theme was "Aspire to Imagine," very appropriate as the conference was at Disney!
Professional development is defined by ANPD as "the continuous, active participation in activities that assist in developing and maintaining competence, enhance professional practice, and support achievement of professional goals" (p 64).
Nursing professional development is a specialty practice recognized by ANA, having its own scope and standards of practice developed by ANPD and approved by ANA, and offering its own certification through the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Certification.
"The rating reflects ANPD
's relatively favourable product attractiveness and relatively conservative financial leverage and strong cash flow coverage.
Identify ways to get involved: Become an ANPD
member, achieve certification, complete a profile on ANPD
website, publish, participate in research, create a poster highlighting evidencebased practice/performance improvement, share resources, network with other professionals.

I was fortunate enough to attend the Association for Nursing Professional Development (ANPD
