The course is not only beneficial for NPD practitioners preparing for the certification exam, but is also a great introduction to nursing professional development for those new to the specialty. In addition, it enables continuing professional development (CPD) professionals to successfully complete portions of the certified healthcare CPD (CHCP) examination. 

Certification Preparation Course Cancellation Policy: In the instance that ANPD must cancel the in-person NPD certification preparation course, you will be given the option to transfer your registration to a live online 4-day course, or the asynchronous course.  In this instance ANPD staff will directly follow up with you on next steps.
