Nurses participating at the Kids First Conference

The purpose of the Center for Continuing Professional Education is to foster lifelong learning that enhances competence in professional practice and self-growth, allowing nurses to function more effectively in their professional roles and to contribute to the health and welfare of the public by the dissemination of knowledge. The center strives to facilitate interprofessional exploration of new ideas, trends and developments, coupled with exposure to new research-based educational activities critical for the development and maintenance of professional nursing practice.

Accreditation: The University of Texas at Austin School of Nursing is approved as a provider of nursing continuing professional development by Texas Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
