Shared Core Professional Competencies for Medicine, Nursing and Pharmacy
Each profession has defined competencies that have to be achieved by all students prior to graduation. It is the students’ responsibility to seek out opportunities from clinical practice and develop their cognitive knowledge to achieve these competencies, which establishes the profession's role in the protection of the public and ensures that the new graduate is fit for purpose and fit for practice.
ePrePP has carefully appraised the competency documents of medicine, nursing and pharmacy in Ireland and identified the shared competencies as a professional and as a practitioner.
The competency diagram shows the 5 domains of a professional and the 3 domains of a practitioner that are shared between medicine, nursing and pharmacy practice. The resources below will help you and your tutor to establish your learning needs.
