Cizik School of Nursing at UTHealth Houston has launched new self-paced, online nursing continuing professional development (CPD) courses to help registered nurses keep up to date with evidence-based practices and meet ongoing certification requirements.
“Our CPD courses address a range of issues that nurses face every day and are designed to help them keep informed about the latest developments in health care technology and practice,” said Associate Dean for Faculty Development Jessica Coviello, DNP, RN, ANP-BC.
