Practice Certificate in Non Medical Prescribing (Nurses) or Practice Certificate in Non-Medical Prescribing (Pharmacists)


Course Description

Why choose this course:

• It's the first validated interprofessional programme in England, so you'll be studying on an innovative, forward thinking course that is responsive to Government legislation.

• You'll study with nurses and pharmacists.

• The course is flexible, and you can study at undergraduate or postgraduate level.

• You'll be encouraged to apply theory to practice throughout this course, so it will be very relevant to you and your career.

About the course:

The Government has recently extended prescribing responsibilities to non-medical professionals within the health care sector. So, we've created this course to prepare professionals, such as pharmacists or nurses, to become independent prescribers.

Independent prescribers are responsible and accountable for assessment of patients with undiagnosed or diagnosed conditions and for the decisions about their clinical management, including prescribing.

Supplementary prescribing is a voluntary partnership between an independent prescriber and a supplementary prescriber, to work on a patient specific clinical management plan with the patient's agreement.

This course will help you to:

• improve the care you provide without compromising patient safety
• make better use of your skills as a health care professional
• make it easier for patients to get the medicines they need
• contribute to a more flexible team working across the NHS.
