We are seeking to appoint 2 external examiners; for adult and learning disability nursing, to this exciting full time pre-registration nursing course that commenced in September 2012. On completion students are eligible for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council in one of the four fields of nursing.
As the course is largely integrated external examiners will be expected to undertake some work across the fields. Field specific modules will however be allocated to external examiners from that field. There is also an interprofessional learning strand throughout, with opportunity to work across other professions. External examiners will be required to consider student work and contribute to the assessment process, visit practice placements, attend Course Assessment Boards and submit an annual report.
The appointees will have relevant field related experience, academic qualifications to post graduate level and will be registered with the NMC. Previous experience as an external examiner would be an advantage; the existing external examiners for adult, child and mental health nursing would be a source of support.
The posts would commence at the beginning of the next academic year; September 2015. All appointments are for a period of four years.
