CPD4Nurses assists nurses in achieving their professional development requirements by providing affordable, convenient and professionally written learning activities. We offer straightforward, insightful articles on topics that support fundamental practice.

Each learning activity consists of an article followed by a review that includes application to practice. Reflection questions are provided to meet the New Zealand Nursing Council's requirement that professional development activities are considered in relation to the individual nurse's practice. On completion of the learning activity you are emailed a printable (pdf) certificate and a copy of your answers to the reflective questions for inclusion in your portfolio.

CPD4Nurses is the brainchild of Georgina Casey, a New Zealand Registered Nurse who, when she was raising a young family, struggled to achieve the Nursing Council's requirement of 60 hours professional development over three years. As well as being an experienced nurse, Georgina has an undergraduate degree in anatomy and physiology from the University of Otago, and a Post-graduate Diploma in Sciences, specialising in wound healing. Further qualifications include a Master of Philosophy (Nursing) from Massey University and tertiary teaching qualifications.

Georgina has taught anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology and pharmacology to nurses, midwives and other health professionals at Otago Polytechnic and AUT University. She regularly writes and reviews articles for the Nursing Standard in the United Kingdom.

If you wish to provide feedback about the site, learning activities or have suggestions for further CPD topics, please feel free to contact Georgina.
