What is the NEBDN RoE – Records of Experience?
The purpose of the RoE is to ensure student dental nurses receive summative assessments carried out in the workplace to an approved standard. All those involved in the assessment process must adhere to the benchmarks and performance criteria set out in the Record of Experience Checklists and Marking Guide.
The RoE is composed of a series of Practical Experience Record Sheets (PERS), covering all areas of general dentistry set out in five units. The PERS provide a written record of the student’s performance during the relevant clinical procedures that they refer to, and indicate whether that performance was satisfactory or not.
The range of procedures and the number of PERS to be completed ensures that all registered dental nurses have had a documented minimum of workplace training experiences as a starting point for their careers. Students must provide support to a range of patients during the completion of the RoE and are required to indicate on the tracking document at least one occasion where they have assisted each of the following: an adult patient, a child patient, an elderly patient, a patient with special care requirements.
