Abstract:
The College of Nurses of Ontario establishes competencies which students must meet upon completion of their initial nursing education. Termed entry-level or entry-to-practice competencies, they are understood as terminal program outcomes required for successful registration or licensure. Graduates must meet the entry-to-practice competencies which are expectations of a generalist practitioner. The entry-to-practice competencies must be embedded in the curriculum and met at the point of initial registration with the College of Nurses of Ontario. Entry-to-Practice competencies help to integrate new graduates into the practice milieu, by describing the profile and context of practice of the entry-level Registered Nurse (RN). It is incumbent upon employers to create supportive practice environments to help bridge education and practice and ease the transition from learner to practitioner. Creating a quality practice environment is the shared responsibility of governments, employers, nurses, nursing organizations and postsecondary educational institutions (CNO, 2007). The new Entry-to-Practice Competencies for Ontario Registered Nurses as of September 2007 are futuristic, timely and relevant. This poster presentation has broad applicability, given emerging client health needs, new directions in health policy and delivery systems, and new developments in RN practice, education, and research.
