New competence review process

A new process was introduced at the beginning of July for nurses referred to the Nursing Council for reviews of their competence to practise.

The new review process aims to better assess if nurses meet the required standards of competence for their scopes of practice and, if not, whether they require further knowledge, skills and/or a period of supervision to assist them to practise competently.

The major change is the introduction of simulated practice scenarios as an assessment tool.
