Why do nurses need to ensure their knowledge is current?

Nurses are accountable for providing competent care, which means they must maintain and continuously enhance the knowledge, skills, attitude and judgment required to meet client needs in an evolving health-care system.


The CNA Accreditation Program upholds standards of quality for continuing professional development for nurses in Canada.
