Competencies have been formulated for entry level nurses, Specialist and generic advanced nursing competencies are also being devcloped.
This paper describes exploratory groundwork on aged and extended care nursing competencies derived from interviews with nurses, allied health staff, residents and their families from one setting.
Critical Incident Technique1was used to guide semistructured interviews with 29 participants.
A thematic analysis of the data suggests that the Australian Nursing Council Inc. competencies make a useful but incomplete contribution to understanding the perceived role of nursing in aged and extended care.
A conceptual framework developed from the data illustrates the interdependence of competencies with the context in which they are observed.
The framework proposes a number of elements which have the potential to offer a means to better interpret nursing competence (critical aspects) in aged and extended care contexts.
