Salary Range:

The University of Bedfordshire, Faculty of Health and Social Sciences is seeking to appoint an external examiner to the above courses. These are full-time courses which have both a standard 3 year delivery route and an 18 month route for students with a Foundation Degree working within a healthcare setting. Students who successfully complete either course are eligible to apply for entry to the NMC register as Registered Nurse: Child.

The courses contains some units which are taken with students from the other fields of nursing. The successful candidate will therefore join a team of external examiners for the pre-registration nursing courses and will take responsibility for the Child Field Units and a small proportion of the shared units.

The successful candidate must be Registered Nurse: Child and will be asked to attend approximately 3 academic boards per year. We are keen to recruit someone who will also be willing to attend practice and simulation assessments during the academic year. Whilst external examiner experience is desirable, we welcome expressions of interest from individuals new to this role. The successful candidate will be offered an induction programme and will be supported throughout the duration of their tenure.

The term of office for the successful candidate will be for a period of 4 years from October 2018.

For expressions of interest please send a current CV to Steve Bilham (Course Co-ordinator): stephen.bilham@beds.ac.uk
