DENOSA provides a learning platform as a means to assist nurses with their career paths. DENOSA does this through partnering with various partners to ensure that nurses get their CPD opportunities as this will be a requirement once the nursing regulatory body approves the CPD regime for nursing in the country.
On this platform, we afford nurses with an opportunity to be kept updated on various aspects of nursing careers and leadership.
Partnership with Word Continuing Education Alliance (WCEA):
DENOSA has partnered with the World Continuing Education Alliance (WCEA) to provide online short courses and training opportunity that serves various needs of nurses. These assist nurses to earn CPD points.
Free CPD in-house online courses
The constraints of distance, time and place of learning have been reduced with the introduction of e-learning, which will soon become a reality when the actual implementation of the DPI’s learning programmes.
Learners enrolled with the DPI will be able to develop professionally in nursing without limitations of work, personal, or even social circumstances. All that the individual learner needs is access to a computer. While e-learning enhances lifelong learning (learning throughout life) it also actualizes ICT’s (Information & Communication Technologies) role in expanding the levels of literacy.
Amongst many of the benefits of e-learning, DPI-registered nursing learners are able to communicate with their educators and facilitators, access work given in their respective choice of courses, and check their results. These are only few of the benefits associated with e-learning.
