Family nursing theory and practice has evolved over the past four decades, is taught in many nursing programs and continues to grow in value worldwide. The International Family Nursing Association Committee on Family Nursing Practice recently developed core competencies for professional generalist family nursing practice, the IFNA position statement on generalist competencies for family nursing practice. This presentation will share the competencies and discuss evaluating generalist curriculum regarding family nurse care. Ten family nursing scholars from 6 countries used an iterative process involving reflection and discussion about family nursing science, practice models, theory and terminology and debated the identification of core competencies. Themes were developed and refined during the online discussion. Two members synthesized the information and prepared a final draft. The IFNA Education Committee and the membership reviewed the final draft before approval by the IFNA board of directors. Once the competency document was published, family nursing faculty from Wright State University developed a protocol for evaluation of the new family competencies in SON undergraduate curriculum. The generalist competency for family nursing practice has five core competencies and related sub-competency indicators. It provides a foundational framework to guide international generalist nursing practice when caring for families. This position statement can be used to guide curriculum development in undergraduate nursing education, program evaluation and research. The position statement and curriculum evaluation documents will be shared, as well as the process for generalist nursing programs’ curricular evaluation of content to assure competencies in care of families.
