Abstract
This paper presents the designing and implementation of an objective structured clinical examination (OSCE) in the assessment of mental health competencies of undergraduate nursing students. It begins by highlighting the importance of OSCE in measuring mental health competencies over traditional mental health clinical written examination on the basis of literature review. The designing and implementation of the OSCE is explored and faculty’s reflections on the process is highlighted. This paper narrates the series of actions undertaken by the team, the challenges faced and how to overcome the same. The paper concludes by advocating OSCE to complement along with other clinical evaluations in student competency assessment.

Key words: OSCE, clinical evaluation, mental health nursing, designing and implementation, undergraduate students.
