The mission of the Interprofessional Continuing Education Partnership (ICEP) is to provide exemplary and innovative accredited interprofessional continuing education that improves the skills and strategies of healthcare teams, leading to healthier patients and communities.
Programs and events have been planned jointly with our colleagues in the School of Medicine and Public Health and the School of Pharmacy. ANCC and Iowa Board of Nursing contact hours as well as CEUs will be awarded for all conferences. Many of these programs also award ANCC pharmacotherapeutic contact hours for advanced practice nurses.

A blended learning experience - Online recorded content and in-person training!
You will be taught a wide variety of common procedures by skilled advanced practice providers in a supported environment. Online programming delivers traditional lectures and case-based discussion, for ambulatory, acute care, and telehealth settings. In-person training complements the online program, giving you the opportunity to practice skills hands-on in a simulation lab under the guidance of an experienced clinician.
This online enduring activity is designed to introduce participants to the concept and purpose of guided participation. Content includes general information about and features of guided participation, the structure and functions of: issues, processes, and competencies, guided participation benefits to the patient, their family, the healthcare team, and the healthcare system, and how guided participation fits within health communication and patient care theories and models.
Designed by Teams and for Teams
Interprofessional collaboration and team‐based care are becoming increasingly important. Our approach is to deliver educational opportunities designed by the health care team for the health care team.
We partner across the university and the community to bring multiple areas of expertise into the planning process, so we can identify the most important needs and issues and create opportunities that are both educationally sound and relevant to a broader segment of health care professionals.
The Nursing Professional Development program at the School of Nursing is part of UW–Madison’s Interprofessional Continuing Education Partnership (ICEP), which also includes the continuing education units at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health and UW–Madison School of Pharmacy.
In support of improving patient care, the University of Wisconsin–Madison ICEP is accredited by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
