Maximize Clinical Efficiency and Financial Return.


For the first time ever, hospital reimbursement is being tied to direct influencers from nurses who deliver care. Evidence based decision-making tools in the hands of point-of-care nurses drive quality care and now drive dollars.

GCPD understands the need for health care providers to successfully transition all nurses: new graduates, newly hired experienced nurses and nurses transitioning into new specialty practice areas. NDR helps organizations build a workforce based on quality care, safety, positive patient experience, and excellent patient outcomes. A prepared and competent workforce ultimately drives increased reimbursement dollars.


Galen Center for Professional Development (GCPD) believes the nation’s health depends on nurses. It is a core belief which guides all we do. Our collaborative approach creates partnerships with health care providers to align with their goals for quality patient outcomes and nursing workforce development. NDR is additive and allows you to  retain and incorporate what systems you may already be using, have developed, and find of value into a system of new products with new features that you can add over time in whatever sequencing is right for you.

Arm your nursing workforce to positively impact your bottom line; maximize reimbursements, recover costs and increase retention. Assurance of the latest evidence based practices across your entire nursing workforce increases clinical efficiency, promotes financial responsibility, and transforms your nursing workforce.

Advance is NDR’s high quality interactive e-learning curriculum modules and corresponding competencies. Seamlessly updated relevant content that focuses on evidence based practices associated with National Patient Safety Goals, core measures and patient satisfaction

Benchmarks are a unique component of NDR that provides a roadmap for healthcare organizations to accurately determine the length of “precepted” or “orientation” time. An evidence based tool with consistent, predictable and measurable criteria. This innovative approach provides the evidence necessary for managers, educators and preceptors to deem a nurse ready for independent practice.
