Two External Examiners for the BSc (Hons) Nursing At the University of Lincoln (1 Adult Field and 1 Mental Health)

Opening Date:
14 Aug 2014
Closing Date:
10 Sep 2014
Salary Range:

We are looking to appoint two external examiners for the BSc (Hons) Nursing, one for the Adult field and one for Mental Health, to commence in October 2014.

Closing date for applications is 10th September 2014.

Many of our assessments take place on-line and you will be able to view the work in this way. To ensure that all NMC requirements are met we hold a number of module and programme boards across the year.

The appointments are from October 2014 and will be for a 3 year period. Experience of teaching and assessing at undergraduate level with current field specific registration is an essential pre-requisite.

External examiners are required to review and evaluate assessment marking; be a member of, and attend, Board of Examiners meetings; comment and give advice on programme content, balance and structure; engage with students in practice; and to complete an annual report as part of the University of Lincoln’s quality assurance mechanisms.

All appointments are subject to meeting the University’s criteria for the appointment of external examiners.

The successful applicants would be appointed with effect from October 2014 for a term of three academic years, and would join a supportive team of 2 further external examiners.

The University provides an induction programme for all new external examiners.
