The School of Health Sciences is seeking to appoint an External Examiner for their Non-Medical Independent/supplementary prescribing programmes from September 2019 onwards for a four-year term.

Two prescribing pathways are approved; the V300 for nurses, pharmacists and all AHP groups eligible to prescribe and the V150 for community nurses. The v300 course is approved by the following regulators: NMC, GPHC and HCPC and the v150 is approved by the NMC.

The post requires the external examiner to review a range of coursework throughout the year, completion of an annual monitoring report and attendance at the relevant two assessment Boards in Ipswich. Engagement with course team with regard to regulatory quality standards pertaining to all aspects of curricula is actively encouraged. The programme is currently reviewing provision against the new regulatory standards of the NMC, GPHC and HCPC.

Two courses are delivered per academic year, starting September and January. Whilst experienced external examiners would be preferred, those seeking a first external examiner role with relevant prescribing and educational experience within a similar non-medical prescribing programme would also be considered.
