Course summary

This course is designed to provide the main theoretical perspectives associated with evidence-based therapeutics, the consultation process including concordance and the legal, ethical, and professional issues associated with the Independent/Supplementary prescribing role. The programme aims to support the application of theoretical knowledge to practice by incorporating a minimum of 90 hours of supervised clinical experience in which students have the opportunity to work alongside, and are assessed, by their Practice Assessor. In addition, they would receive supervision and guidance via a nominated Practice Supervisor who is also an experienced prescriber. The taught components are therefore developed in clinical practice, enabling students to develop their skills including the specific competencies required to prescribe safely, effectively, and appropriately within their own area of professional clinical expertise (RPS, 2016). This Independent/Supplementary Prescriber Preparation Postgraduate Certificate is approved by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and conforms to Realising Professionalism: Standards for education and training Part 1: Standards framework for nursing and midwifery education, Part 2: Standards for student supervision and assessment, Part 3: Standards for prescribing programmes (NMC, 2018).
