Abstract: Let N be a prime near-ring with center Z. The purpose of this paper is to study derivations on N. We show two main results: (1) Let N be 2-torsion-free, and let $ {D_1}$ and $ {D_2}$ be derivations on N such that $ {D_1}{D_2}$ is also a derivation. Then either $ {D_1}$ or $ {D_2}$ is zero if and only if $ [{D_1}(x),{D_2}(y)] = 0$ for all $ x,y \in N$. (2) Let n be an integer $ \geq 1$, N be n!-torsion-free, and D a derivation with $ {D^n}(N) = \{ 0\} $. Then $ D(Z) = \{ 0\} $.
