Festival Accreditation

Horatio and MAPN are happy to announce that the 4th European Festival of Psychiatric Nursing will be an accredited event for all delegates. The Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland will accredit the event with those attending the full festival receiving between 15 -18 Continuing Nursing and Midwifery Educational units. Delegates attending single days will receive units according to the number of hours they attend – one input hour usually equates to one unit. The actual number of units offered for the festival will be calculated closer to the event itself.

So, for those of you needing to attend an event that offers accreditation, here is a great opportunity to come to something special and get your CNME points.
