Outcomes Based Assessment (OBA)

Australian Outcomes Based Assessment (OBA) Preparatory Program

In March 2020, the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) replaced the previous bridging program pathway with an Outcomes Based Assessment (OBA) for Internationally Qualified Nurses and Midwives (IQNMs).

Under the OBA assessment, the eligible international nurses will have to undertake two examinations called NCLEX-RN and OSCE (Objective structured clinical examination) to attain the nursing registration in Australia.

About the OBA Preparatory Program

Lead College’s Outcomes Based Assessment (OBA) preparatory program has been crafted to thoroughly prepare international nurses for both NCLEX RN and OSCE examination.

Maria Pamela Carey NCLEX-RN PASSER

First of all, I want to express my sincerest gratitude to Lead College, especially to Coaches Abel and Allen, for all their hard work to help me achieve the success to pass my NCLEX-RN. Upon knowing that I need to take the NCLEX-RN again, as mine had elapsed for the minimum 10-year requirement of passing the examination and being out of college for more than a decade, I was worried because I’m not sure where and how to start. I am so glad I’ve found Lead College on my first search. The team has been very helpful and accommodating, and I was given the opportunity to join the August 2021 batch upon enrollment. The daily class recordings has very much helped to catch up, and being present and active in the online classes is a lot more beneficial as the Coaches provide real time discussions and feedbacks. We were also provided additional study references, books and question banks. The Coaches truly exude professionalism and expertise in each and every subject. They provide guidance and advices which really builds up your confidence and critical thinking skills in taking up confusing and difficult concepts and questions. The topics or questions may be tough, but the Coaches were there to hone you and prepare you for success. I am truly grateful as this won’t be possible without them. Huge thank you to Lead College team! Thank you for leading me to success! I PASSED MY NCLEX!! Best Christmas gift ever!
