Course Format

Make a confident transition from clinician or faculty member into a role in nursing professional development (NPD). In this facilitated online course presented in the NPD framework, you will discover concepts, strategies, and practical tools that work in all clinical disciplines.

This is a six-week asynchronous online course. You do not need to be online at any particular time and must have all the coursework completed by the course end date.

At the completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe multiple techniques for assessing learning needs of staff members
  • Construct an effective plan to meet learning needs of staff members
  • Identify issues and strategies in implementing learning activities in a clinical setting
  • Create a sound approach to evaluating staff learning, considering process, content, and outcome evaluation

You must complete all required assignments by the course end date and the course evaluation to receive a contact hour record. Successful completion of this course counts towards the required continuing education hours in nursing professional development. 

The American Nurses Credentialing Center has a complete list of criteria.
