Students must complete eight days of structured learning, teaching and assessment using blended learning (face to face contact and VLE / e-learning approaches) with a greater proportion (or all) learning and teaching delivered as distance learning. Students will complete Work-Based Learning consisting of 10 days equivalent (65 hours) in the student’s future clinical practice areas as a prescriber. As a Nurse or Midwife Community Nurse Prescriber (V150) student, you are encouraged to integrate your existing and developing professional knowledge within your current clinical practice environment.
The programme to prepare to prescribe as a Nurse or Midwife Community Nurse Prescriber (V150) is offered as stand-alone module but may also be used to contribute to an undergraduate award. For example, students could combine successful completion of the University Award Community Nurse 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.
