MSc in Advanced Practice (Non-Medical Prescribing)
This is a specialist pathway of the MSc in Advanced Practice.
Non-medical Prescribing aims to provide patients with quicker and more efficient access to medicines and to make the best use of the skills of pharmacists, nurses, midwives and allied health professions.
About the Programme
Through the taught days and the supervised days in practice, the attending professionals will further develop in a number of areas the theoretical knowledge required for prescribing as well as applying that knowledge to their practice.
The programme is designed to prepare nurses and midwives to practise as an Independent Prescriber and allied health professionals to practice as Supplementary Prescribers. In doing so, it meets the relevant standards set by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) and the Health Professions Council (HPC). Furthermore, the programme develops the critical analysis and personal reflection skills of course participants and prepares them for lifelong professional development.
