What is Continuous Professional Development?
Continuous professional development is often called CPD for short. Dental Nurses must complete at least 150 hours of CPD every 5 years to ensure they fulfill the terms of your GDC registration. Find out how it works, how many hours are required and what you need to do to ensure your GDC registration stays secure.
Once you have attained that ever-important GDC number, you must keep up with your CPD (continuous professional development). If you’re a trainee dental nurse you may still find these useful even if you can’t collect CPD hours yet.
