(2017) stated that 97.6% out of 13,562 nurse practitioner prescribed medications on a daily basis

that averaged around 22 prescriptions per day. Without doing a thorough history and physical and proper examination, incorrect medications can be given that affect medication allergies, dosing, and insufficient information on the prescription (Sabatino et al., 2017). Prescribing medication is a huge responsibility for clinicians and ensuring the proper medication, dose, route, timing, and instructions to patients is essential for patient safety and quality of care. Collaborating with the pharmacist when prescribing medication helps reduce adverse reactions and is a strategy that produces positive outcomes (Sabatino et al., 2017). Using a computerized provider order entry system with clinical decision support has also been shown to reduce prescribing errors for pediatric patients (Rinke et al., 2014). This is especially useful in prescribing medication to pediatric patients since the dose is calculated based on their weight. Another important component to prevent prescribing errors is to utilize a reporting system to report errors. Medication Error Reporting and Prevention lets provider know what interventions are not working to prevent errors and helps to highlight areas of improvement (Rinke et al., 2014). Advanced nurse practitioners need to stay educated on prescribing medications and work in collaboration with pharmacists and other healthcare professionals to assure the safety of all patients.
