6 Months either starting in September or January.
This is an innovative multi-professional course accredited by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC), the General Pharmaceutical Council (GPC) and the Health Professions Council (HPC).
The supporting legislative framework enables practitioners, who meet the entry requirements, to undertake independent and/or supplementary prescribing. On successful completion of the course practitioners will have their prescribing qualification recorded with the appropriate professional regulator.
Students on this course will build on current practice to develop the knowledge, skills and competencies required to be able to prescribe safely, appropriately and cost-effectively as Independent and/ Supplementary Non-Medical Prescribers.
The course is based at the Ipswich waterfront campus and runs over two semesters, starting in September with the programme normally completed in 6 months. Campus based learning is organised over 26 days and there is also a requirement to complete 12 days of supervised practice working with a named medical supervisor (Doctor). In addition to the timetabled programme you will be expected to engage in related independent study activities.
The course can be accessed as a stand- alone course in its own right, undertaken at level 7 (masters). It is also an integrated component of longer degree/masters programmes such as the BSc Nurse Practitioner and the MSc Advanced Clinical Practice.
