This course builds on the prescribing knowledge and competence that you have already developed as a competent NMC community practitioner prescriber to support the development of your role.

Successful completion of all components of this course will lead to the achievement of a recordable prescribing qualification (V300 Independent and Supplementary Prescriber) with your regulatory body (Nursing and Midwifery Council).

This is a non-credit bearing course which includes online learning and up to 12 days of supervised practice with assessment over approximately 22 weeks (5 months). The amount of practice supervision time will vary greatly between individuals and their role but can be in the region of a minimum of 13 hours and maximum 78 hours of recorded practice. In addition the prescribing qualification  /authority of independent and supplementary prescribing (V300) will be recorded with the NMC on successful completion of the course.
