The Australian College of Nursing (ACN) has endorsed several of First Aid Academy courses. These are allocated CPD hours to assist nurses in meeting the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia (NMBA) Registration Standard for Continuing Professional Development.
|Course||CPD hours allocated|
|HLTAID009 – Provide cardiopulmonary resuscitation||4 hours|
|HLTAID011 – Prove First Aid||8 hours|
Please inform staff when booking that CPD hours need to be claimed so the appropriate Statement of Attainment can be issued.
ACN Endorsement is a quality assurance process in which continuing professional development (CPD) activities for nurses are assessed and endorsed against a set of quality criteria developed in line with professional nursing and education requirements. CPD activities are then allocated relevant CPD hours to assist nurses in meeting the Nursing and Midwifery Board of Australia’s Registration Standard for Continuing Professional Development.
ACNs Endorsement is valid for two years, or until a significant change is required and more than 10% of the content is changed. First Aid Academy’s ACN endorsement is valid until June 2025.
