Nurse Practitioner Entry-Level Competencies (2023) Document 

The CRNS is pleased to announce the release of the Nurse Practitioner (NP) practice document Nurse Practitioner Entry-Level Competencies (2023). The Nurse Practitioner Entry-Level Competencies (2023) come into force and into effect on September 25, 2023.

The Entry-Level Competencies for NPs reflect the foundational knowledge, skills, and judgement required of NPs to provide safe, competent, ethical, and compassionate care. While NPs’ roles and responsibilities may vary by context and client population, this document outlines the competencies that all NPs must possess to be competent when they begin to practice. You will find this document under Nursing Practice Resources, NP Resource. 

In addition to reviewing the revised document, you may find the key summary page  helpful. In addition, we invite you to tune in to a Facebook live on September 7, 2023, at noon. The presentation can be watched on #replay if you cannot make that time.

CRNS Nursing Advisors are available to answer your questions. They can be contacted by phone at 1.800.667.9945 or 306.359.4227 or by email at
