I have recently completed my NMP, got my official results about 2 -3 weeks ago now. I was just wondering about a number of things:
How long does it take for NMC to record this
How did those who are NMPs start prescribing eg, limited formulary at first and then expanding on this.
Is your formulary "logged" in a formal way with the Trust or a more informal, local way, with your supervisor etc .
I was in discussion with a nurse who is an NMP a few days ago on the issue of transcribing. From my course I understand that I would be ok to do the TTO for a pt from the in-patient script, or to write up current meds on admission. She seems to think this is not the case, but she does work in out-patients so in a different area than myself.
I'm sure this will all become clear when I contact the NMP lead locally but just wanted some thoughts from current NMPs on here.
Many thanks. Jane
