Developing Level Competencies in Nursing Education

There is certainly justification for this. Many skills cannot be learned without learning other skills first, so there is a natural progression from the basic skills to the more advanced skills. Another justification is that more complex, difficult, or dangerous tasks are best suited to students that have achieved experience at the lower levels enabling them to understand the dimensions of what they are doing beyond the limited scope of the task. For example, while a freshman nurse may focus on the process of taking a blood pressure, a senior nurse may relate that blood pressure to any number of conditions such as diabetes, pregnancy, or kidney failure, and this additional knowledge can suggest further issues that need to be examined in ensuring the patient's comprehensive care. The levels could be set up with learning outcomes, and the main benefit would be to focus the teaching so that it accomplishes its goals. The benefit would be that the learning outcomes are measurable.
