It has been purposefully written to develop the skills and expertise of a student dental nurse studying at this level whilst affording opportunities to articulate onto the Level 6 Dental Nursing course.
The course also involves a placement within a dental environment where you will be supported by a New College Lanarkshire (NCL) dental work based assessor who will support you in placement and guide and observe the on the job skills you develop.
3 subjects at National 4 including English or Introduction to Dental Nursing. You will attend an information session, skills assessment and interview.
You will require a satisfactory criminal record check from Disclosure Scotland to show that you are suitable for this type of course. Contact Disclosure Scotland for details on the type you would need.
You will be required to be immunised in line with Occupational Health's recommendation.
