Professional & Staff Development

Professional and staff development nurses strive to engage nurses in lifelong learning. Their responsibilities include overseeing staff education, supporting role transitions and providing training and resources for evidence-based nursing practice. They mentor new and veteran clinicians, develop orientation programs, coordinate ongoing competency plans, identify educational priorities, and encourage quality improvement projects.

Nurses in professional and staff development incorporate adult learning principles and instructional design standards into educational curriculum and assess performance outcomes. These nurses often participate in nursing research, share the results, and integrate new findings into clinical practice. They collaborate with multidisciplinary teams as well as administration to ensure high standards of quality patient care.

In this Professional & Staff Development Nursing Resource Center, we’ve put together resources to help you on your career journey in education.
