Conference Programme - Coming Soon!

The 2017 programme will be live in the summer but you can view the 2016 programme here

Best Practice in Nursing offers you mandatory training, clinical updates, practical skills, professional development, careers advice and more in a lively two-day programme. The agenda is designed so you can create your own personalised 12-hour CPD educational programme from the 38 hours on offer across multiple conference streams. Therefore, by attending both days of BPiN you could build up 12 of the 40 hours that is proposed will be needed towards Revalidation. Attendees will be able to boost their CPD hours by logging into the Best Practice website after the conference to catch up on sessions they missed.
