Welcome to the An Bord Altranais on-line Continuing Professional Development/ Continuing Education (CPD) Directory. This Directory is now available through the Boards website and is managed by the Education Department of the Board. The easy to use search facility provides Registered Nurses and Midwives with quick and simple access to data in relation to in-service and continuing education programmes to address their own learning needs. The directory provides you with access to hundreds of continuing education and professional development programmes that have An Bord Altranais approval. You can search the Directory by entering key words; or by clicking on one of our 14 major course groupings. Your search can be refined by geographical location as well.

Approved programmes are assigned An Bord Altranais Continuing Education Units (ABA CEUs) whereby 40 minutes to one hour of education/learning activity equates with one ABA CEU. An Bord Altranais hopes that this development will continue to support Registrants determine and meet their own professionally identified learning needs.
