As a senior lecturer on Non Medical Prescribing and Advanced Non Medical Prescribing courses for over 7 years, I would highly recommend this book and I have asked for it to be put on our essential reading list for our courses as I am aware that students cannot get enough practice at these type of questions.

It is an excellent resource for students undertaking the V300 course as it allows them to work through frequently asked exam questions. There are different formats to ensure that the book is interesting and the answers are detailed and give clear rationale. I would also suggest that for qualified prescribers it is a useful update to their prescribing skills in the fast-changing area of practice.

All of the key topics are included in the book;

History of Prescribing - Independent and Supplementary
Drug development
Drug Licensing and Handling
Getting to know your BNF
Legal and ethical issues
Pharmacological principles
Drug Calculations
Consultation Skills and Clinical Decision making
Legal and ethical issues
Therapeutic decision making and principles of safe prescribing
Prescribing errors
Adverse Drug Reactions
Cultural and Religious Issues
Concordance

with completely up to date information (including the changes in CD prescribing) and related well (when required) to the generic competency framework and guidelines from the National Prescribing Centre. The format of the book is straightforward and concise with clear discussion, linked well to the evidence.

Although this has 'Nurses' in the title, this book is suitable for ALL prescribing students - including pharmacists and allied health professionals, as the issues tested and discussed within the book are the same for them too.

A great book that will prepare students thoroughly for their NMP exams.

AN ESSENTIAL TEXT!

This is a great book for anyone undertaking the course. It is full of questions covering each aspect of the syllabus and gives a great insight into possible exam questions. This is essential reading when preparing for the course and for keeping beside your BNF!!!! I would thoroughly recommend to all prospective non medical prescribers

A must for all nurses or pharmacists undertaking non medical prescribing courses. Only discovered this book the week before final exams and wish I had known about it sooner. A great refresher and revision aid which certainly helped with exam preparation.

This is a great book to test yourself before the exam. The format is easy to use and chapters are in bite sizes.
The tests highlight bits you need to work on further and give confidence on those areas you are sure about.
Excellent value.

Very informative. I didn't realise how much I knew or didn't known until I brought this book. Very useful. A good buy for all health professionals.

The NMP course can be particularly stressful, this book was really useful when preparing for the end examination, and I would recommend it to all who are undertaking a course of study in prescribing. The MCQs within the book were a really useful revision aid.

Doing the NMIP course at the moment so reading this regularly to remind me of things!
So much to cover in the course though, I don't think any book will ever totally be all encompassing.....
