CPD Courses

VNS Nursing Agency has partnered with ECT4Health a training and education provider offering a wide range of educational programs to nurses, students, and paramedics, including face-to-face, online, and education in holiday destinations. If you're looking to refresh your skills, meet or boost your required CPD points, then you've come to the right place as ECT4Health can help you cover it all.

ECT4Health was set up by nurses who live and breathe the industry and are now giving back to their nursing community by offering education that is fun and affordable.

VNS’s partnership with ECT4Health enables us to offer courses for VNS agency nurses and midwives so you can up-skill, maintain CPD points, and continue to develop and grow in your nursing career. It can be difficult to keep on top of education when you are working at multiple jobs or not working directly for a hospital that provides education, so we want to make it as easy as possible for our nurses and midwives to get access to high-quality education.
