Abstract

The success of achieving a competency-based rehabilitation nursing practice is shared in this article. An education day provided a comprehensive approach to ensure that practicing staff nurses stay abreast of the knowledge and skills necessary to provide quality patient care. This article details the decision-making process, competency development, strategies, and evaluation of the competency program. Formal documentation of competency testing is an asset for follow-up and accreditation review.
