Assessment

There are two components of assessment:

Component A
Assessment of Professional Competencies by an approved qualified practitioner using the single competency framework for all prescribers (NPC, 2012), which meets the NMC Standards.

Component B
The Prescribing portfolio provides all the evidence required to demonstrate that students have achieved the required standard in all of the elements required by the NMC to register as a community prescriber.

The portfolio is required to contain all of the following:

  • A statement from your registered prescribing supervisor confirming your attendance, the achievement of practice competencies and a final report. You must include your learning contract and action plans.
  • A certificate confirming that a Numeracy Test, set and marked by a member of the academic has been passed at 100%.
  • Evidence of the minimum 80% pass mark for the Pharmacology MCQ and Short Answer Question exam. The written examination will consist of a total of twenty, short answer and multi-choice questions (MCQs) to test pharmacological knowledge and its application to practice. This is a 1.5 hour unseen examination.
  • A presentation to demonstrate safe and appropriate prescribing decisions. This must include one accurately written prescription demonstrating calculations and a reference list. More information will be given during the face-to-face sessions.
  • Directed Learning Activities assessed by the Prescribing Mentor in practice completed throughout the programme.

Both Components A and B have a formative aspect of assessment as students will be able to gain ongoing feedback from Practice Teachers/Mentors during their practice placement and they will be able to obtain formative feedback on other aspects of their prescribing portfolio from academic staff.
