OFTC Policy for Psychological Services Bureau (PSB) Testing

OFTC requires that a practical nursing applicant must score a 220 out of a possible 320 points on the PSB exam to compete.

A student may test only twice within each academic year (August 24, 2015 – August 3, 2016) with the first PSB test and retest being at least 30 days apart. The higher of the two total scores is used in the competitive formula.

Eligible PSB scores must be from the PSB Aptitude for Practical Nursing 3rd Version or the PSB Aptitude for Health Occupations 3rd Version (radiology).
