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 will use a case scenario to highlight the importance of CPD that is underpinned by evidence as a means of protecting your registration and therefore your livelihood.
