Home Health Nursing Competencies are the integrated knowledge, skills, judgement and attributes required of a nurse working in home health to practice safely and ethically. Attributes include, but are not limited to attitudes, values and beliefs (adapted from Canadian Nurses Association Code of Ethics, 2008)
The Canadian Community Health Nursing Standards of Practice (2008)3 have been used as the organizing framework for the home health nursing competencies contained in this document. The competencies, which were developed by experts in home care nursing, are broad in scope, thereby lending themselves to application within multiple settings and to be further delineated into more specific elements of practice for job descriptions or performance appraisal tools.
