Health Canada has provided funding for the development and delivery of continuing education programs to support the learning needs of nurse practitioners in rural and northern Ontario. This initiative is administered by the Council of Ontario University Programs in Nursing (COUPN). In preparation for the development of continuing education strategies and programs, CRaNHR has been commissioned by COUPN to conduct an assessment of the learning needs of the nurse practitioners working in rural and northern communities of the province. The needs assessment will also examine how these continuing education programs should be delivered and the approaches to be used in maintaining and enhancing the competency and knowledge of nurse practitioners.
