Abstract

In an effort to streamline educational initiatives at our institution, we developed the Nursing Education and Competency Algorithm and the Nursing Education and Competency Advisory Panel. The Nursing Education and Competency Algorithm serves as a framework in differentiating education and competency through standardization of practice. Utilizing the algorithm assists in distinguishing initiatives as one time, on-going, or if they are specific to a specialty. The Nursing Education and Competency Advisory Panel serves as a vetting structure to improve collaboration through decision-making and shared governance.
