Which programme is right for me?
This information is for the STANDARD PROGRAMME for community pharmacists, nurses, midwives, physiotherapists, podiatrists, radiographers and dietitians. If you are a hospital, mental health, community trust or CCG pharmacist, please go to our page on the Clinically Enhanced Pharmacist Independent Prescribing Programme. GP Pharmacists may apply for either programme on a self-funded basis.
We also run a 40-credit module as part of the University of Greenwich MSc Advanced Clinical Practice. If you are part of this Greenwich programme and have selected the Prescribing module then you do also need to complete our Prescribing Application form. Select this link to the Nurses, Midwives and Specialist Community Public Health Nursing (SCPHN) application form to complete this part of the process.
The Independent and Supplementary Prescribing programme from University of Kent is delivered by distance learning with a total of nine study days at the University, plus 12 days clinical practice, overseen by a Practice Supervisor (nurses and midwives only)/designated medical practitioner (DMP).
