This module facilitates the student acquisition of the appropriate knowledge, skills and attitudes for safe effective prescribing from the Nurse Prescribing Formulary making them clinically accountable for any action that they take as part of their prescribing role. The benefits of nurse prescribing has been consistently reported in the literature with evidence to show improved patient care and satisfaction, increased access to medicines, reduction in waiting times and delivery of high quality care (Royal College of Nursing 2012). The module has been designed to enable students to achieve the competencies outlined in the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) ?A Competency Framework for all Prescribers? (2016).
