The purpose of this quasi-experimental study, adapted from the work of Kolb (1979) and Laschinger (1992), was to examine the differences in adaptive competency acquisition between Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) graduate candidates and second level Associate Degree in Nursing (ADN) students at two community colleges. Adaptive competencies are those outcome skills of nursing programs that are required to complete intuitive, inductive, problem-solving and people-oriented tasks. Participants completed the Adaptive Competency Profile (ACP), a Likert-type scaled self-assessment instrument. The results provided both individual scores and group means. The means of the ACP subscales were compared to determine adaptive competency acquisition and the t-test for independent samples was utilized to test significance. Four hypotheses were tested at the significance level of p=. 05. The results of this study indicated that there was no significant difference in adaptive competency acquisition between the two groups. Further analyses were conducted to determine any differences by college, program, gender, age level, and previous health care experience. The results indicated there was no significant difference for any variable examined. The results support the use of the Profile in evaluating the career mobility process. Additionally, the outcomes of the research places value on the variety of educational backgrounds that foster the development of competency types, both conceptual and practical, that enables graduates to function effectively in the changing health care work environment.
