Pearson Vue, the test partner for UK Nursing and Midwifery Council Computer Based Test has begin to accept payments directly from test takers from Nigeria, Ghana, Cameroon among others according to information circulating on social media.
This is coming barely two months after the founder of the popular CBT group-Nursesarena.com CBT Group raised a petition on Change.org asking NMC to mandate Pearson Vue to start accepting payments from applicants. The petition went viral and was signed by over 3,000 Nurses who narrated their ordeals in the hand of CBT test centres.
Prior to this development, test candidates are at the mercy of CBT centres who charged N65,000 instead of the approved N43,000.
Expressing his satisfaction with this new development on Nursesarena.com CBT Group, Idowu Olabode Peculiar thanked all Nurses who signed and shared the petition. He also expressed optimism that this new development will stop test centre from extorting Nurses in Nigeria. He also enjoined all to report any unauthorized charges by test centres to him for further action.
Congratulations Nurses. Don’t forget to share with other Nurses!
