Scrocynski et al. (2017) noted that it took four years of review and collaboration to develop the Nurse of the Future Core Competencies (NoF NCC). Numerous reasons were given for the necessity of these NCCs, including”increased focus on interprofessional competencies, collaboration, and teamwork” (Scrocynski et al., 2017, p. 234). As you are already practicing, you should be integrating the core competencies already. As a reminder, the Nurse of the Future Core Competencies include:
Informatics and technology
Evidence-based practice (EBP)
Teamwork and collaboration
(Massachusetts Department of Higher Education, 2016, p. 4).
What were the reasons for the selection of these competencies? Discuss two of the competencies as they relate to your practice.
