OET/ the Occupational English Test is an international English language test that assesses the language and communication skills of healthcare professionals (such as nurses) who seek to register and practice in an English-speaking environment in countries like the UK, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore etc.

It provides a valid and reliable assessment of all four language skills – listening, reading, writing and speaking – with an emphasis on communication in medical and health professional settings.

NMC/ the Nursing and Midwifery Council has recently recognised OET for the registration as a nurse.

Why Neptune for OET?

Though both IELTS and OET are language tests, OET would be the best option for healthcare professionals, especially for “Nurses” as it is profession related and they can use their professional knowledge and experience while attempting the OET.
