Use of Nursing Professional Development Scope and Standards in a Community-Based Hospital System

The scope and practice of nursing professional development (NPD) has evolved to encompass more than the education and orientation of nursing staff, and Monument Health is leading the way incorporating an evidence-based practice model to better promote nursing excellence.

In 2016, the Association for Nursing Professional Development (ANPD) published a practice model representing the scope of practice while encompassing the various NPD roles of learning facilitator, change agent, mentor, leader, champion for scientific, inquiry, advocate for NPD specialty and partner for practice transitions.

ANPD further explains that while education, onboarding and orientation are still important and included in the NPD scope, competency management, role development, collaborative partnerships, and inquiry are also part of the NPD scope.

While Monument Health’s NPD department transformation journey was not quick, the outcomes include increased collaboration, decreased workload duplication, improved mentorship, and more!

Monument Health’s full story is available in Journal for Nurses in Professional Development.
