The Nursing Council of Kenya has launched the Continuous Professional Development (CPD) Guidelines for practicing nurses, the Kenya Registered Nursing and Midwifery (KRNM) and the Kenya Registered Nursing (KRN) core curricula at a colourful occasion at the Silver Springs Hotel, Nairobi on Wednesday,14th September 2016. These documents have been revised to ensure that nursing and midwifery students acquire and apply knowledge, skills and attitudes which are necessary for effective functioning and healthcare.
The CPD guidelines will enable nurses and midwives to apply continued learning to their roles in the workplace and to cope with changing disease patterns and community expectations. The Council takes this very seriously because in the clinical area, the capacity of nurses and midwives to perform well is directly linked to the continued training and capacitating process in which employers are also co-responsible.
