Welcome to the Learning Zone
Here you will find online continuing professional development (CPD) resources relating to nursing care, career development and workplace issues. The resources are relevant to health care assistants, assistant practitioners, student and registered nurses across the range of care settings. Each topic is designed in bite sized sections to provide flexibility for working through them at a time and pace that suits each person.
Over the coming months, the Learning Zone site will be undergoing a major redesign. Some of the older topics will be retired while others will disappear for a while as they get a 'make-over'. In the meantime, continue to visit the Learning Zone as part of your CPD and keep sending us your feedback. We have incorporated many suggestions in the new design and will continue to use your comments to shape and improve this award winning site. You can also contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
