We are seeking to appoint an external examiner predominantly for learning disability nursing, to this exciting full time pre-registration nursing course that commenced in September 2012. On completion students are eligible for registration with the Nursing and Midwifery Council in one of the four fields of nursing.
As the course is largely integrated, external examiners will be expected to undertake some work across the fields. Field specific modules will however be allocated to external examiners from that field. There is also an inter-professional learning strand throughout, with opportunity to examine work across other professions. External examiners will be required to contribute to the assessment process, moderate and report on student work, visit practice placements, attend Course Assessment Boards and submit an annual report.
Appointees will have relevant field related experience, academic qualifications to post graduate level, including a recordable teaching qualification and will be registered with the NMC. Previous experience as an external examiner would be an advantage. However, the existing external examiners for adult, child and mental health nursing would be a source of support. An induction programme is provided for External Examiners.
The post would commence at the beginning of the next academic year; September/October 2017. All appointments are for a period of four years.
In the first instance would interested applicants please e-mail, attaching their CV to:
