CMPRP Nursing Home Staff Competency Assessment Toolkit (11/18)

Toolkit 1: Nursing Home Staff Competency Assessment

Quality care is complex. That’s why the CMPRP competency assessment helps nursing homes break down and self-examine some of the most important building blocks of quality care. Use the competency assessment to identify areas where your nursing home is doing well, versus where your facility might need support. Once you know where you need support, CMPRP can provide funding, technical assistance and learning opportunities to help address some of your facility’s toughest challenges, in order to offer the best possible care to your residents.

There are three competency assessments in print and electronic formats:

1) Certified Nursing Assistants (CNA)/Certified Medication Technicians (CMT)

2)Licensed Practical/Vocational Nurses (LVN/LPN) and Registered Nurses (RN)

3) Assistant directors of nursing (ADON), directors of nursing (DON) and administrators.
