All you need to know about the CBT exam
The NMC CBT exam is a competence-based evaluation that assesses the skills and abilities of individuals who wish to join or re-join the NHS, either from within or outside the UK, after a prolonged period away from the profession.
The first part of the Test of Competence is a computer-based assessment called CBT.
What is a Competency-based Test/ Assessment?
CBT is a component of the Nursing and Midwifery Council’s (NMC) registration process which assesses the core competencies, knowledge, and attitudes required for safe and effective nursing practice within the UK.
What is the purpose of the CBT test?
The CBT exam evaluates your understanding and application of different aspects of nursing and midwifery practices in the UK. It includes questions that consider your skills in analysing, synthesizing, and assessing other areas of practice, such as:
- adult nursing
- child nursing
- learning disability
- mental health nursing
In order to gain UK registration in the area of nursing, you are interested in, you must complete a Competency-Based Test (CBT) that will assess your skills relevant to that nursing speciality. The CBT must be completed in a practice setting.
