This unique and highly popular book provides an essential and authoritative guide to the principles and practice of nurse prescribing. The second edition has been thoroughly revised and updated in response to the recent developments that have secured an expansion of prescribing authority in terms of the nurses who may prescribe and the products that may be prescribed.

Retaining the concise format and clear writing style of the first edition, the text explores a wide range of topics related to current practice and provides access to a variety of perspectives on nurse prescribing. The contributors draw on a wealth of experience to provide a critical exploration of the development and implications of nurse prescribing. Topics covered include:


assessment and evaluation




New for this edition are separate chapters covering legal issues and ethical principles, as well as a whole chapter of case study scenarios that give the reader real-life examples of nurse prescribing in practice.

Whether you are already a nurse prescriber, about to become one, or a health care professional interested in prescribing issues or the developing and expanding role of the nurse, this book is for you.
