Optional modules

You may be able to replace the Community Practitioner Nurse Prescribing module with one of the two above optional modules. This is only applicable to you if you already have a Nurse Prescribing qualification recorded with the NMC (health visiting students) or if the Nurse Prescribing module is not relevant to your future qualified role (school nursing students).
