This educational webinar provides information about the development of this competency set, as well as strategies to support dissemination and implementation of the competencies, and offers 1.0 continuing nursing education (CNE) contact hours. The webinar highlights the extensive work of the QCC Competency Review Task Force and features speakers representing both the Task Force and the Council on Linkages Between Academia and Public Health Practice (Council on Linkages):
The QCC released the updated C/PHN Competencies in 2018. The C/PHN Competencies reflect the unique competencies required for the practice of public health nursing and align with the Core Competencies for Public Health Professionals (Core Competencies) developed by the Council on Linkages. The C/PHN Competencies use the same eight domains and three tier structure as the Core Competencies and can be used by public health nurses from entry-level to senior management/leadership in a variety of practice settings.
