The University of Central Lancashire is seeking to appoint experienced and suitably qualified academics to act as External Examiners for the Pre-registration Mental Health and Adult Nursing programmes, as well as for the FdSc Nursing Associate programme.
The School of Nursing has a long tradition of delivering pre-registration nursing programmes, successfully validating and delivering a programme in line with the NMC Standards for Education, since September 2019. The programme delivery includes both full-time direct entry students and apprentice learners.
The successful applicant must be registered with the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) and have relevant experience of working in mental health or adult nursing practice settings as well as teaching on a pre-registration nursing programme. S/he will work with our existing External Examiners to review a number of modules within the pre-registration mental health nursing programmes. This will include modules delivered at levels 5, 6 and 7, with some of the modules being shared between fields. FdSc Nursing Associate programmes have modules delivered at levels 4 & 5. An induction is provided that the appointee will be expected to attend, and ideally, the external examiner will have had experience of external examining.
The External Examiner will be expected to attend the programme assessment board, consider student work and contribute to the overall assessment process.
Applications are invited from suitably qualified and experienced academic staff. All appointments are subject to the candidate meeting the University’s criteria for appointment.
The appointment will be with effect from October 2020 for pre-registration nursing programmes, and from March 2021 for FdSc Nursing Associate programme, and will be for a period of four years. To apply, please submit your Curriculum Vitae to LCarey3@uclan.ac.uk
