- MCPDP is Mandatory continuing Professional Development Programme. The programme is a brain child of the Nursing and Midwifery Council of Nigeria which was established in March 2010.
The inauguration of the state facilitators took place at Conference Centre of the University of Ibadan from 23rd – 24th March 2010 and all the states of the federation were mandated to commence training of Nurses.
The programme was designed for all cadres of nurses and is to be undertaken throughout their professional nursing career. It is a continuous formal learning programme within and outside the practice setting.
The MCPDP was conceived and developed for implementation so that professional nurses can remain relevant and kept abreast with modern trends in the area of practice.
- “In the full knowledge of the obligation I am undertaking. I promise to care for the sick with all the skills and understanding I possess, without regard to race, creed, colour, politics and social status, sparring no effort to conserve life, to alleviate suffering and
“I will respect at all times the dignity and religious beliefs of the patients under my care, holding in confidence all personal information entrusted to me and refraining from any action which endangers life or health”
I will endeavour to keep my professional knowledge and skill at the highest level to give loyal support and cooperation to all members of the health care team. I will do my utmost to honour and uphold the integrity of the nurse.
- As I care for my patients today,
Be with me oh Lord, make my words kind because it means so much.
In my hands, place your healing touch.
Let your love shine through all that I will do today.
So those in need may hear and feel your presence
