Competencies for Advanced Practice Nursing

Postby apnresearch » 12 Dec 2011, 00:31

Hello everyone,

I'm an operating room nurse from Spain, currently engaged in a Doctorate degree program.

My preliminar work is based on a literary review focused on APN competencies, specially the grey literature produced by national nursing organizations. Major findings until now are related to USA,Canada, UK, Australia, Ireland and New Zealand. Beyond those the research grows more and more difficult. I've found some competency standards from France and Sweden and that's all.

Here's then my request of expert orientation to put my research in the right direction.

Any help will be very appreciated.

Thanks in advance.
