You may want to think about taking the modules that are most relevant to the PDP objectives that you agreed with your appraiser at your most recent appraisal.
Alternatively, you can see the latest clinical modules displayed on the home page, or you can search for a particular module by topic or keyword. Or you may want to look at the modules in a particular clinical area by clicking on the relevant topic in the ‘CPD modules’ page.
Some of the modules are interactive and involve you working through typical patient scenarios, making management decisions and building your knowledge as you go. In these modules, you will complete a set of multiple-choice questions (MCQs) before you start and again at the end. This will help you to gauge how your knowledge has improved.
Others involve reading articles that review all the latest evidence on the topic in question and then taking a CPD assessment that consists of answering MCQs. You will be given feedback on correct and incorrect answers together with a brief summary of the evidence base behind the correct answer. In many cases, the articles on which these modules are based have been published in Nursing in Practice or Pulse magazine.
Some modules include video links and pictures.
Whichever type of module format you choose, you will be asked to record your learning points after completing your post-module MCQs and these will be included in your module certificate. This is necessary to enable you to claim CPD credits in line with the guidance.
Each module has a suggested number of CPD hours -; the modules vary from a suggested 0.5 hours to a suggested 3 hours. This is an estimate of the maximum time it will take to complete the module, explore the associated references and reflect on your learning as you go. But this suggested number of hours is just intended as a guide – once you have completed the module you will be asked how many CPD credits you wish to claim (based on the principle that one CPD credit = one hour’s learning). This is the number of credits that will appear on your module certificate.
You don’t have to complete the whole module in one sitting. You can break off at any point mid-module and your progress will be automatically. You can pick up again where you left off by entering the same module or by going on your ‘CPD dashboard’ and clicking on the module.
The latest modules are displayed on the eLearning tab or you can browse all webinars, on-demand videos and modules. New modules are marked ‘New’.
Your certificate is automatically generated and stored in your CPD log in your Dashboard. You can print the certificate off at any time, or save it to your computer by clicking the download icon next to the relevant module.
You can also download your certificate if you go into the module and scroll to the bottom.
You don’t need to do anything, all modules that you take on will automatically be saved in your CPD log -; whether you have completed them or not. You can return to your CPD log at any time to see an overview of your completed modules and any modules in progress, to print your certificates.
Your Nursing in Practice 365 CPD log automatically records all your learning activity on the site and allows you to link it to the specific learning objectives you have set for yourself or that you agreed with your appraiser at your last appraisal.
The ‘Dashboard’ tab automatically stores details of all your completed eLearning modules and wedinars/on-demand videos – together with date completed, learning points recorded, number of credits claimed.
Your CPD log also automatically stores:
You can also use your CPD log to record details of any reading/learning you have done elsewhere that you want to include in your CPD record. Simply click on ‘log CPD’ under ‘CPD Points gathered from external activities’ in the ‘CPD Points’ section of your log.
