Professional development and CPD courses

We provide an engaging, modern and flexible approach to continuing professional development and career enhancement for health care professionals.

Our short and career boosting programs have been developed by clinical experts in partnership with academics in each specialised area. This is to ensure that our courses are up to date, relevant and engaging.

Our courses:

  • Are available to all health professionals, not just nurses and midwives
  • Will help you meet your CPD requirements as required by AHPRA
  • Promote individual professional development goals
  • Result in high quality evidence based health care delivery

Some courses may be used as credit toward our postgraduate nursing programs.

Our career enhancing courses are offered via multiple study options including online, face to face and blended approaches to meet your needs.

If your organisation needs to fill gaps in its nursing and midwifery education, contact us to discuss how we can help and tailor future courses to your needs.
