These are set out in terms of professional competencies, with the assessment method clearly outlined (e.g.. how the skills and knowledge will be assessed in the final examinations - via written questions such as multiple choice (MCQ) or extended matching questions (EMQ) or via Objective Structured Clinical Examinations - OSCEs).
All candidates entered for the National Diploma in Dental Nursing should read this guidance. It contains information on the format of the examinations (written and OSCE) and specifies the dress code for candidates. Rules relating to the conduct of the examinations are also outlined.
