About the Certification Preparation Course:
This hands-on, two-day course is intended to increase your nursing professional development knowledge and help you prepare for the NPD certification exam offered by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). The curriculum offers 16 contact hours and covers the major domains of practice found in the board certification exam: Educational Process Standards; Leadership; Ethical, Legal and Regulatory Standards; Evidence-based Practice and Research; Technology; and Program/Project Management and Process Improvement. You’ll also have an opportunity to take practice exams, with a test provided before and after the course to test your knowledge.
