What is OET for Nursing? 

  • The Occupational English Test (OET) is an English Language Test for healthcare professionals.

  • ​The Nursing subtest is for qualified Nurses who need to demonstrate they meet the language requirements to work in the UK, and is accepted by the Nursing and Midwifery Council as an alternative to IELTS (Academic).​

  • The OET test examines all 4 language skills of Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening. The Listening and Reading components are the same for all healthcare professions, while the Writing and Speaking components are specific to the Nursing profession, and are based on typical workplace situations.
