About

The Postgraduate Certificate in Nurse - Midwife Prescribing at Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland is the first of its kind in Ireland and offers appropriately qualified nurses and midwives the opportunity to enhance the care they provide to patients, clients and service users through the use of their prescriptive authority.
