External Examiners – for BSc (Hons) Nursing- Mental Health

Opening Date:
15 Apr 2019
Closing Date:
4 Jun 2019
Salary Range:

We are seeking to appoint an external examiner for Mental Health nursing, to our new and exciting pre- registration nursing curriculum to commence Sept 2019 (subject to NMC approval May 2019). 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. 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 but not essential. The existing external examiners for adult, child, learning disabilities and mental health nursing would be a source of support. An induction programme is provided for External Examiners.

The post would commence in September 2019. All appointments are for a period of four years.

In the first instance would interested applicants please e-mail, attaching their CV to:
