“A competency is an expected level of performance that integrates knowledge, skills, abilities, and judgment. Knowledge encompasses thinking, understanding of science and humanities, professional standards of practice, and insights gained from context, practical experiences, personal capabilities, and leadership performance. Skills include psychomotor, communication, interpersonal, and diagnostic skills. Ability is the capacity to act effectively. It requires listening, integrity, knowledge of one’s strengths and weaknesses, positive self-regard, emotional intelligence, and openness to feedback.” (American Nurses Association, 2021, p. 146)
