I recently accepted a position as nsg ed coordinator for a 148 bed speciality psych hosp and am faced with the daunting task of revamping the staff dev program. This includes writing competencies, the most pressing are the age specific competencies. I'm looking for any info or resources for psych nsg orientation programs (psych tech, RN, LPN) as well as anyone willing to share competencies. Anyone out there who has undertaken this task with advice for a beginner? Thanks in advance for your assistance.
