Staff Development Programme

Staff development is the process directed towards the personal and professional growth of the nurses and other personnel while they are employed by a health care agency.

The staff development programme supports faculty development by providing partial or full reimbursement of the cost of courses, seminars and workshops that enable faculty to improve performance in current jobs, prepare for career development, or meet requirement of degree programs related to current performance or planned career development.

This can be viewed as the activities and programs (formal or informal and on or off campus) that helps staff members learn about responsibilities, develop required skills and competencies necessary to accomplish institutional and divisional goals and purposes, and grow personally and professionally to prepare themselves for advancement in the institution or beyond the campus.
