Assignment 2: Core Competencies (due date Friday 23)


Each advanced care provider role has specific core competencies specific to the specialization. Following are links to websites describing core competencies that are relevant to the South University College of Nursing and Public Health advanced practice role specializations:


  • Indirect Care Provider Roles:
    • Nurse Administrator
    • Nurse Informaticist
    • Nurse Educator
  • Direct Care Provider Roles:
    • NP (Adult, Gerontology, or Family Health)


To prepare for this assignment, review all core competencies and then provide a response in a 3- to 5-page paper (excluding the title and reference page) your review of these competencies considering the following:


  • Compare and contrast the core competencies of a direct care provider advanced role and indirect care provider advanced role. For example, if you are a nurse informaticist or nurse administrator student, compare your role’s core competencies to the NP core competencies. If you are a NP student, compare your role’s core competencies to that of the nurse informaticist or the nurse administrator.
  • Analyze the similarities and differences in implementation of the competencies within the selected roles.
