New 2016 Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner Competencies

AACN and the National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties (NONPF) recognized the need to revisit the 2010 adult-gerontology competencies to present them within the same framework as the other population foci to make it easier for faculty to cross-walk competencies across the NP curriculum. From 2015-2016, the joint work group reviewed and updated the adult-gerontology competencies. The work group includes representatives of both AACN and NONPF with expertise in adult-gerontology ACNP and/or PCNP curriculum development. The 2016 version of the competencies include both sets of adult-gerontology NP competencies. Each set is presented in a table format to emphasize the relationship of the population-focused competencies with the NP core competencies. The expectation is that an educational program will prepare the student to meet both sets of competencies.
