Applications should be made as early as possible. The application process may take some time to complete as it requires the applicant's line manager, Practice Assessor mentor and their employing organisation's Non-Medical Prescribing Lead to confirm their support via the application form designed for this process.
Applicants who work in the North West and are seeking to use NHS funding for their course fees, will also need to complete the CPD-Apply process. Please be aware that funding applications through HEE NW are approved by a line manager and Trust or HEE NW signatory before being made available to the university, so please allow plenty of time for these processes to be completed prior to the course start date.
Applicants are required to demonstrate that they meet all entry criteria prior to programme commencement. Early application enables us to identify entry criteria which have not been met and to advise applicants so that, where possible, delays to the start of the chosen programme can be avoided.
Above all, early application should be made so that students and their clinical practice managers and mentors can commit to full support of the practice and theoretical learning time identified by the Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) as necessary to the preparation for role as a Community Practitioner Nurse Prescriber.
To avoid delays to the start of your chosen programme, we advise that completed applications are submitted at least eight weeks before the start of programme, and identify a final closing date four weeks before the start of the programme.
All applications are subject to the availability of course places.
Please email the completed application form to PGadmissions@cumbria.ac.uk

In the following case study, the author will discuss the issues surrounding a seventy-year-old female with a chronic neuropathic ulcer on the sole of her right foot and the rationale and implications of…show more content…
Furthermore, Stenner and Courtenay (2010) agree that certain drugs can induce both liver and kidney function problems to name but a few and that nurse prescribers must be aware of these potential hazards, as they are accountable for their actions as prescribers.
Red flags highlighted from obtaining the past medical history were neuropathy and raynauds disease because, in this particular scenario, it made the author aware of decreased sensation in the foot due to raynauds and the pain associated with her neuropathy when considering a differential diagnosis such as arterial disease or recurrent osteomyelitis. Culley (2005) agrees that identifying and exploring red flags is crucial and very salient with regard to a robust assessment and subsequent safe prescribing. The British National Formulary (BNF) (2010pg 24 a) indicates that the ageing process can alter the pharmacodynamics and pharmacokinetics which induce a decrease in both hepatic and renal function. These pharmacokinetic changes akin with decreased mobility will hinder how they absorb, distribute, metabolise and excrete drugs, which will result in an increase in the tissue concentration of a drug. Routine bloods were obtained by the nurse, which would confirm both liver and kidney function and what caution if any had to be taken prior to treatment options.
