It is important you receive an non-medical prescribing (NMP) information pack / details of dates and NMC requirements BEFORE you submit an online application. Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org to request an information pack for NMP (V300 or V150).
You are not guaranteed a place on the course until completion of the information pack.
The Non-Medical Prescribing programme is for registered nurses and allied health professionals. You will undertake two modules at level 6: The study of “Clinical pharmacology for health care professionals (6NH033)” and “Non-medical prescribing practice (6NH026)”.
Independent prescribing is approved for nurses, physiotherapists, podiatrists and chiropodists. Supplementary prescribing is also approved for some HCPC allied health professionals namely physiotherapists, podiatrists and chiropodists, radiologists and optometrists.
You will be required to meet the specific professional entry requirements laid down by the NMC/ HCPC. Health service industry nomination and support by a designated medical practitioner/mentor is expected in line with professional standards which will underpin the award for you to gain skills and knowledge for independent/supplementary prescribing from the British National Formulary.
