Competencies ... they help to define the knowledge, skill, judgment and the attributes required to practice according to our standards. They are a critical link to making our standards live at the interface of care - and home health nurses now have their own competencies! Please join us to learn about how they were developed, about the guidance they contain, and help us to collectively celebrate yet another important milestone for community nursing!
