We are looking to expand our team of external examiners and would welcome applications from suitably qualified and experienced nurse academics working in higher education who have relevant teaching, learning and assessment experience, and who are registered with the NMC.
For the BSc (Hons) Mental Health Nursing role, registration as a mental health nurse or significant experience of working in this field (in practice or education) is required.
For the MSc Nursing role, applications would be especially welcome from applicants who have dual registration or significant experience of working in more than one field of nursing.
The successful applicants will work alongside other external examiners from all four fields of nursing practice, to review a number of modules within the pre-registration nursing programmes. This will include modules delivered at levels 5-6 (BSc) and 7 (MSc) including some cross-field modules.
Experience of external examining is desired, but first-time applicants will be considered and there is an online package of training available as well as live induction programmes (when social distancing restrictions are lifted).
The External Examiners will be expected to attend the Course Assessment Boards (using online networking platforms or in person); consider student work and contribute to the overall assessment process for both theory and practice modules.
The appointments will be from September 2020 (or earlier if possible) and will be for a period of 4 years.
