  • Apply critical thinking and clinical reasoning skills to address simple to complex situations and translate research-based evidence into practice for safe, high-quality patient-centered outcomes. 
  • Practice holistic care in a variety of health care settings for diverse populations across the lifespan and the health-illness continuum.
  • Integrate cultural, economic, social, environmental, genetic, regulatory, and political factors in designing care for individuals, families, and communities. 
  • Use standardized terminology, information systems, and patient care technology effectively.
  • Use effective communication and collaboration skills with members of the health care team, patients, and support networks.
  • Synthesize principles of leadership and management, accountability, and life-long learning while functioning in multiple roles of care (i.e., provider, designer, manager, and coordinator) to ensure a safe practice environment.
  • Incorporate legal and ethical precepts, as well as standards of practice, in serving as advocates for the patient and the profession. 
  • Integrate principles of quality improvement and safety to ensure optimum care.
