Scientific Foundation Competencies
These competencies ensure that nurse practitioners graduate with a comprehensive background in medical sciences.

Thinks critically about data and applies this evidence to improving practice.
Allows knowledge from the humanities and other disciplines to inform one’s work in nursing.
Incorporates research findings to enhance practice methods and patient outcomes.
Creates fresh evidence-based approaches and techniques, paying thought to research findings, core theory, and experience from practice.
Quality Competencies
Quality care, as defined by the NONPF, refers to the degree to which health services increase the desired health outcomes consistent with professional knowledge and standards. Quality competencies focus on understanding how to access and use information databases and how to critically evaluate research findings.
The quality core competencies include the following:
Applies the best and most contemporary research findings to clinical practice.
Considers the complex relationships between cost, safety, access, and quality in healthcare delivery.
Assesses the effects of organizational structures, financial management, policy, and other factors on healthcare.
Offers feedback in peer reviews to “promote a culture of excellence.”
Tailors care to each practice situation and uses interventions as necessary.
Practice Inquiry Competencies
Practice inquiry competencies focus on translational research, i.e., taking academic research and applying it to the clinical setting. These competencies ensure that nurse practitioner students understand how to apply research to improve their patients’ health outcomes.
The practice inquiry core competencies include the following:
Translates new knowledge into practice through leadership.
Uses clinical experiences to inform practice and improve patient outcomes.
