Recredentialing success: Nik Nikolić

Congratulations to Nik Nikolić who successfully recredentialed with the College recently.

Nik Nikolić is Lead Pharmacist for the Early Intervention in Psychosis Service and an Independent Prescriber & Advanced Clinical Practitioner at the Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust.

Nik is passionate about caring for his clients and research. The assessor for his portfolio congratulated him on his excellent submission, and on his advanced clinical practitioner qualification.

When asked to comment on what he finds rewarding his role he said:

“The most rewarding thing about working as a pharmacist in Early Intervention in Psychosis is working with clients! Learning about their experiences, their values, and how to help them achieve their recovery goals. I learn something new every day from my clients and the teams I work in, but at the top of the list is the meaning of recovery, and how important it is to be mindful what we as clinicians think recovery is, and what it actually means for our clients.”

Nik was also invited to say what being credentialed by the College means to him. He commented:

“Recognition by peers that I am practising at an advanced level. This in turn provides assurance to Trusts and clients and colleagues. Being recognised for my efforts is a strong indication that I am striving to improve things. As not many people are credentialed in comparison to how many could potentially be, one could say this in fact means I am passionate enough to go above and beyond. That this is a reflection of my dedication and enthusiasm in addition to already enhanced unique set of skills.”

Our credentialed members are required to go through recredentialing every five years. Credentialed members are full members of the College and can carry the post-nominals MCMHP.
