Salary Range:

The Department of Nursing and Community Health is seeking to appoint an External Examiner for the MSc Nursing Studies (Pre-Registration) – Adult field. One Year Maternity cover

This programme is an exciting and innovative route to nurse registration for graduates from a range of non-nursing backgrounds. The programme sits as a pathway to adult nurse registration for a small number of students, alongside the larger BSc/BSc (Hons) Nursing Studies programme (all fields).

The pathway requires full-time study and, on successful completion, leads to professional registration on Sub-Part 1 of the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) register as a nurse in the field of Adult Nursing. The programme adheres to the NMC ‘Future Nurse’ education standards (2018).

Applications are invited from suitably qualified academic staff that will have experience of managing and assessing students on similar programmes. Experience of external examining would be an advantage, but is not essential. As an External Examiner you will be responsible for the external moderation of a range of modules from the programme and will be invited to review a selection of scripts and comment on assessment content. You would be expected to attend two Assessment Boards (Maybe online) and submit a written report each year.

The period of tenure is for one year and will commence in October 2023. Fantastic opportunity for someone interested in External examiner experience with a smaller programme.

All External Examiner appointments are subject to approval by the University. The University offers support for newly appointed External Examiners.

For further information, or to submit a CV and covering letter, please contact the Programme Leader – David Barber at or 0141 331 8184.
