Discussion: Competencies for Nurse Practitioners


The Consensus Model for APRN Regulation has brought about changes in the competencies for nurse practitioners. There are Core Competencies for all nurse practitioner populations and include both MSN and DNP degrees. Review your Learning Resources Page to examine the Core Competencies.

  • Family/Across the Lifespan competencies
  • Adult-Gerontology NP competencies

The major categories of family/across the lifespan competencies include the following: Scientific Foundation; Leadership; Quality; Practice Inquiry; Technology and Information Literacy; Policy; Health Delivery System; Ethics; and Independent Practice.  In this Discussion, you explore the nine competencies, and their application to the clinical setting. The adult-gerontology NP competencies are different and students in that specialty should become familiar with them.

To prepare

  • Review this week’s media presentation with Dr. Terry Buttaro in the Learning Resources. Review the Consensus Model for APRN Regulation and the National Organization for Nurse Practitioner Faculties Core Competencies and population foci competencies.




  • Reflect on the category that was assigned to you by the Course Instructor. Think about how you would implement this competency in a clinical setting. Consider evidence-based clinical practice.

Assignment:Post  a brief description of the competency that was assigned to you. With your competency in mind, explain how you would implement it in a clinical setting. Support your rationale with evidence from current research.
