Abstract

Nursing competency validation must be effective to ensure safe and quality patient care. In this article, the authors discuss the components of an organizational validation strategy that includes clear definitions, selection of competencies, and responsibilities for initial and continuing competency assessment. Recommendations are made to assist nursing professional development specialists in implementing strategies to improve the assessment and validation of nursing competency.
