As part of our commitment to education for members we aim to deliver themed study days relevant to members working in advanced practice. Our constitution means that one of these study days includes a short Annual General Meeting this is a great opportunity for members to influence the direction of the ESPPN (now APPN), members are actively encouraged to attend this meeting.
In the future the education sub-group are wanting to explore using technology to deliver training such as live seminars if you have any experience or comment to make regarding this please get in touch with the current education officer. Similarly we are always keen for members to propose topics/ themes/ speakers which they feel are relevant to them and other members.
