The implementation framework outlined in this paper has been developed from feedback of a trial across three different nursing and midwifery programmes and is designed to assist educators to incorporate OSCEs within their curricula. There is value in flagging the pedagogical principles embodied in the framework and alerting educators to their importance for more meaningful student learning. For each step practical advice is provided contributing to the utility of this approach. Considerations are systematic ensuring that the use of OSCEs in health care curricula assures judicious use of resources to achieve desired student outcomes.
