Compulsory Professional Development (CPD) is underpinned by the National Competency Standards of the Registered Nurse.
As stated by the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (www.nursingandmidwiferyboard.com.au) :
“RN practice, as a professional endeavour, requires continuous thinking and analysis in the context of thoughtful development and maintenance of constructive relationships. To engage in this work, RNs need to continue to develop professionally and maintain their capability for professional practice. RNs determine, coordinate and provide safe, quality nursing. This practice includes comprehensive assessment, development of a plan, implementation and evaluation of outcomes. As part of practice, RNs are responsible and accountable for supervision and the delegation of nursing activity to enrolled nurses (ENs) and others”.
