Cover image for lecture: Protecting Your Nursing Qualifications - Recency of Practice

Lecture Overview

"How does a nurse who has been employed for a long time in non-nurse activities (e.g. medical secretary, drug company representative, beauty therapist) end up no longer sufficiently competent to remain registered as an enrolled or registered nurse? This session uses case scenarios to highlight the importance of CPD and explains the term 'recency of practice' in the nursing and midwifery context."

Reinforced what I already knew as am in the process of trying to get full registration after being out of practice for a period of time.
