ARN Competency Model for Professional Rehabilitation Nursing

For the past several months, a team of rehabilitation nursing experts has been creating a comprehensive competency model for rehabilitation nursing. Identified as a critical need in ARN’s Strategic Plan, the model serves to identify the core competencies critical to the professional role of a rehabilitation nurse. While the skilled application of specific nursing interventions is always important, the model also seeks to define the higher-order characteristics of a professional rehabilitation nurse as a leader, educator, promoter of successful living, and interprofessional team member.

The draft model is now ready for member review and comment. ARN wants your feedback! The member review and comment period will end on Friday, March 21, 2014.
