MSc and BSc (Hons) Specialist Community Public Health Nursing programmes (Health Visiting, School Nursing and Occupational Health Nursing)

Our friendly team requires an external examiner for the MSc and BSc (Hons) Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (SCPHN) (Health Visiting, School Nursing, and Occupational Health Nursing) programmes, which are run concurrently alongside our Community Specialist Practice programmes (District Nursing and General Practice Nursing). 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 registrable qualification of SCPHN on successful completion. A prescribing qualification, V100 or V300 are optional modules within the programme.

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

The following core 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)
• Public Health and Health Promotion (Level 6 & 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 an Occupational Health Nurse route so some of the new modules will include this specialism.
