Upon registering for the workshop, nurses take a self-assessment (online survey) to identify their current knowledge, and become aware of any areas for improvement. From this, we link nurses to key APNA online learning to complete.
APNA Online Learning
An online learning bundle of approximately 60 CPD hours is provided to nurses by APNA. This is accessible from when nurses register for a workshop, and access is available for one year. We encourage nurses to use their self-assessment as a guide through the foundational, intermediate and advanced stages of their personalised learning journey. Nurses are not required or expected to complete all of the learning activities. Click here to download a list of available modules.
Community of Practice
A private messaging platform where program participants can discuss, engage and consult with their peers. APNA provides tips and resources to the group, as well as encouraging and facilitating discussion.
As part of the program APNA has developed a series of webinars.
This will include one complimentary call for non-members and ongoing support to members, through the APNA Nurse Support Line – a service to assist nurses with any queries. APNA may also make contact to check how nurses have been implementing learnings from this program.
