This was the second year CHI Franciscan Health hosted the ANPD cert prep course and 40 people from across the state attended. Greg Durkin facilitated the conference and brought his unique sense of humor and passion to the event.
The purpose of certification is to demonstrate competence in a specialty. According to Mary Harper in her blog NPD practitioners must be able to demonstrate how we contribute to the organization’s goals related to patient safety and quality, staff satisfaction and retention, and financial stability. NPD practitioners who are not certified in the specialty may lack the knowledge and skill to measure educational outcomes in a meaningful way.
Consider attending a certification prep course if you are planning to sit for the exam, if you are new to role of an educator/NPD practioner, or if you just need to brush up on your practice according to the ANPD Scope and standards for practice
