COMPETENT NNP 2 Interviews are conducted for various reasons, but most importantly to gain insight about a person and or situation in order to share with others or to educate. Interviewing an Advanced Practice Nurse (APN) provides the APN student with insight into their sought ought career field. Jacka (2016) states that to become successful within a given practice that interviewing allows one to gain insight, identify pros and cons of the practice, and advice on knowledge gained from experience (p.38). Sherry Denise Baxter, is a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner (NNP) with whom I work with, that allowed me the opportunity to discuss competencies with the advanced practice role and her career journey that led to her becoming a NNP. What are the NONPF Core Competencies The National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties (NONPF), is an organization that was created in 1974 by educators to encourage the continued education and development of nurse practitioners nationally and internationally. The core competencies were created in 1990 as essential behaviors necessary for practice of APN’s after completing their nurse practitioner programs. These competencies are basic actions required for all APN’s regardless of practice specialty of NP, CNM, CRNA, or CNS. These core competencies were nationally validated in 2011 as acceptable proficiencies for practice.
