The National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties (NONPF) competencies
The National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties (NONPF) has determined nine broad areas of core competence that apply to all nurse practitioners, regardless of specialty or patient population focus. NONPF created the first set of Nurse Practitioner Competencies in 1990; the most recent updates were incorporated in 2017. This course was designed to prepare you to synthesize knowledge gained throughout the program and to apply each of the nine core competencies within your selected areas of practice and your representative communities.
The nine areas of competency are:
1)Scientific Foundations 2) Leadership 3) Quality 4) Practice Inquiry 5) Technology and Information Literacy 6) Policy 7) Health Delivery System 8) Ethics 9) Independent Practice
For each of the nine NONPF competencies, write one paragraph explaining how the program has prepared you to meet the competency (for a total of at least nine paragraphs). Then, propose how you plan to engage in social change in your community as a nurse practitioner. Finally, describe 1–2 legislative and/or advocacy activities in which your state nurse practitioner organization(s) are involved. Be specific and provide examples.
- Social Change 12) Legislative and Advocacy (State NP organization)
Please review the competencies and write about each one according to the rubric!!!! Based on the outline, there should be at least thirteen paragraphs in all. For maximum points, you need to support with research citation. You should know how to get maximum points by now!!!
REMEMBER TO SUPPORT YOUR FINDINGS WITH RESEARCH…EVIDENCE BASE PRACTICE**** You are unable to get the max points without research validation. However, some parts specifically request you to support your rationale with research. To receive max points in any of the areas would require critical thinking=research validation

The program has prepared me to meet the Scientific Foundations competency by providing me with a strong foundation in the biological, physical, and behavioral sciences. I have learned about the basic principles of anatomy, physiology, pharmacology, and pathophysiology. I have also learned about the different types of research methods and how to critically appraise research evidence. This knowledge will allow me to provide evidence-based care to my patients.
