The curriculum is based on the GDC registration requirements for dental nurses.  It sets out the knowledge, skills and behavioural requirements that should be developed and demonstrated.  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).
