At some point in your three-year course, you will be undertaking these kinds of exam.

Number one, general nursing exam.

Number two, anatomy and physiology exams.

Number three, OSCE's, these stand for Objective Structural Clinical Examinations and are practical assessments and how you perform clinical skills.

Number four, all important drug calculation exam.

And lastly, your placements.

Now that's quite a lot of assessment methods and quite a lot of different examinations, but this is what we need to do in order to become Nurses in the UK.

And trust me, once you've done all those exams, all those placements, it will be worth it in the end.

That's it from me, take care and stay safe.
