Important Information on Continuing Competence Program (CCP) Audit for 2023
This notice is to inform you that there will be no Continuing Competence Program (CCP) audit for nurses for 2023. We have decided to forgo this year's audit as we all continue to balance ongoing priorities in the face of the currently challenging and rapidly evolving health care system.
While there will not be an audit in 2023, all nurses should participate in CCP. This includes conducting a self assessment, developing a professional growth plan with a reflective evaluation of the impact the learning plan has had on your practice. To access the CCP Guide, tools and resources, click here.
For more information, please reach out to a Practice Consultant by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
