Pilot Study Information: Data from the first 10 participants in 16 of the 28 modules will be used as a pilot study to determine the number of nursing continuing professional development contact hours to be awarded. Please track the time required to complete each module and be prepared to document it in the evaluation.

As a pilot study participant, upon completion of each of the 16 modules, you will not receive a certificate that indicates the number of contact hours awarded. When the pilot study concludes (when 10 individuals complete each module), a certificate will be emailed to you that indicates the number of contact hours awarded.

Please address any questions concerning the pilot study to Dr. Mary Harper at mharper@anpd.org.
