Group learning is an important continuing professional development (CPD) activity for nurses. It provides an opportunity to confirm or expand areas of knowledge and identify potential new therapies or approaches for practice. It also enables nurses to share practice issues or experiences with peers.

Important information before you begin

Group learning activities approved by CNA must be developed or co-developed by a nursing organization.

CNA defines “nursing organization” as a not-for-profit group of health professionals with a formal governance structure. The organization serves and is accountable to its specialist nurse members and others by providing continuing professional development (CPD), health care, and/or research.

Please visit our website for a full definition or contact CNA to confirm before submitting an application. You can also read our policies for non-nursing organizations.

Additional considerations

  • Accredited group learning activities (including conferences, symposia, seminars, and workshops) are approved for a Maximum of 2 years from the time accreditation has been granted.
  • Accreditation will not be granted retroactively.

Application process

  • Complete this application and submit the supporting documentation.
  • A summary of the review will be e-mailed to the applicant, including the outcome of the assessment of the CPD activity, the number of accredited hours, and the CPD activity accreditation statement that must appear on all accredited CPD activity program materials and certificates of participation.
