Course summary

Overview

This is a well-established and successful independent / supplementary prescribing programme for community and primary care pharmacists, nurses, midwives, physiotherapists, podiatrists, radiographers and dietitians.

It is a part-time, blended learning programme which leads to you qualifying as an independent prescriber (community and primary care pharmacists, nurses, midwives, physiotherapists, podiatrists, paramedics and therapeutic radiographers) or as a supplementary prescriber (diagnostic radiographers and dietitians). You develop the knowledge and skills to practise as prescribers and to meet the standards set by your respective professional/regulatory body. Available as eight or 12 months duration. Also available at Level 6 for nurses/midwives.

Which programme is right for me?

This information is for the STANDARD PROGRAMME for community pharmacists, nurses, midwives, physiotherapists, podiatrists, radiographers and dietitians. If you are a hospital, mental health, community trust or CCG pharmacist, please go to our page on the Clinically Enhanced Pharmacist Independent Prescribing Programme. GP Pharmacists may apply for either programme on a self-funded basis.

We also run a 40-credit module as part of the University of Greenwich MSc Advanced Clinical Practice. If you are part of this Greenwich programme and have selected the Prescribing module then you do also need to complete our Prescribing Application form. Select this link to the Nurses, Midwives and Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (SCPHN) application form to complete this part of the process.

Careers

There is a high and rising demand for a range of healthcare professionals to qualify as non-medical prescribers. There are career opportunities for both non-medical prescribing nurse practitioners and pharmacists in GP surgeries or other primary care settings and enhanced options for radiographers, physiotherapists, podiatrists and dietitians with the prescribing qualification.

Professional recognition

Accreditation with the GPhC, HCPC or the NMC as a non-medical prescriber.
