Objective structured clinical examinations (OSCEs) inspire fear and loathing in both student veterinary nurses and clinical coaches alike. With different courses using different OSCE assessment criteria and different styles of assessment, students can find preparing for their OSCEs stressful and confusing if they receive different advice from difference sources. A further source of anxiety may be a perceived element of unfamiliarity with the equipment and resources likely to be present in the examination; if a student uses one type of centrifuge in practice, but then faces a different model in their OSCE this can trigger panic, and shaking hands may struggle to fill a capillary tube, especially with the added pressure of an examiner armed with a clipboard standing in attendance!
