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.
