NEBDN has been updated to provide more specific learning outcomes, and will be introduced as of Monday 23rd September 2019. It will be available to view and download on our website https://www.schoolofdentalnursing.com/
The syllabus is linked to the assessment methods and new standards used by NEBDN, as well as GDC preparing for practice learning outcomes. The syllabus includes 11 modules with various learning outcomes, these are spilt into performance criteria and knowledge criteria. The syllabus has been rewritten to support Course Providers to include the right amount of detail in teaching sessions.
All NEBDN exam questions will be mapped to the new syllabus by April 2020. Therefore, we request that all course providers are asked to review their teaching materials, to ensure all aspects of the new syllabus are covered, it is anticipated that minimal change to course content will be required. However, any students that have been taught using the existing syllabus and are sitting the exam in April 2020 should not be disadvantaged, as the requirements of the syllabus remain the same and still link to preparing for practice and the content matches the current RoE requirements.
Firstly, on behalf of all the School staff I would like to wish you a happy, safe and successful 2021. Although the general situation does not look too good at present with the announcement of the new lockdown there are reasons for us all to be optimistic.
Yes, if you are looking for a secure career in a people facing environment where you can make a real difference to the health and wellbeing of dental patients.
