For example, students could combine successful completion of the University Award Independent/Supplementary Prescribing for Nurses and Midwives (V300) with other modules towards a full degree (120 credits), for example the BSc (Hons) Practice Development or BSc (Hons) Community Specialist Practitioner District Nursing.
