Title : Nursing competence profile: A business model for an effective management of expertises

Abstract:

Introduction: The correct management of professional competence is fundamental in human resource (HR) management process of healthcare organizations. In this sense, a competence profile of nursing staff becomes an essential tool in the development of standards of healthcare to a good and great clinical practice.

Aim: This study is to create a competence profile model for nurses.

Method: The nursing competency model has been divided into two different levels: basic and advanced profile. The first defines a cross working profile; the personal skills delineate a professional role suitable for every organizational clinical context. The advanced nurse profile plays instead a key role in the main clinical areas (surgery, medicine, emergency, etc.); this expertise assists him in performing complex tasks. Was created a business tool that contains basic and specific skills according to a replicable, standardized and exportable model, useable for all non-medical health professionals.

Results: The organizational model defines a comprehensive base map of each level of competence of nursing. This tool is essential in the management of patients and an effective management of HR.

Conclusion: This work has defined a conceptual basis of an integrated model of nursing expertise. This competence analysis defines the clinical competency based on skills, attitudes and personal abilities for nurses who work in specific contexts and circumstances in order to ensure high standards of healthcare assistance and actively participate in managing of care therapeutic processes by promoting patient safety, good clinical practice and excellent nursing healthcare.

During the presentation will be discussed the importance of the “Nursing Competence Profile” in the Italian context. In this sense, will be described the profile’s structure explaining the different sections and two profile models (basic and advanced). Will be discussed the main differences between basic and advanced nursing competences. Will be defined a conceptual basis of an integrated model of nursing expertise.

This competence analysis defines the clinical competency based on skills, attitudes and personal abilities for nurses who work in specific contexts and circumstances in order to ensure high standards of healthcare assistance and actively participate in managing of care therapeutic processes by promoting patient safety, good clinical practice and excellent nursing healthcare.
