The Continuing Competence Program (CCP) is a crucial part of a nurse’s professional responsibility to provide the highest standards of patient care and safety, and to provide that care based on best practices and current research.
The Health Professions Act (HPA) requires all regulated health professions to establish continuing competence programs that enable members to maintain their competence and enhance the provision of safe and competent service to the public.
To meet the CCP requirements and be eligible for a practice permit, CARNA members must complete their MyCCP record.
This involves three phases: Practice Reflection, Continuing Professional Development, and Collecting Feedback.
To begin each part, open MyCCP from MyCARNA.
