The use of standards, competencies, the requirements for primary and specialty palliative nursing are necessary to delineate practice. The Competencies for the Hospice and Palliative Advanced Practice Nurse describe the explicit intellectual, interpersonal, technical, and moral competencies necessary for specialty quality advanced palliative nursing practice. Advanced practice is inclusive of advanced practice registered nurses and graduate-prepared nurses who with doctoral education. These competencies are outcome-specific and measurable. The definition of competency has revised from previous HPNA nursing competencies and is synergistic with nursing and palliative care. It covers all the major topics and issues including: current practice; behavioral expectations as outlined by the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Credentialing Center (HPCC) advanced hospice and palliative registered nurse certification; knowledge expectations for the advanced practice nurse (APN) emerging from the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association’s Core Curriculum for the Hospice and Palliative Advanced Practice Registered Nurse; and the 2013 National Consensus Project (NCP) Clinical Practice Guidelines for Quality Palliative Care.
