AACN’s Competence Framework for Progressive and Critical Care: Initial Competency 2022
“AACN Competence Framework for Progressive and Critical Care Initial Competency 2022” establishes the standard for ICU and PCU entry-level nurse competency. This comprehensive approach defines broad competencies based on the AACN Synergy Model for Patient Care, complemented by the core knowledge, skills and abilities (KSAs) that AACN deems essential during orientation.
Once a preceptor validates this combined set of competencies for a nurse new to an ICU or PCU practice area, managers can confidently determine that the nurse is ready to transition from orientation to more independent patient assignments.
