The RCNi CPD Programme for Nurses is designed to help nurses enhance their skills, stay up to date with best practice and meet professional development requirements. It consists of a collection of peer-reviewed online courses from RCNi Learning, RCNi’s e-learning platform for UK nurses, that have been selected for their relevance and adapted to meet the needs of the Indian nursing workforce.

The new interactive education resource launches with 30 CPD courses, covering topics such as patient safety, infection prevention, compliance and paediatric nursing, with 30 more due for release in the coming months. The courses make full use of case studies, engaging imagery and illustrations, tests with rationales for correct and incorrect answers, and time-out exercises to create a rich learning environment, says RCNi.

The RCNi CPD Programme for Nurses is accredited by the Royal College of Nursing to ensure it meets the highest standards of excellence and promotes best practice and is available to individual nurses and healthcare organisations looking to support the development of their staff and improve patient outcomes.

“We are delighted to be launching the RCNi CPD Programme for Nurses in India in partnership with iPC Health,” said Phil Smithers, Commercial Director at RCNi. “RCNi's vision is to be a lifelong learning partner for the nursing community around the world and this is an important step towards achieving this. Partnering with iPC Health not only enables us to leverage their expertise in technology, but also their invaluable experience in the Indian healthcare industry to ensure our evidence-based e-learning content meets the needs of the Indian nurses.”

Impelsys CEO and founder, Sameer Shariff said, "We are excited to partner with RCNi in this important initiative to provide best practice for continuing professional education for all nurses to help in their career growth. We see this launch as an extension of our efforts in that direction."
