NMP Course Info
Preparing for your Non-Medical Prescribing course
Eligibility & How to Apply

Where can I do an NMP course?

You can choose from a number of Universities to study NMP.
Some courses require full attendance at university (26 days) plus the minimum 12 supervised practice days. However, many HEIs now provide the opportunity to study by distance learning, which includes some attendance (the number of days will vary depending on the HEI), workbooks and electronic learning. Additional private study is required in addition (as for all programmes of study).
It is important to identify before submitting your application, how you will manage to complete the required attendance, practice time and private study within the course duration.
It is also important to check before submitting your application your universities requirements for your Supervisor/Assessor of your learning in practice.
