Competency Assessment - Requirements

What is required to complete a competency assessment?

Any examples are for illustrative purposes only.

The competency assessment can be accomplished through a variety of methods including the assessment of information from current and previous employers, collecting peer feedback, verifying certification and licensure, reviewing test results with a written or oral competency, and observation of skills. The assessment must be thorough and focus on the particular competency needs for the clinical staff's assignment. Use of a self-assessment, such as a skills checklist, as the sole assessment method does not constitute a competency assessment.
