One of the top priorities of CPCNA is to support its Members in their professional growth. Throughout the year, we will offer educational resources and opportunities based on the Pan-Canadian Palliative Care Competencies for Nurses (to be released in early 2021) and the Hospice and Palliative Care Competencies from CNA.

Attending these events can support hours for certification in Hospice and Palliative Care with CNA, and can also may be eligible  to support your regulatory Continuing Competency activities (check with your local practice regulator).


Upcoming webinars:

Select events are free for Members and at a minimal cost for Non-members. 

Past webinars:

Members of CPCNA can access recordings of previous webinars at any time for free. Recordings remain available for a minimum of90 days. 

We also aim to support nurses seeking initial or renewal of certification in hospice palliative care nursing through the Canadian Nurses Association. These series are in the development phase. More information should be available in the coming months. Stay tuned!
