It is a fact that evaluation supports education and even directs it. During this stage, education planners should define the objectives in learning and should make a decision on the most suitable evaluation methods to achieve those objectives, especially in evaluating cognitive learning. While assessment methods such as written exams, homework, and projects are used, assessment methods should include performance evaluation in behavioural learning in addition to knowledge assessment. In the literature, the Objective Structured Clinical Examination has been shown to be an effective method for evaluating knowledge, attitude, and skill, and the adoption of this examination for evaluating student performance in health proficiency programs is increasing day by day because it reflects the clinical environment in real life. The Objective Structured Clinical Examination is also starting to be used as a popular method for evaluating clinical efficiency in the field of
nursing. Like in other fields, in order to achieve the best practice and provide an objective evaluation, it is important to understand the advantages and disadvantages of the Objective Structured Clinical Examination and organize exams to support student learning in accordance with the recommendations for implementation.
