Upon successful completion the university will award 15 credits at academic Level 6 and students will be able to apply to record their qualification of a V150 Prescriber with the NMC.
What's covered in the course?
The course prepares you to undertake the dynamic role of a V150 prescriber to meet the needs of clients/patients and carers with whom you work. The course is a means for synthesising and examining your professional knowledge, skills, analysis and theoretical frameworks of prescribing. You are required to reflect systematically on their learning using a reflective learning work book to evaluate and apply your knowledge and skills to achieve the assessments of the programme.
