PATIENT CARE COMPETENCIES … Competent nurse having to share mind to reflects upon and evaluates with peers and experienced nurses, the effectiveness of nursing care. (2015). Therefore, the purpose of this study was to pilot an EPA-based method of assessing NP student clinical competence. Instead, they discussed the knowledge gap with the FNP Director, who in turn created assignments to remediate student learning. NP leaders have recognized EPAs as a potential framework for competency assessment in graduate nursing education (Wagner et al., 2018), and many have voiced a need to integrate EPAs into NP curricula and to develop national NP EPA standards (AACN, 2015; Giddens et al., 2014). Student competency scores for each simulated clinical scenario were calculated by averaging the scores of all EPA activities associated with the scenario. stream In addition, faculty evaluated the EPA grading rubrics by assigning utility scores. Eight clinical scenarios were designed by NP faculty to assess either one or two EPAs. The eight domains are: Analytical/Ass The charge of educators and nurse leaders is to develop the core competencies of professionalism, recognize the factors that influence professionalism, and identify strategies that will support the growth of nursing professionalism. The “Developing behaviors” descriptions in the EPA grading rubric focused on a level of specificity not required for use at a single point in time.

Students are entrusted to perform EPAs unsupervised once they attain sufficient competence. Similarly, the AACN (2017) published common competencies for doctoral-prepared advance practice RNs (APRNs) and supports transitioning from time-based education and clinical experiences to competency-based assessment. The Core Competencies for Public Health Professionals are organized into eight domains. The former include such attributes as gentleness, willingness to serve, keen observation and judgment, efficiency, skillfulness, responsibility and accountability. Interpret written diagnostic and screening test results. The National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties ([NONPF], 2017) identifies core competencies that all NPs must meet upon graduation from an educational program and has played a critical role in advancing the discussion of new methods to recognize achievement of student competencies.

Some EPAs are unique to specific health professions (or specialties within the profession), whereas others apply to multiple professions. AAMC (2014) developed 13 EPAs expected of medical school graduates entering a residency, known as the Core EPAs for Entering Residency (CEPAERs). The Maine Nurse Core Competencies (MNCCs) were developed in 2013, by a diverse group of nurse leaders representing academia, practice and policy across the state. The American Association of Colleges of Nursing ([AACN], 2017) defines competency as an observable ability of a health professional that integrates multiple components such as knowledge, skills, and attitudes. Each of these is subdivided into specific objectives that every nurse practitioner must demonstrate in order to graduate NP school. These are the 12 core competencies that have been identified as critical for successful job performance..
