Dental Nurse Qualifications

NHS Education for Scotland (NES) aims to provide active learning opportunities for members of the dental team to achieve both Higher National Units (HN Units) & Professional Development Awards (PDA) which are awarded by the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA).

These PDAs and HN Units are all mapped to the Scottish Credit Qualifications Framework (SCQF).  The Scottish Credit and Qualifications Framework has 12 levels. The different levels indicate the level of difficulty of a particular qualification.
