Abstract

The purpose of this study was to examine the use of adaptive competency acquisition in Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) graduate candidates as an assessment mechanism for career mobility. Participants completed the Adaptive Competency Profile. The results indicated that LPN graduate candidates developed adaptive competencies necessary for career transition. The results place value on career mobility, while providing educators insight into the basic competencies of one level of educational preparation, which can aid in service-based program development.
