Lifelong Learning, Certification, and Nursing Practice: Their Interrelationship

Sandra P Hirst, Carole Lynne LeNavenec & Rebecca Stares
A legislatively regulated and self-regulating profession, such as nursing, holds its members (registered nurses) accountable to the public it serves for the continuous development of the competencies they profess to hold. A requirement for competency is lifelong learning and can be evidenced through certification. In this paper, the interrelationship of lifelong learning, certification, and registered nursing practice is examined. Strategies used to support certification through a lifelong learning approach are described.
