Our Professional Development Program aims to provide clinically relevant education sessions to support nurses and third year undergraduate students in their continuing professional development.

Speakers for the professional development program are clinical experts in their specialty practice and the sessions are designed to generate and develop the knowledge base that complements daily nursing practice.

In addition to increasing the ability and confidence in practice through the professional development program, participants also have the opportunity to network with professionals from other clinical areas and agencies.
