There is a change to the equipment used in the NMC test of competence.

Following health and safety issues we are changing to using infra-red thermometers rather than tympanic thermometers in the assessment of candidates in the NMC test of competence.

We will be implementing this change from 28 March and will update the equipment lists that appear on the website at the end of this month so that candidates are aware of the change.

Infra-red thermometers will be made available to candidates in the test centre so they can familiarise themselves with their use prior to the start of the assessment.
