The PNA believe that life-long learning and continuing professional development (CPD) is a valued component of nurses' professional practice and supports the effectiveness of the nursing contribution through the development and promotion of knowledge. We strongly believe that knowledgeable nurses strengthen the quality of safe clinical practice and directly enhance service user experience and transform evidence into action. The PNA, uniquely positioned as both a professional body and trade union, aims to safeguard and enrich member's experience.

In enhancing our benefits to you, our members, we have completed a Needs Analysis of your CPD needs and sincere thanks to all of you- across the country- who participated in both the survey and the focus groups.

The analysis identified your priority areas and three Masterclasses were delivered in the following areas- Quality Clinical Learning Environment, Documentation and Care Planning and Medication Management.

All programmes will be delivered in the RCSI, St Stephen's Green, Dublin 2. Time: 9:30 - 16:30

A minimum number of 8 participants required for programme delivery. Programme costs: €70 per person

  • Accredited by the Nursing & Midwifery Board of Ireland (NMBI)

  • Developed in collaboration with and facilitated by practising clinical and/or subject matter experts

The successful participant who completes this course will understand what assertiveness is, and how to differentiate this from aggression. The participant will comprehend the necessity of assertiveness as a life skill, and its impact on self-esteem, self-confidence and self-efficacy. These enable the person to feel more in control of their lives – to be active participants in life, rather than just passive victims of ‘stuff that happens’ – a major part of mental health. The programme concludes with learning the best approach to dealing with conflict.
