Competencies for the Palliative and Hospice Registered Nurse
Competencies for the Palliative and Hospice Registered Nurse, 4th edition, 2021
These competencies delineate the essential professional expectations in palliative nursing. The Competencies for the Palliative and Hospice Registered Nurse, 4th edition, explicates the comprehensive knowledge, skills, and expertise that are outcome-specific and measurable. They are grounded in Palliative Nursing: Scope and Standards, 6th edition, and describe the explicit intellectual, interpersonal, technical, and moral competencies necessary for contemporary, high-quality, specialty palliative nursing practice. The definition of competency has been revised from previous HPNA nursing competencies and is synergistic with nursing and palliative care. Behavioral expectations are organized by the roles of palliative RNs within the Synergy Model. Knowledge expectations for RNs build from the Core Curriculum for the Hospice and Palliative RN and the 2018 National Consensus Project for Quality Palliative Care Clinical Practice Guidelines.
