OBA is the assessment process for Internationally Qualified Nurses and Midwives (IQNMs) to become registered nurses in Australia. An IQNM must have an international nursing qualification relevant to similar competencies to apply for OBA Australia. An international student must go through OBA (Outcomes-Based Assessment) to become an RN (Registered Nurse) in Australia.
OBA is a two-stage assessment process that we have mentioned below.
Stage One: NCLEX-RN
NCLEX-RN (National Council Licensure Examination-Registered Nurses) is a nationwide standardized test that AHPRA (Australian Health Practitioner Regulation Agency) takes to determine if a nursing graduate is ready to practice nursing in Australia.
In the first assessment process, candidates are required to clear the NCLEX-RN exam which is a completely computer-based exam and is consists of multiple-choice questions (MCQ). One must earn a required score in NCLEX-RN before participating in the second assessment process.
Stage Two: OSCE
OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Examination) is a type of examination that is designed to test clinical skill performance and communication and clinical examination skills of an IQNM (Internationally Qualified Nurses and Midwives). One must pass both the NCLEX-RN and OSCE to become a registered nurse in Australia.
In addition to NCLEX-RN and OSCE, a candidate may also be asked for a required score in an English Language Proficiency Test (IELTS/TOEFL/OET) to become a registered nurse in Australia.
If you are planning to get a nursing license and work in Australia, you can join our institute, NCLEC In Nepal where we provide preparation classes for OBA, including NCLEX-RN preparation classes.
