Who Can Use the Role-Specific Core Competencies?

  • Novice nurses who are identifying the qualifications they should possess or acquire during their first one to two years in a role
  • Experienced practitioners who are standardizing the expectations and requirements of a role
  • Administrators and institutions who are developing position descriptions, training methods and materials, evaluation processes, and personal or professional development tools
  • Nurses who are curious about how their position compares to ONS-developed role descriptions
