This quantitative study investigated the influence of marital status on the midwives' attitude towards OSCE and how this affects their performance in the examination. Two hypotheses guided the study. HO 1 sort to find out if there exist a significant influence of marital status of midwives on their attitude towards OSCE as well as performance in the examination and HO 11 states: there is no significant joint influence of midwives' attitude and marital status on their performance in OSCE. Ex-post facto design was used to carry out the study. 502 midwives from 8 institutes of midwifery education in Akwa Ibom & Cross River states were engaged in the study. Two validated instruments, OSCE stake holders' questionnaire (OSCEQ) and Achievement test on OSCE were used to collect data for the study. Data were analyzed using linear regression analysis of variance (ANOVA). The findings show that marital status significantly influences midwives' perception of OSCE. However, there is no significant influence of marital status on midwives' attitude towards OSCE. The implication of these findings is, it will be useful and helpful to midwife educators in counseling of new midwifery students on OSCE.
