What is the continuing competence program and do I need to participate?
Nurses learn every day and we are continually improving our knowledge and practice.
The Continuing Competence Program (CCP) is a requirement for all RNs to renew their practice permit. This program will enable you to develop a specific learning plan throughout the year to help you stay current and grow in your knowledge.
If you would like to discuss the CCP, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 780.451.0043 / 1.800.252.9392 and ask to speak to a Competence and Learning Consultant.
