Elsevier Australia has launched Nursepoint CPD, a comprehensive online platform to help nurses manage mandatory Continuing Professional Development training.
Under National Registration, all Australia’s registered and enrolled nurses are required to complete an annual minimum of 20 hours of active Continuing Professional Development training. Nursepoint CPD makes this a fuss-free exercise by offering a variety of key nursing CPD courses ranging from ‘Indigenous Health Issues in Australia’ to ‘Cardiovascular Assessment and Monitoring’.
All courses are held entirely online, and are available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, so practicing nurses can complete their training in the time and place that suits them best.
Nursepoint CPD is a one-stop-shop for busy nurses, and this is perhaps its most appealing feature. Using the Nursepoint platform, nurses can keep track of all their CPD training – whether completed with Nursepoint or another provider – in one secure online space. There’s no need for hard copy files with Nursepoint CPD – each student has their own personal portfolio, which displays all their current and completed modules.
As the nurse progresses through their CPD training, their online portfolio is updated, ensuring it remains a complete, up-to-date record of all the CPD hours, activities and qualifications they have undertaken. They can download, email or print certificates and complete their reflective journaling online, which is part of every course. Plus, they will soon be able to customise and build their personal CPD learning journey.
Nursepoint CPD stands out from competing sites in several ways, most notably because all course content is sourced directly from Elsevier Australia, the undisputed market leader in the publication and distribution of professional and educational literature. All information is current and evidence-based, so nurses can be sure they are working with trusted and relevant content from one of the world’s most respected sources.
Getting started with Nursepoint CPD training is as simple as visiting the website at nursepoint.com.au. From there, students simply select their course, click on 'Buy now' to enrol in and purchase it, then begin studying.
The Nursepoint CPD site is now live and accepting enrolments at nursepoint.com.au
