The Community Nursing Competency Framework (CNCF) is a guide to provide clarity on the roles, responsibilities and associated competencies for nurses working in the community care settings.
Nurses, employers and course providers may use the CNCF as a reference to set job role expectations, develop training roadmaps and design workplace-based nursing education courses.
The CNCF is applicable to all settings and institutions outside of acute hospitals. The framework lists 12 Job Role Profiles (JRPs) and 12 Professional Competencies (PCs) organised into four competency domains.
