Our Education Governance Committee coordinates and reviews the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) activities of the Nursing CPD Institute to ensure best practice content that meets all legislative requirements in both the Nursing and Aged Care sectors.
Who is the Nursing CPD Institute?
The Nursing CPD Institute was established in 2011 and has evolved to become one of the largest online Nurse education portals in Australia. It was created by and continues to be staffed by specialist Nurse educators,
who continue to work within the tertiary
and health industry sectors. The Institute was established as a cost-effective education portal that provides one of the most dynamic and easy to use Nursing online education platforms available in Australia today.
Our CPD Library has been structured to support multiple styles of Adult Learning including Live
Webinars, Recorded Webinars, Read and Video Quizzes. In January 2020, we will also be releasing a
number of specialty Courses including Nursing Law and Ethics, Nursing Management and Wound
Care Management to name a few.
There is a significant number of one hour sessions that are particularly applicable to Nurses and
Care Staff who work in the often challenging Aged Care Environment. These sessions have been
tailored to also incorporate the most common mandatory education topics whilst also supporting
the Aged Care accreditation requirements.
Our online portal can be accessed via computer or smart device and the easy to use layout ensures
ease of access and ongoing utilisation by staff. Your employees will have 24/7 access to our
extensive library of CPD sessions. New sessions are added each month.
We welcome feedback and requests from our Members for specific educational requirements for
both the individual Organisation, or that may benefit the wider group of NCI members

The NCI Platform has capacity to create a Learning Plan for your team based on the CPD Sessions
available on the platform. This includes any Organisation specific sessions you may have added. The
Corporate Subscription Platform Administrator (a team member you nominate) has the capacity to
determine the content required for completion as well as the timeframes for completion by your
team members. This functionality supports our Education Matrix.
Create a Learning Plan for your team
The Education Matrix is a very useful tool. Not only does it provide concurrent evidence of individual
training sessions completed by your team members for accreditation purposes, it can also assist with
Human Resource Management. The Education Matrix allows the Administrator to monitor an
individual staff member, or group of staff, or the entire workforce and the sessions that are being
completed for a specified date range via an automated process.
The Corporate Subscription Platform Administrator also has the capacity to add education sessions
completed outside the NCI Platform to be included in the reporting functions of the Education Matrix.
When a report is generated, it can simply be exported to Excel to allow for manipulation, distribution
or printing as required.
Education Matrix (Reporting Module)
To support Nurses in the provision of evidence should they be audited by AHPRA, each employee has
access to a Professional Portfolio on the website. This Portfolio is stored securely and the employee
can add and alter information as they choose. The Portfolio upon completion is auto compiled into a
PDF document for ease of email / printing.
Your teams Professional Portfolio
Our affiliation with Australian College of Nursing provides your staff the opportunity to grow their career and tap into their individual potential.
The Platform is not limited by the availability, skill and/or knowledge base of the Service Educator, the portal provides staff access to over 250 educators 24 hours a day.
"NPAQ was launched in May 2014.
We had identified the importance of relevant CPD learning tools for Nurses and were very pleased to have located the Nursing CPD Institute.
Giving our members access to a platform which is available online 24/7 and maintains their CPD Training records is a real benefit.
We appreciate the effort the NCI team have put into the creation of the content and its ongoing development"
