OMSB partners exclusively with Pearson VUE for the Omani Occupational Classification Examination for Nurses

To further achieve its vision to improve healthcare by providing valid, reliable medical examinations that comply with international examination standards, the Oman Medical Specialty Board (OMSB) has signed a multi-year agreement with Pearson VUE, under which the latter will exclusively administer the Omani Occupational Classification Examination for Nurses.

The 2.5-hour examination consists of 100 multiple-choice questions and covers eight domains of nursing designed to measure the competencies a nurse would need: principles of care, evidence-based practice including research and epidemiology, adult health nursing, maternal health nursing, child health nursing, mental health nursing, community health nursing, and gerontological nursing.

The Pearson VUE exam is computer-based and available in Pearson VUE global test centers. Candidates can register for and schedule exams at
