Abstract

The Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) is used in nurse practitioner (NP) education programs to evaluate students’ clinical competency. The OSCE was developed to be done with students on campus in a simulation laboratory, but for online NP programs, an on-campus environment is a barrier to the use of OSCEs. The virtual OSCE eliminates this barrier and provides an effective method of implementing OSCEs and evaluating student competencies in online NP education.
