NPD Week is the perfect opportunity to express your gratitude to celebrate all the nursing professional development practitioners in your life. We've made sending a virtual high five to your colleagues easy. 



2021 Video Contest: A Day in the Life of an NPD Practitioner

This year, we challenged you and your colleagues to create a short video to show something people might not know about the average day in the life of an NPD practitioner. We've enjoyed watching all of this year's "A Day in the Life of an NPD Practitioner" submissions. They are a true representation of our specialty.

Congratulations to the 2021 video contest winner:
