The School of Nursing realizes nurses have to balance their professional development and licensure requirements with very hectic work schedules. As a result, the School continues to expand its enduring nursing continuing professional development (NCPD) activities.
These self-paced professional development activities are designed to be flexible, so participants can balance activity completion with their schedules. Participants receive a personalized nursing continuing professional development certificate after they successfully complete all the requirements for the specific learning activity taken.
