Nursing Continuing Professional Development

Contact Hours

The 20 March 2023 deadline to claim NCPD contact hours has passed.

Thank you for your participation.

Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing (Sigma) is accredited as a provider of nursing continuing professional development (NCPD) by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

To receive contact hours for the NCPD sessions offered during the program, participants are required to attend the entire session, complete the NCPD event evaluation, and complete the evaluation for each session attended. Certificates for attendees, presenters, moderators, and NCPD can be retrieved after the online evaluation is complete.

The number of contact hours awarded to each participant will be based on the number of evaluations completed for each session attended.


Relevant Financial Relationships

The planning committee members, content reviewers, and faculty/speakers/authors have disclosed no relevant financial relationships unless otherwise noted prior to the beginning of the educational session.

Commercial Support and Sponsorships

Sigma will inform attendees if a commercial interest has provided financial or in-kind support for the educational activity, including how content integrity is maintained and bias is prevented. This will be done prior to the individual educational session.

Non-Endorsement of Products
