UofL Health celebrates Nursing Professional Development Week
Every year in September, nursing professional development practitioners (NPD) around the world celebrate Nursing Professional Development Week. Especially in critical times, the education and support NPD practitioners provide to frontline workers is crucial.
UofL Health NPD practitioners provide staff with quality education throughout all stages of their careers and ensure that our organization is recognized for quality, evidence-based practice, and patient safety. Nursing professional development practitioners at UofL Health provide programs such as:
- Orientation and transition to practice programs
- Competency assessment
- Continuing education contact hours
- Education on use of new equipment, policies and procedures
- Coordination of student affiliations
If you see an educator, please take a moment to thank them for all that they do and wish them a happy NPD week!
