My name is Sunny Khangura and I am the course developer of Sunny’s OSCE Sessions. I graduated from the University of Victoria in 2012 and began my NP career working in a busy family practice clinic with an exceptional family physician. Following this, I worked in psychiatry and then took on a position as a Director of Health with a non profit organization. Presently, I work as a Nurse Practitioner in Neurosurgery at Vancouver General Hospital and work with an amazing group of individuals and patients.
My motivation to create the course was spurred by my personal experience of preparing for the Objective Structured Clinical Exam (OSCE). There was a scarcity of resources and formal instruction on preparing for the exam and it was difficult to sort through all the content we were expected to know. It was also challenging to find relevant templates to guide my studying and learn how to study the associated tasks of the OSCE such as obtaining focused histories, performing physical exams and developing management plans.
Over time, I was able to develop systematic and efficient studying methods and techniques to guide OSCE preparation. I developed this course in 2013 and have been offering this course to NP students and practicing NPs from across Canada and the United States. In addition to supporting OSCE preparation, the course serves as a refresher for NPs who have been working in specialized areas as well as for those looking to enhance clinical skills for practice.
