Let’s face it, completing continuing professional development (CPD) can feel like a chore – yet another task to tick off the list.

This feeling may be related to the barriers you face in finding the time for activities that count as 20 participatory learning hours that involve interactions with other professionals. It doesn’t help that employers are not obliged to give time off for CPD and provision varies.

Let RCNi support your continuing professional development

The good news is that if you’re reading this then you’re already part way to gaining your reflective practice hours – because reviewing or reflecting on our content is something you can put towards revalidation.

There’s plenty we offer that can help you to meet your minimum 35 hours of CPD to demonstrate you’re able to revalidate with the Nursing and Midwifery Council every three years.

With our learning modules and articles – from our peer reviewed CPD articles and interactive quizzes to evidence and practice articles – there is plenty to reflect on to help you demonstrate your understanding for purposes of revalidation. And you can pull it all together in our RCNi portfolio too. In addition, we offer you:

Nursing Live 2024

23 - 24 October 2024, ACC Liverpool

Register for updates about this unique nursing event and make a note in your diary to join us later in the year.

  • Audio and webinars Our fortnightly podcast covers clinical and professional topics that are rich for revalidation purposes. We have a range of free CPD webinars on subjects from wound care and malnutrition to menopause and the nursing workforce
  • Newsletters RCNi Plus subscribers have access to exclusive content delivered in a weekly email from an expert author on a specific topic
  • In-person events RCNi’s flagship Nursing Live event runs for its second year in Liverpool, offering lots of networking opportunities and personal and professional development. Similarly, sessions at our RCNi nursing careers and jobs fairs are CPD-accredited.

We hope to make CPD a bit easier and also, dare I say it, enjoyable. Unfortunately, we can’t take the chore out of those mandatory fire safety courses – or make them CPD-eligible.
