    Hear from two chapter authors, Melanie Rainford, MSN, RN, NPD-BC, and Nicole Gooding, MSHS, BN, RN, NPD-BC, and editor Mary Harper, PhD, RN, NPDA-BC, FAAN, about the significance of the Core Curriculum for Nursing Professional Development, 6th Edition in this episode of the NPD Forecast podcast.

    Melanie’s chapter, “The Change Agent Role in Nursing Professional Development,” and how she explores the current and future state of health care and the way this influences the NPD profession. Nicole’s chapter, “Gaps in Professional Practice: Learning Needs Assessment,” and how she explores the responsibility of NPD practitioners to effectively explore the root behind challenges prior to proposing and implementing solutions. How these chapters are interrelated—both outline the complexities of the profession and speak to the idea that the work must be grounded in evidence and patterns. Key takeaways from other select chapters and how they resonate with Dr. Harper. Why the Core Curriculum is a toolbox that will enhance your NPD superpowers.
