Taught by experienced practitioners and lecturers at our state-of-the-art London campus, this course will build on your existing knowledge base and physical assessment skills to further enhance autonomous practice.
Through a combination of lectures, seminars and practice-based learning you will explore a wide range of key factors associated with non-medical prescribing, including the legal, cognitive, emotional and physical differences between infants and adults, with opportunities to reflect on your own practice and the ways in which you can develop your role. You will also be encouraged to critically analyse the literature surrounding supplementary prescribing and develop a clinical management plan within legislative requirements.
Armed with these contemporary insights and valuable skills you will not only enhance your practice and career prospects for the future but obtain 45 credits at Level 6 or 7 to put towards a BSc degree, BSc Midwifery (Top Up), MSc Midwifery Studies, MSc Nursing Studies, or MSc Mental Health Studies if you wish.
