Association for Prescribers

about_usFor ten years, the Association for Nurse Prescribing (ANP) has been a leading voice campaigning for, and promoting, the role of nurse prescribing. The association,
whose Patron is Baroness Julia Cumberlege, CBE, and President Dr June Crown, CBE, achieved its objectives in May 2006, when legislation was changed enabling appropriately qualified nurses to prescribe from the full British National Formulary within their area of competence.

The role of the ANP has evolved to provide nurses with support and education in order that they feel confident in their role. The ANP recognises that the patient is at the heart of every nurse’s career and that nurses need to continue improving their standards of care, knowledge and proficiency.

Association for Nurse Prescribing:

  • Provides a community for nurse prescribers
  • Promotes education, training and continued professional development for all non-medical prescribers across the United Kingdom
  • Provides a unifying voice for the membership to influence government bodies and nursing organisations on future
    developments in prescribing
  • Allows networking of nurses and other non-medical prescribers
  • Supports research into non-medical prescribing
  • Shares good practice
  • Offers advice and support to prescribers, higher education institutions and government bodies
