This publication from the Canadian Nurse Association “describe the integrated knowledge, skills, judgment and attributes that guide nurse practitioner practice. Safe, competent, ethical nurse practitioner practice requires the integration and performance of many competencies simultaneously. This document may be used by nurse practitioners to support their self-reflection, self-evaluation and continuing competence, as well as to educate others about their role. Nurse practitioner educators may use it for curriculum development. And it is a useful resource for helping others – including government agencies, employers, health providers and the public – to understand what they can expect of nurse practitioners.”
