Objective structured clinical examinations (OSCEs) are high-stakes, stressful assessments for both examiners and students under any circumstances. During the COVID-19 global pandemic, a UK wide lockdown resulted in a temporary postponement of all veterinary nursing practical assessments, until appropriate procedures and government sanctions permitted OSCEs to be carried out in a safe environment. This is a reflective account of holding OSCE style assessments using a social distancing protocol, highlighting the positive impact these measures had on student assessment experience.
