The Essentials Faculty Tool Kit has been created to provide recommendations and exemplars for faculty in the development and transition to competency-based education and competency-based assessment. The recommended first step when implementing the Essentials is for faculty to read the new Essentials, and crosswalk the Essentials to their curricula. Faculty will be able to use the exemplars provided for each of the ten Domains and concepts across Domains as they begin to transition alignment of their curricula to the new Essentials. The tool kit template includes recommendations and examples of learning strategies, resources, recommended content, and assessment strategies for each of the ten Essentials domains. Recommendations are provided for both entry-level as well as advanced-level nursing education.
