What is MCPDP?
MCPDP is Mandatory continuing Professional Development Programme. The programme is a brain child of the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria which was established in March 2010. The inauguration of the state facilitators took place at Conference Centre of the University of Ibadan from 23rd – 24th March 2010 and all the states of the federation were mandated to commence training of Nurses.
The programme was designed for all cadres of nurses and is to be undertaken throughout their professional nursing career. It is a continuous formal learning programme within and outside the practice setting.
The MCPDP was conceived and developed for implementation so that professional nurses can remain relevant and kept abreast with modern trends in the area of practice.
