Lesotho launches its national CPD program
23rd November was a red-letter day for Lesotho.
The Lesotho Nursing Council hosted the launch of the national continuing professional development (CPD) program for nurses and midwives.
The national CPD program was developed in 2011 with a grant from the African Regulatory Collaborative (ARC). The Lesotho nursing quad, consisting of the Lesotho Nursing Registrar, the Lesotho Chief Nursing Officer, the Lesotho Nurses Association and representatives from nursing and midwifery education providers developed the program in consultation with a broader CPD Advisory Committee and other key stakeholders.
ARC congratulates Lesotho and wishes them well for the implementation of their program.
