Abstract

Background and aim: The SARS-Cov-2 pandemic restored the policy-makers’ attention on Primary Care essentiality and highlighted the relevance of Family and Community Nurses (FCNs), in order to ensure the proactive interception of individuals, families and community needs. In Italy, the FCN’ role was officially introduced in 2020. Starting from the Position Statement on Family and Community Nurses of the Italian Nursing Order, the guidelines of FNC proposal were written. The ENhANCE (EuropeaN curriculum for fAmily aNd Community nursE) project defined a standardized professional profile of the FCNs, based on specific Core Competencies. The aim of this work was to investigate and integrate the differences between the two profiles. Methods: In order to carry out this comparison, these competencies were compared and integrated with those identified by the Tuning model (TM), which identifies the knowledge, the skills and the attitudes that all newly graduated nurses must have acquired at the end of their education programme. Results and conclusions: Nine of the eleven Italian competencies are included among the twenty-eight competencies of ENhANCE as well as two of three competencies selected in the TM. The benchmark produced a list of 30 competencies which integrate the European and the Italian profiles, with the aim of applying them in an educational setting thanks to the Tuning Model. This comparison makes possible to develop specific and standardized educational program. (www.actabiomedica.it).
