developing a national approach to nursing – Global Homework Experts

1
Introduction
The Australian Nursing and Midwifery Council (ANMC)
is a peak national nursing and midwifery organisation
established in 1992 with the purpose of developing a
national approach to nursing and midwifery regulation.
The ANMC works in conjunction with the state and
territory nursing and midwifery regulatory authorities
(NMRAs) to produce national standards which are an
integral component of the regulatory framework to assist
nurses and midwives to deliver safe and competent care.
The standards include the national competency
standards for enrolled nurses which were frst adopted by
the ANMC in the early 1990s. These have been reviewed
and revised regularly since then. Other standards
developed by the ANMC for implementation by the
NMRAs include the competency standards for registered
nurses, midwives and nurse practitioners, codes of
professional conduct and ethics, and a range of position
statements and guidelines. The full list of standards,
position papers and guidelines produced by the ANMC
can be viewed on the website.
The national competency standards for the enrolled
nurse are scheduled for review in 2007. This review will
be undertaken by a team of expert nursing consultants
and will include extensive consultation with nurses
around Australia. The purpose underpinning the review
will be to contemporise the standards to reflect the
changing role of the enrolled nurse within the health
environment of today. Whilst ANMC anticipates the
resulting standards will be different in some areas from
the existing competency standards, they will remain
broad and principle based so that they are suffciently
dynamic for practising nurses and the NMRAs to use
as a benchmark to assess competence to practice in a
range of settings.
What are the standards used for?
The national competency standards for the enrolled
nurse are the core competency standards by which your
performance may be assessed to retain your license to
practice as an enrolled nurse in Australia.
As an enrolled nurse, these core competency standards
provide you with the framework for assessing your
competence. They may also be used by your state/territory
NMRA to assess competence as part of the annual renewal
of license process, to assess nurses educated overseas
seeking to work in Australia, and to assess nurses returning
to work after breaks in service. They are also used to
assess nurses involved in professional conduct matters. In
addition, they may also be used by the NMRAs to assess
nurses involved in professional conduct matters and to
communicate to consumers the standards that can be
expected from nurses.
Universities and the Vocational Educational Training sector
also use the standards when developing nursing curricula,
and to assess student and new graduate registered and
enrolled nurse performance.
These are YOUR standards — we believe you will fnd
them easy to understand and user friendly. Included also
are the principles of assessment which will assist you in
understanding how these standards may be used to assess
performance.

Description of the enrolled nurse on
entry to practice
The enrolled nurse is an associate to the registered
nurse who demonstrates competence in the provision
of patient-centred care as specif ed by the registering
authority’s licence to practise, educational preparation
and context of care.
Core as opposed to minimum enrolled nursing practice
requires the enrolled nurse to work under the direction
and supervision of the registered nurse as stipulated by
the relevant nurse registering authority. At all times, the
enrolled nurse retains responsibility for his/her actions
and remains accountable in providing delegated nursing
care.
Core enrolled nurse responsibilities in the provision
of patient-centred nursing care include recognition of
normal and abnormal in assessment, intervention and
evaluation of individual health and functional status. The
enrolled nurse monitors the impact of nursing care and
maintains ongoing communication with the registered
nurse regarding the health and functional status of
individuals. Core enrolled nurse responsibilities also
include providing support and comfort, assisting with
activities of daily living to achieve an optimal level of
independence, and providing for emotional needs of
individuals. Where state law and organisational policy
allows, enrolled nurses may administer prescribed
medicines or maintain intravenous fluids, in accordance
with their educational preparation.
Enrolled nurses are required to be information
technology literate with specifc skills in the application
of health care technology. Enrolled nurses demonstrate
critical and refl ective thinking skills in contributing to
decision making which includes reporting changes in
health and functional status and individual responses to
health care interventions.
Enrolled nurses work as a part of the health care team to
advocate for and facilitate the involvement of individuals,
their families and signifcant others in planning and
evaluating care and progress toward health outcomes.
These responsibilities are illustrative of the types of core
activities that an enrolled nurse would be expected to
undertake on entry to practice.
All enrolled nurses have a responsibility for ongoing self
development to maintain their knowledge base to carry
out their role.

Assessing Competence
Whilst it is important that all nurses are aware of the
competencies to practice, and are able to assess their
own performance using these, there are also occasions
where individual nurses may be assessed by others
to ensure that they are competent to practice. The
competencies may also be used as the standards
by which nurses are assessed when their conduct or
professional practice is in question.
To assist assessors, the ANMC has developed a
document entitled ‘Principles for the Assessment
of National Competency Standards for Nurses and
Midwives’. The full document, which includes a detailed
description of the assessment model used, is available
from the ANMC. It is recommended that anyone
undertaking the role of assessor should familiarise
themselves with this document prior to undertaking
the assessment. The actual principles for assessment
are reproduced here to assist nurses undergoing
assessment to understand the basis upon which the
assessment of their performance will be made.
Principles for the Assessment of National
Competency Standards for Nurses
Principle 1
Principle of Accountability
• Assessors are accountable to the public and to
the profession to undertake a valid and reliable
assessment of candidates.
• Assessors are accountable for assessing
candidates as competent against the ANMC
National Competency Standards and as suitable
for licensure by a state or territory regulatory
authority when required.
• Assessors will ensure that candidates are
assessed in the practice setting.
• Candidates who have not demonstrated
competence in the practice setting should not
be recommended to a regulatory authority for
enrolment.
Principle 2
Principle of Performance Based Assessment
• Clinical competence is performance based and
therefore the assessment must be carried out by
assessors in the context of the candidate/person
interaction.
• Assessment of practice is considered a valid
model of assessment of core competencies for the
licensing of nurses and midwives. This mode is
useful as a multi-purpose procedure as it provides
a global assessment of the candidate’s knowledge,
skills, values, and attitudes.
• Regulatory authorities have a responsibility to
ensure that the assessment model focuses on
knowledge, and performance that is closely related
to the demands of the practice situation.

 

11
Principle 3
Principle of Contextual Relevance
• The regulatory authorities recognise that the
nature of professional nursing and midwifery
practice is such that to attempt to evaluate
competence in a single and narrowly prescribed
procedural assessment model fails to recognise
the multifaceted nature of nursing and midwifery
practice and the comprehensive knowledge
required.
• The context in which assessment of competence
occurs is considered to be an essential component
in the competency standards assessment
framework.
• The practice setting involves many contextual
factors including the environment, the relationship
with the persons receiving care and the behaviour
of others in the practice setting that cause the
candidate to act in a particular way. These
factors should be taken into account during the
assessment process.
Assessing Competence (continued)
Principle 4
Principle of Evidence Based Assessment
• Evidence based assessment utilises a model of
evidence based professional judgement.
• The process of assessing competence requires
an accumulation of data, or evidence about
performance over a period of time and in a range
of situations.
• The judgement about whether a candidate has
reached a satisfactory standard of performance is
based on the interaction between the assessor’s
comprehensive knowledge of the expected
standards of performance and the interpretation of
the assessment data, including the context within
which it is collected.
• Assessors can obtain data or provide evidence of
performance through:
○ self-assessment by the candidate
○ observation by the assessor of the
candidate
○ interviews by the assessor with the others
in the setting, for example peers, persons
receiving nursing or midwifery care,
supervisors
○ analysis by the assessor of all relevant
documentation.
• Assessors work with and observe the candidate
being assessed in the practice context. Pieces
of evidence about the candidate’s practice are
gathered by the assessor and these pieces of
evidence are put together and inferences are
drawn about competence.
• Inferences should always be checked to validate
the assessment judgement.
• Assessors use professional judgement, which
involves the drawing of inferences and the use
of tacit knowledge to form a conclusion about the
competence of a particular candidate.
• For tacit knowledge to be used conf dently as a
basis for assessment it is essential that assessors
have a full understanding of the expected standard
of performance.

 

12
Assessing Competence (continued)
Principle 5
Principle of Validity and Reliability in Assessment
• Validity in the assessment process is the extent to
which assessment meets the intended outcomes.
Reliability in the assessment process refers to the
consistency or accuracy of the outcomes of the
assessment process.
• The assessors’ knowledge and skill are the most
crucial elements involved in enhancing the validity
and reliability of the assessment process.
• Evidence (pieces of information about the
performance of the candidate being assessed)
is gathered by the assessor. Assessors therefore
can provide evidence to justify their assessment
judgements.
• A variety of sources of evidence about the
performance of a candidate enhances the rigour
of the assessment process and gives validity and
reliability to the judgement. Sources of evidence
may include:
○ observation of performance
○ audit of documents such as care plans and
clinical records
○ interviewing the candidate to reveal intentions
and attitudes
○ interviewing colleagues and persons
receiving care to collect data regarding
outcomes of care
○ testing (for example drug calculation,
written assignments, multi choice
questions)
○ examining records of previous
achievements
• Reflection and re-interpretation of evidence about
the performance of the candidate is an important
element in the assessment process and adds to
the reliability of the assessment judgement.
Principle 6
Principle of Participation and Collaboration
• Assessment of performance should be based
on a participative and collaborative relationship
between the assessor and the candidate.
• The tenet of impartiality, conf dentiality and
declaring any conflict of interest will underpin this
participative and collaborative relationship. This will
ensure that participants in the assessment process
will feel confdent in the assessment methods.
• Participation and collaboration in the assessment
process involves high levels of communication, refl
ection on and re-interpretation of performance.
• Formalised review processes established by
organisations undertaking assessment will
address grievances held by candidates who
are being assessed and assist in ensuring
participation and collaboration between others in
the assessment process. These processes will
also provide a mechanism for rigorous scrutiny of
the result of assessment judgements
