This module will enable Nurses, Midwives and AHPs to demonstrate safe prescribing practice within their own specialty. On successful completion, successful students will gain academic accreditation and advanced skills required to prescribe safely in line with current professional regulations and thus, will be eligible to record the qualification of Independent and Supplementary Prescriber with the NMC or HCPC. Furthermore, you can also either use this qualification as a stand-alone double module or continue your studies by using the 40 credit points towards a Masters qualification at The University of Northampton.
- The Nonmedical Prescriber qualification enables practitioners, working within their professional scope of practice, to legally prescribe licensed and unlicensed medications within the British National Formulary (BNF). This is in line with current legislation, employment policy and professional standards.
- The Supplementary Prescribing component of the course enables qualified practitioners to prescribe in partnership with an Independent Prescriber and the patient in accordance with a formal clinical management plan that is patient specific.
Teaching approaches are varied and include lectures, tutorials, group work, enquiry based learning and blogging, reflection, case presentation, experiential learning and interactive lectures from University lecturers, clinicians and practicing non-medical prescribers.
