Abstract

Competence in nursing practice can be determined by self-assessment, peer review, knowledge tests, and performance observations. In the hospital setting, this determination is traditionally completed during an annual competency day. By implementing on-demand competencies in one organization, the assessment of nurse competence is completed in real-time, resulting in increased nurse satisfaction and positive financial impact for the organization.
