Results: there are significant difference of mean performance expressed note between the OSCE ic and the OSCE traditional, so there is learning, progress in the performance of clinical skills in students and improves performance.
Conclusions: the effectiveness and efficiency of the devised evaluative instrument have been proved, so it could be applied across the different levels of the nursing studies to assess the initial and/or final clinical skills and to encourage self-learning.
