It is true that OET will have content that is pertaining to healthcare and being a nurse, it may not be difficult for you to understand or respond to questions. But, here, the reality is different. OET is not going to test whether the nurse is more proficient in nursing or not, whether the nurse has got good nursing qualities or not, whether the nurse has got the experience of nursing or not. Rather, it is going to assess whether the nurse has got the medical language skills nor not. To be able to work in English healthcare environment, a nurse is expected to be more fluent in healthcare language. Day-to-day conversations may involve the use of this special language. A nurse will have to talk to the doctors, take the suggestion from the doctors. A nurse will have to speak to the patients or the relatives of the patient from time-to-time. A nurse will have to prepare the notes and share with the head staff. There can be so many duties to perform which can’t be possible if you're not good at English. Your dream to work in one for the best hospitals or the clinics in English country will remain just a dream and you will not be able to achieve what you would like to achieve in your life.
