The Practice Nurse Project - Competency Framework and Competency Development Plan
The Practice Nurse Competency Framework (PNCF©) is a guidance tool and resource for Practice Nurses.
It has been designed by the Practice Nurse Project Team, which involved experienced Practice Nurses, and a General Practice advisor with a wealth of experience in managing and leading GP practices. It has been critically reviewed by experts who have a background in Practice Nursing, General Practice, Academia and GP practice services.
It is recognised by the Practice Nurse Project Team that certain content of the PNCF© may need further refinement.
It is important to ensure systems are put in place to update the PNCF© on a systematic rolling basis – at least every 6 months for quality purposes.
