CPD for Nurses

Nurses are required to reach a minimum of 35 credits in CPD modules relevant to their practice every three years. It is also a requirement to document learning activity in a personal professional profile.

Continuing professional development in nursing is key to ensuring your skills and knowledge are kept up to date. All of our CPD for nurses are written and maintained by expert authors so you can be sure that they are current and up to date.
