External Examiner – BSc (Hons) Mental Health Nursing

Opening Date:
21 Sep 2017
Closing Date:
16 Oct 2017
Salary Range:

Leeds Beckett University is seeking to appoint an External Examiner for the BSc (Hons) Mental Health Nursing course. Students who successfully complete the course are eligible for registration with the NMC. Applicants must be registered with the NMC as a Mental Health Nurse, and have a practice/clinical focus and a strong academic background.

The External Examiner will be expected to work across both adult nursing and mental health nursing fields of practice as the course is largely integrated, in conjunction with the existing External Examiner team. Field specific modules will be allocated to examiners who have the relevant experience. The External Examiners will also be expected to visit practice placements as required. Previous experience of external examining is not necessary as the University is able to provide mentorship to the successful applicant. A induction day is offered and further support is also provided by the Course Leader and module team.

The appointment commences on 1 November 2017 and the tenure is for a period of four years. All External Examiner appointments are subject to approval by the University. External Examiners will be expected to attend Board of Examiners meetings at least once a year and submit an annual report.
