CPD ACCREDITATION FOR REGISTERED NURSES
FREE ONLINE COURSE
CPD Accreditation for Registered Nurses
|Duration||CPD Accredited||Cost||End Date|
|Twenty (20) hours||Yes||Free|
Each year all registered nurses are asked to undertake education based activity that relates to their profession. This is known as continuous professional development (CPD) and it can take several forms including attending conferences, lectures and work-related events, reading medical journals, research papers and other relevant materials and as well as internet based training which is becoming more and more popular. You are expected to show evidence that you’ve completed 20 CPD points each year and the due date is always the end of May. Each CPD point is essentially one hour of learning or training activity.
Our team has compiled an interesting mix of content that has been researched and written by medical professional (including other registered nurses) and is available for you to access 24/7 from any web-enabled device. The online modules we currently have available equate to over 30 hours of learning which well and truly covers your annual requirement. The beauty of the Care Youni platform is that we also track and manage your CPD records so there is always an accurate version of your CPD accreditation if anyone ever asks to see it. Best of all, the content is entirely free of charge! We are always updating the content and intend to have over 50 modules available by the end of 2017.
All we ask is that you like our Facebook page and, if you have a LinkedIn profile, we’d also be very pleased if you’d follow our company page on LinkedIn as well. Please click on the links below. Many thanks from the team at Peopleplan – the creators of Care Youni.
As the name suggests, the modules in this section are centred on topics that are most relevant on those who predominantly care for the aged. Typically, these modules would be completed by those working with the elderly however, the content will be of interest to other care professionals as well. Subject material covered included dementia, palliative care and dealing with older people from different cultures.
As with some of the content in the Residential Care section, some of this material is also relevant to those who do not work exclusively in a home care environment. The subject material in the modules is quite diverse and includes infection control, handling hazardous materials and elder abuse.
In this section you’ll find eight modules that cover activities which are central to almost every nursing role, no matter the environment in which you normally work. These included subjects such as Medication Management, Enablement & Independence and the latest advice on administering CPR. Most of these units can be completed in around an hour and are equate to one CPD point each.
