Mentors for Non medical prescribing Students


Non medical prescribing students arrange their own mentor in practice. The mentor is known as a Designated medical practitioner (DMP) . The DMP must be a medical practitioner (i.e a doctor). The guidelines for doctors able to take on the role are detailed in the NMC standards of proficiency for nurse and midwife prescribers and the DMP guide.
