NNU - K-12 Professional Development

K - 12 Education

The Center for Professional Development partners with K-12 educators to deliver professional development training and credits through a variety of learning platforms and delivery methods. Partnering with districts, principals, and school leaders, CPD helps to develop district embedded courses that meet the needs of teachers and work to fulfill professional development strategic plans for districts and buildings alike.

Professional Development Credits provided through CPD at NNU will be verifiable on an official NNU transcript and are valid for recertification and lane-change requirements for teachers. PD credit requirements include a minimum of 15 student learning hours per PD credit, led by a qualified content instructor.


"I was nervous to try and offer a professional development class to my fellow educators. NNU was there every step of the way and made the process fairly simple and easy. Whenever I had a question the staff was there to help. Offering the PD credit was a win all the way around and I am grateful for the ease of NNU's process." - Jeralyn Mire, Sandpoint High School

"I just wanted to say thank you, I am trying to recertify and out of all the institutions NW Nazarene has been the most user friendly, easy, straightforward, uncomplicated, and I really appreciate it. When given the opportunity to take credits again, I will definitely choose Northwest Nazarene University. I will also recommend to anyone else who is looking to recertify and take credits as well." - Lindsey

"It is DELIGHTFUL, professional and a blessing to work with NNU!!" - Angela R.

"I love getting a knowledgable person when I call. Getting transcripts is quick and easy." - Susie K., Boise School District
