These competencies are intended to be used in conjunction with the graduate and APRN core competencies outlined in the AACN (2006) Essentials of Doctoral Education for Advanced Nursing Practice or the AACN (1996) Essentials of Master’s Education for Advanced Practice Nursing. They are focused on the entry-level competencies for graduates of master’s, doctorate of nursing practice (DNP), and post-graduate programs preparing primary care NPs who serve the adult-gerontology population. These consensus-based competencies also focus on the unique practice knowledge, skills, and attitudes of the adult-gerontology primary care nurse practitioner.
