    Nurses on registration are expected to have sufficient knowledge and
    skills in medicine management to practice safely and competently.
    This article reports on research involving midwifery and nursing
    students, who were asked to complete a questionnaire related to
    their experiences of medicines-related training and education, and
    how it prepared them for practice. The results showed an overall
    satisfaction with the pre-registration delivery, but differences
    emerged in the perceived efficacy of different educational strategies.
    Clinically‑based and simulated aspects of the programme delivery
    were highly rated, with theoretical delivery scoring poorly in
    contrast. A stepped approach is suggested, with medicine course
    delivery needing to be strongly highlighted as a lead up to safe and
    competent nursing interventions when administering medication
    and all other related interventions. A grant from the innovation fund
    at the University of Huddersfield funded an evaluation of students’
    experiences of medicines management education and training using
    a self‑administered questionnaire.
