This Conference is now Closed

Follow the conference on Twitter #NursePrescribingSummit

The 2020 Nurse Prescribing Leadership Summit, which is now in its Fourth year, brings together Nurse Prescribers to understand current issues and the national context, and to debate and discuss key issues and areas they are facing in practice. Chaired by Sam Sherrington, Chair, Association for Prescribers and Head of Year of the Nurse and Midwife 2020, NHS England/NHS Improvement, this CPD certified conference provides a unique opportunity to learn from the experiences of other nurse prescribers and develop your skills as an effective Nurse Prescriber. The programme will focus on developing your skills, competence and confidence in Nurse Prescribing. Through national updates, practical case studies and a choice of interactive workshops the conference aims to support you to improve both prescribing practice and patient care, and provide networking opportunities with nurses who are prescribing in your clinical specialty.

“Patients and the public often believe that nurses and midwives are able to prescribe, and many people do not want to wait to see a medical prescriber... We are consulting on changes to our prescribing standards that would enable nurses and midwives to be able to prescribe much earlier in their careers than they can at the moment. We propose that all nurses and midwives will be ‘prescribing ready’ when they register with us, so they would be able to build on their training and gain prescribing practice experience as soon as they qualify.”


Extended interactive workshops will this year focus on Nurse Prescribing for Pain, and History Taking, Clinical Assessment and Diagnosis. There will also be an extended focus on the important issue of prescribing for Co-Morbidity.

This conference will enable you to:

  • Network with colleagues who are working to deliver effective Nurse Prescribing Practice
  • Learn from outstanding practice in improving patient care through nurse prescribing 
  • Reflect on national developments and learning
  • Improve the way prescribing competence is developed through the  National Prescribing Competence Framework
