Nursing professional development (NPD) is a career-long continuum of formal and informal educational activities informed by wide-ranging sources of clinical, practice, scientific and theoretical evidence. An environmental scan indicates a plethora of professional development opportunities in integrative nursing with offerings across multiple learning platforms (symposia and conferences, residential intensives, online asynchronous sessions, asynchronous media-supported classes and agency-supported in-service sessions) and multiple venues. Several professional organizations, universities, and private companies offer opportunities to develop knowledge, skills, and abilities that prepare nurses to competently care for self and patients.
