Continuing professional development (CPD)


Australian Nursing and Midwifery Federation

Nurses and midwives attending the 15th National Rural Health Conference can count their hours of attendance towards their mandatory annual Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) requirement of 20 CPD hours. The NMBA considers one hour of active learning equals one hour of CPD (the measurement of CPD is no longer points). Hours completed can be added to your Professional Development Portfolio. ANMF members (includes NSWNMA and QNMU members) in all states and territories are encouraged to attend this important conference event.  Website:
