Competencies for the Licensed Practical/Vocational Nurse
Competencies for the Hospice and Palliative Licensed Practical/Vocational Nurse, Second Edition, 2010

The use of standards, competencies, the requirements for primary and specialty professional palliative nursing are necessary to delineate practice. The Competencies for the Hospice and Palliative Licensed Practical/Vocational Nurse describes the explicit intellectual, interpersonal, technical, and moral competencies necessary for specialty palliative professional nursing practice. These competencies are outcome-specific and measurable. In this edition, the definition of competency has been adapted from Competencies for the Hospice and Palliative Advanced Practice Nurse. This definition reflects and provides synergy of several guiding tenets for the professional nurse in hospice and palliative care. Covering all the major topics and issues, including: current practice; behavioral expectations as outlined by the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Credentialing Center (HPCC) hospice and palliative registered nurse certification; knowledge expectations for the Licensed Practical/Vocational nurse (LVPN) emerging from the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association’s Core Curriculum for the Hospice and Palliative Licensed Practical/Vocational Nurse; and the 2013 National Consensus Project (NCP) Clinical Practice Guidelines for Quality Palliative Care.
