Course Description

Certificate In Dental Sedation Nursing The Certificate in Dental Sedation Nursing is a qualification suitable for dental nurses who assist in the surgery during routine conscious sedation. This examination is only suitable for candidates engaged in this type of work on a regular basis as the completion of a Record of Experience, including log sheets, is a requirement for the examination. Syllabus The syllabus for the Certificate in Dental Sedation Nursing reflects the knowledge, skills and attitudes which a dental nurse assisting in sedation procedures needs to develop in order to practise competently. NEBDN continually monitors and reviews the structure of the qualification to ensure that it meets current educational requirements and the needs of the profession. The syllabus includes words such as describe, explain, identify or demonstrate which indicate the depth of understanding required and will determine how the assessments for the qualification are carried out. The application of knowledge in practical situations and the skills required are assessed through a Record of Experience. Training Practical training should be undertaken in the dental environment under the supervision of a dentist and recorded on log sheets in a Record of Experience. Theoretical training should be undertaken by attendance on a course. Although it is not obligatory, it is strongly recommended that all candidates attend a formal course of study where the practical skills acquired in the surgery will be supplemented by the theoretical underpinning knowledge. The course should aim to prepare the dental nurse to the standard required of a ?second appropriate person' as required by the Department of Health. It is suggested that a total of 30 hours (including practical experience and theoretical teaching) is normally sufficient to cover the course but this is not prescriptive as the delivery may vary from centre to centre. Examination The examination, which assesses underpinning knowledge and understanding, takes place on the third Saturday of March and September each year and is held in selected major towns and cities throughout the UK. The examination consists of a written paper and practicaloral examination.
