We are seeking to replace an external examiner during the next academic year for the course outlined below from January 2015. The University of Brighton offers extensive support for external examiners and holds preparation workshops annually. Further support is also provided by the relevant course leader. The University would normally expect that external examiners attend a minimum of one examination board per year but may be required to be available by telephone at other times.
The University applies the following criteria for this external examiner post:
• The applicant will normally hold course leadership of a similar course in their own institution;
• Applicants should be employed within an academic university appointment;
• He/she must not have been a University of Brighton examiner within the last five years;
• He/she will have a relevant qualification registered with the Nursing and Midwifery Council and examining experience
The University of Brighton would not normally appoint more than one external examiner from the same university.
The aim of the BSc(Hons) Community Specialist Practice course is to prepare community specialist nurses who are responsive to the healthcare needs of various client groups across different settings. This will be reflected in the capacity to meet the four broad areas of the NMC Standards for Specialist Education and Practice (2002) and requires the ability to assess and problem-solve collaboratively and promote social inclusion within changing healthcare environments.
