Lecture Overview

How does a nurse who has been employed for a long time in non-nurse activities (e.g. medical secretary, drug company representative, beauty therapist) end up no longer sufficiently competent to remain registered as an enrolled or registered nurse? This session will use a case scenario to highlight the importance of CPD that is underpinned by evidence as a means of protecting your registration and therefore your livelihood.

I struggled to see how the video actually related to what the overview says it will look at. I still learnt lots about CPD requirements and feel more confident in forward planning and selecting my CPD

I appreciated being able to access this information online. I found the presenter very easy to listen to. I also appreciated that she repeated questions asked by those that were attending her presentation prior to answering it. Thank you.

Very well done, maybe some ideas of where to go for Cpd would be good, it is difficult to get one's head around at first
