Nursing Professional Development (NPD) Program

The mission of the College of Nursing and Health Sciences Nursing Professional Development Program is to provide quality, evidence-based educational offerings based upon emerging patterns of nursing and healthcare, societal needs, and expressed needs of the registered nurse learner. 

These offerings are provided to professional nurses in the Acadiana area, across the state of Louisiana, and nationwide who are practicing in diverse settings across the lifespan and health continuum. 

These educational offerings are accredited by ANCC and fulfill the requirements for Louisiana state board relicensure and re-credentialing in practice specialties.

Nursing Professional Development Series

Each academic year, we offer a wide variety of NPD courses through our “Nursing Professional Development Series” to assist RNs and APRNs in meeting their licensure requirements and maintaining practice competency in a variety of interest and practice areas. Program topics are developed as a result of input from area nurses, nursing administrators, nursing educators, and healthcare trends.

UL Lafayette NPD Program is excited to bring you our new comprehensive, online learning platform dedicated to enhancing nursing knowledge and practice. 

Please visit our NPD Learning Center for all your nursing professional development needs including live and on-demand webinars.
