This article focuses on the non-medical prescribing (NMP) module for community prescribers in a nurse education context. The module mainly attracts registered nurses (RNs) from community settings (such as health visiting, school nursing, district nursing and practice nursing), and is provided in higher education institutions (HEIs) as part of a specialist programme or a continuing workforce development module. The article discusses changes to the way the module was taught that can enhance student learning within the NMP module and facilitate wider success and confidence among community nurse prescribers. The move from Nursing and Midwifery Council standards for prescribing to a single competency framework from the Royal Pharmaceutical Society (RPS) has encouraged academics to revisit teaching strategies and consider an approach that offers wider student participation in learning. The use of technology-enhanced learning (TEL) in HEIs is part of national recommendations to improve the student experience and increase success.
