Introducing ANPD Lippincott Webinars for 2015

Wolters Kluwer Health, a leading global provider of information and point-of-care solutions for the healthcare industry, and the Association for Nursing Professional Development (ANPD), are creating and jointly providing a webinar series geared toward nursing professional development (NPD) specialists.

Scheduled to kick off in early 2015, this new series of webinars will provide both thought leadership and insightful teaching strategies for NPD specialists.  The live webinars, which are currently being planned by the ANPD Education Committee, offer continuing nursing education (CNE) contact hours and will be offered free of charge to all ANPD members. Recordings of the webinars will be included in Lippincott Professional Development, a leading online professional development solution from Wolters Kluwer.

“ANPD strives to be the thought leader and resource for nursing professional development. Our partnership with Wolters Kluwer is helping move us toward that vision,” said Dr. Joan Warren, President for the Association for Nursing Professional Development.
