Abstract [en]

Background: Various educational programs in advanced practice nursing have been developed throughout the world during the last decades to raise registered nurses’ clinical competence, thereby improving nurses’ competence for independent nursing roles. The “Professional Nurse Self-Assessment Scale” instrument has been developed to determine the core competences of advanced practice nurses (APNs), in accordance with the ICN’s definition of advanced practice nursing. A central question is whether such educational programs develop the required core competencies.

Aim: To describe APN students’ perception of competence and perception of need for further training/learning by means of the PROFFNurse SAS instrument.

Methods: Approximately 50 APN students from Norway, Sweden, Finland, Iceland, the Netherlands and Great Britain will be asked to participate and answer the PROFFNurse SAS questionnaire (through Questback) from October 2013 to April 2014.  Data will be collected during the last study year of the students’ study program. IBM SPSS Statistics 20 for Windows will be used for statistical analyses.

Results: Descriptive statistics of the students’ self-assessment of clinical competence and need for more training/learning will be presented during the conference. Differences between countries and between NP and CNS programs will be analyzed.

Conclusions: The results of the study will provide an overview of APN students’ self-assessed clinical competence and possible gaps in the APN education programs will be identified.

Intended learning outcomes:

  • Understand core APN competencies through the PROFFNurse SAS instrument;
  • Discern whether differences in NP and CNS educational programs exist;
  • Recognize the need for assessing education programs from students’ perspectives.
