Offering networking and learning opportunities to the nursing professional development (NPD) specialists of the Chicago metropolitan area
"If everyone is moving forward together, then success takes care of itself.”
We are an active group of nursing professional development specialists and healthcare educators from a variety of practice settings throughout Chicago-land. We support direct patient caregivers and their leaders in providing safe and effective patient care. We share a desire to learn from each other and to develop our own professional practices.
At each CANPD meeting, we encourage networking and mentoring, offer educational opportunities of interest to nursing professional development specialists, and hold a brief business meeting. CANPD meetings are scheduled every other month and alternate between suburban and urban member host sites.
Please explore our website, join us at a meeting, and/or contact us by email with questions and comments.
