Consultation on RNPCH Medicines List

The Nursing Council is currently consulting on possible changes to the medicine list for Registered Nurse Prescribers in Community Health (RNPCH). As well as medication changes, this also involves some possible changes to the language used in the Council’s RNPCH documentation to describe patient, client, and consumer groups.

These changes have been recommended to the Council by the RNPCH Operational Group. We are now seeking views from the profession, sector, and stakeholders on the proposals put forward by the group. As well as the perspectives of health practitioners and service managers, we would value hearing the views of health and disability support service consumers, patients, clients, and advocates. 

Detail of the recommendations, including a consultation document outlining their rationale, can be found on the consultation page.
