“OET enhanced my skills, knowledge and attitude as a health care provider.”

“I would definitely recommend OET to other professionals because this will not only improve your language skills but also it will enhance your skills, knowledge and attitude in becoming a better health care provider.”

“It changed my life, because I learned a lot of things doing OET especially about becoming a better and effective nurse. Also, it helped me build confidence and taught me the importance of patient and health care.”

Nursing, Lovely Subeldia from Philippines

OET has given me the confidence to communicate with my patients and colleagues.

“Since English is my second language, OET prepared me for the real world. As a nurse, communication is very important.

It has made my life easier since I am now eligible for registration. It has given me the confidence to communicate with my patients and colleagues. It made me very proud of myself and raised my self esteem. All the preparation and sacrifices I made to pass the OET paid off and I am very happy for choosing OET.”
