Course summary

The blended-learning Postgraduate Certificate in Independent/Supplementary Prescribing allows a wide range of healthcare professionals to qualify as non-medical prescribers. Enhance your career opportunities by qualifying as a non-medical prescriber. The Standard version of our course is for community and primary care pharmacists, nurses, midwives, physiotherapists, podiatrists, radiographers and dietitians. The Clinically Enhanced version is for hospital and mental health pharmacists. If you're a professional in these areas, you'll be able to qualify as an independent or supplementary prescriber with a qualification that meets regulatory standards.

This course is delivered by distance learning, but you'll also spend nine days at the university, covering issues including communication and diagnostic skills, patient assessment, and the legal and ethical aspects of prescribing. The emphasis on each skill or aspect of non-medical prescribing is tailored to meet the needs of the different professions we cater for.

There is high and rising demand for both non-medical prescribing nurse practitioners and pharmacists in GP surgeries or other primary care settings. There are also enhanced career opportunities for radiographers, physiotherapists, podiatrists, dietitians and advanced paramedic practitioners with the prescribing qualification.
