Continuing Professional Education


The Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation has developed best practice on-line continuing professional development (CPD) for all nurses and midwives in Australia.

CPE is one of the ANMF’s solutions for your continuing professional development needs to allow you to fulfil the NMBA’s requirements. Your CPD couldn’t be in better hands than with the ANMF.

ANMF CPD Newsletter April 2015

Registration is definitely on everyone’s mind at the moment including registration requirements for continuing professional development (CPD). We all tend to focus on the CPD hours but there is more to meeting your CPD requirements.

The elements include:

  • Identifying your learning needs and making a plan
  • Reflecting on how the CPD will improve your  practice
  • Evidence of your CPD activities, hours, outcomes and reflections
  • Ensuring that the CPD is directly related to your area of practice.

The ANMF provides a diverse range of endorsed online CPD activities and the resources to meet your CPD requirements.
