The European Nurse Professional Competence Project within the ENNA Network
Researchers from eight European countries (Figure 1) are collaborating in a research project with the objective of acquiring and comparing information from a questionnaire on how nursing students at the point of graduation estimate their own competences in nursing. Our intention is to contribute to quality assessment and quality improvement in nursing education in Europe.
The questionnaire being used in the project is the Nurse Professional Competence (NPC) Scale, which originates from Sweden. In addition to the original Swedish version, the NPC Scale is currently available in English, German and Portuguese language and will soon be available in Dutch, Italian and Norwegian language.
During the ENNA meetings in 2016 the research group members met in Gothenburg, Sweden and Coimbra, Portugal to share experiences on the preparation of the forthcoming data collection within the project.
