Both Hertfordshire and Middlesex University offer the Nurse Prescribing Course.
If you would like to express interest in doing this course, email firstname.lastname@example.org
Funding is limited and the following needs to be taken into consideration.
The Non-medical prescribing course requires an up to date CRB check within past 3 years.
If this is out of date please contact the university who will help you to organise this or ask your practice managers. There may be a small charge if the university organises this. Having confidence with Physical Assessment is helpful and the university may suggest doing a Physical Assessment course prior to doing non-medical prescribing. If you are already examining and assessing patients and your GP is prepared to sign you have these skills then you will not need to do the physical assessment course.
We would suggest annual prescribing updates to maintain your CPD.
