APEC status

What is the RCNA APEC program?

APEC is an RCNA model of endorsement for educational events and activities where the provider is given status or authorised, on behalf of RCNA, to endorse their own activities for a period of two years.  

What are the benefits of becoming an APEC member organisation?

APEC status is:
  • particularly beneficial and economical to organisations which run more than two educational activities per year
  • more cost efficient.
The APEC endorsement process demonstrates, to the nursing profession, that:
  • a provider of a professional development activity or educational tool has undergone scrutiny by RCNA
  • an educational activity/event or tool meets the standards set by RCNA
  • an endorsed event will add value to a nurse’s continuing professional development
  • an endorsed event will provide RCNA continuing nurse education (CNE) points for registered nurses.

What are the benefits to the APEC organisation representative?

APEC organisations can:
  • endorse their own educational activities/events on behalf of RCNA
  • allocate RCNA CNE points to all their activities during their two year APEC status
  • receive free advertising of their activities on RCNA's calendar of events
  • have full use of RCNA's logo on promotional material
  • monthly APEC e-bulletins
  • access to the APEC member only page.
