Welcome to RCNA’s Professional Development Services

RCNA offers a range of services to help assist nurses in continuing their professional development through:

    This is a process where organisations having met RCNA’s approved standards and criteria are granted RCNA APEC status and are authorised to endorse their professional development activities on behalf of RCNA for a period of two years.
  • E-learning training packages
