MSc and BSc (Hons) Community Specialist Practice programmes (District Nursing and General Practice Nursing)

Our friendly team requires an external examiner for the MSc and BSc (Hons) Community Specialist Practice (District Nursing & General Practice Nursing) programmes, which are run concurrently alongside our Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (Health Visiting, School Nursing and Occupational Health Nursing) programmes. These programmes are based in the Department of Health Care Practice within the College of Health and Social Care. The programmes are accessed for one year full time or two/three years part time. The students are all Registered Nurses or Midwives with the NMC prior to commencing the course and will attain a recordable qualification of Community Specialist Practitioner and V100 prescribing on successful completion.

It is essential that the external examiner holds the Community Specialist Practitioner and V100 Prescribing recordable qualification. The appointment will be for 4 years, commencing September 2017.

The following modules will be included in the external moderation duties:

• Evidence Based Project (Level 6 – 20 credits)
• Applied V100 Prescribing (Level 6 & 7 – 20 credits)
• Principles of Practice Assessment (Level 6 & 7 – 20 credits)
• Diagnostic Reasoning in Clinical Practice (Level 7 – 20 credits)

The programmes have two assessment boards per academic year (April and August) which the External Examiner will be expected to attend.

The programmes are due for revalidation in March 2017 so the new programme will commence in September 2017. The revalidation will include a General Practice Nurse route so some of the new modules will include this specialism.
