In Week 8, you will reflect upon and complete the self-assessment of core competencies. In Week 1 you competed the assessment and developed a goal for increasing knowledge and skill in this competency. Now, using the same worksheet from Week 1, complete the level of confidence for each item and identify how you met the goal for the competency identified for this course. Submit the assignment by 11:59 p.m. MT Wednesday of Week 8. Then place this worksheet in your ePortfolio.
The purpose of this assignment is to complete a self-assessment of the NLN Nurse Educator Core Competencies and develop a goal to help meet this competency.
National League for Nursing (2017). Nurse Educator Core Competency. http://www.nln.org/professional-development-programs/competencies-for-nursing-education/nurse-educator-core-competency
Completed at Weeks 1 and 8, this document is based on the National League for Nursing (NLN) Core Competencies of the Nurse Educator (NLN, 2017). Students should drop their assessments into their ePortfolio by Wednesday of Week 8, 11:59 p.m. MT. The Self-Assessment form is located in Course Resources.
This Self-Assessment of Core Competencies is a document that you will use throughout the educator track courses. It is to be placed in your ePortfolio. In each course, starting in NR535, you will focus on a specific area of the NLN Competencies.
You are to reflect upon and complete a self-assessment at the beginning of Week 1 and submit it by 11:59 p.m. MT Sunday of Week 1. Next to the assessment column, identify one goal for each competency that you hope to achieve by the end of this course (possible points = 50).
In Week 8, reflect upon and complete the self-assessment and submit it by 11:59 p.m. MT Wednesday of Week 8. Next to the self-assessment column, identify how you met the goal for competencies (#6 and #8) in this course (possible points = 50).
Remember that you are still in the development stage so not all (or any) of the competencies are expected to be at Level 3 by the end of this course.
As you move through the courses in the educator track, you will pull this self-assessment from your ePortfolio and complete it for the competencies specific for that course. In NR621: Concluding Graduate Experience 1 and NR622: Concluding Graduate Experience 2, you will do a similar assessment but will include all eight competencies. Directions for this will be in NR621 and NR622.
Self-Assessment of NLN Core Competencies for Nurse Educators
You are to reflect upon and complete a self-assessment at the beginning of Week 1 and submit it by 11:59 p.m. MT Sunday of Week 1. You are to identify your level of competency for each of the sub-competencies listed on the worksheet (see example). In the next column you will see the course outcomes which are aligned with the NLN Nurse Educator Core Competencies. The Course Outcomes are not specific to the individual sub competencies however by meeting the course outcomes, you will be able to increase your knowledge, skills, and abilities in the Core Competency identified for this course. In the final column for Week One, identify a specific example of what you will do throughout this course to achieve each course outcome (possible points = 50).
In Week 8, you will again identify your level of competency for each of the sub-competencies listed on the Week One Worksheet. In the final column you will give a specific example that shows how you demonstrated each course outcome. The assignment is to be submitted for grading by 11:59 p.m. MT Wednesday of Week 8. (Possible points = 50).
In the highlighted selection below, select the number that best represents your confidence that you meet each sub competency at this point in your education career.
1= I am not confident at all that I meet these competencies; I need significant education and practice in this area.
2= I am somewhat confident that I meet this competency but could use some additional education and practice in this area.
3= I am very confident that I meet this competency and do not need additional education or practice in this area except for traditional continuing education to update my skills.
Remember you are still in the development stage so not all (or any) of the competencies are expected to be at level 3 by the end of this course.
