The goal of KentuckyOne Health Louisville Area Facilities annual nursing competency assessment is to provide the highest and most consistent quality of care and safety for patients and their families.
Competency testing is essential throughout the organization for all job classes and contract personnel to ensure the utmost level of care and standards are met and available for all who come through our doors.
Competency is the integration of cognitive, affective and psychomotor domains of practice. It involves both the ability to perform in a given context and the capacity to transfer knowledge and skills to new tasks and situations.
Numerous methods are used to validate these competencies and we strive to use the most effective means possible to make sure every nurse is meeting these guidelines.
