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.
It’s here start the new year with our new CPE website!
The ANMF’s Continuing Professional Education (CPE) website has provided quality, affordable online education for over 9 years. We are excited to announce our new and refreshed website is live. The new website has been crafted to reflect what our members told us they need now but also builds upon technology capable of addressing future needs. We will be rolling out further capabilities in the near future.
Immediately you will notice streamlined menus, simple navigation and access to the courses and information you need, any time of day. There is a whole host of smaller but impactful changes, all to make your experience on the ANMF CPE better for you.
If you have used the ANMF CPE in the past do not worry all of your records are available on the new website. Simply log in using the email address you registered with on the old site as your username. If your old password no longer works please, reset your password using the link on the log in page.
Some of you may have noticed that the site experienced an extended downtime while we migrated to our new website. Unfortunately this downtime was unavoidable and completely unplanned. The good news is that everything on the website should be working properly now for our individual users. If you are still experiencing any issues, please let us know and we will look into them ASAP.
We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience the downtime caused. Our top priority has always been to make sure the site stays up and loads as quickly as possible, so it was disappointing to us to have experienced downtime like we did. We will do our best to ensure that such downtime happens as rarely as possible. So sorry again for the inconvenience and we really hope you enjoy the new website.
