National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties

Assignment: National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties (NONPF) Competencies

The National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties (NONPF) has determined core competencies that apply to all nurse practitioners, regardless of specialty or patient population focus. NONPF has represented them within nine broad areas of core competence. NONPF created the first set of Nurse Practitioner Competencies in 1990; the most recent updates were incorporated in 2017. This synthesis course has had the overarching objective of preparing you to be able to synthesize knowledge gained throughout the program and be prepared to apply each of the nine core competencies within your selected areas of practice and your representative communities.

The nine broad areas of competency are:

  1. Scientific Foundations
  2. Leadership
  3. Quality
  4. Practice Inquiry
  5. Technology and Information Literacy
  6. Policy
  7. Health Delivery System
  8. Ethics
  9. Independent Practice

To Prepare:

The Assignment

For each of the nine NONPF competencies, write one paragraph explaining how the program has prepared you to meet it (for a total of at least nine paragraphs). Then, propose and explain how you plan to engage in social change in your community as a nurse practitioner. Be specific and provide examples.

The pain started last night, and has become progressively more severe. He also complains of the urge to void but has little urine output, and it is blood tinged. Due to the pain, he has not taken any fluids or food in 24 hours. Mr. Lyons undergoes lithotripsy, and analysis of stone fragments to reveal calcium stones. (Learning Objective 6)

a. Mr. Lyons’ symptoms are most indicative of stones in what area of the renal system?

Mr. Lyons has the following orders:

· Morphine sulfate, 2 mg IVP every 2 hours as needed for severe pain

· Ibuprofen, 600 mg every 6 hours

· Normal saline at 200 mL/hr

b. What are the rationales for the above orders?

c. Based on the calcium composition of the stone, what dietary teaching should the nurse include in Mr. Lyons’ plan of care

nursing care

Study Daily

Various models of culture care are available to support the delivery of quality care in nursing. Theorists such as Campinha-Bacote, Giger and Davidhizar, Leininger, Purnell, and Spector have developed models that nurses use as they incorporate a patient’s culture into the nursing care they provide.

Explain what model of culture care fits your worldview of nursing and how will you implement it in your future role.
