Versant Healthcare Competency Solutions is dedicated to the clinical and professional development of the workforce throughout their careers
Competency-based education is a prerequisite to transition to practice. However, experiential and reflective learning that can be assessed, validated, and documented is critical to ensure safe practice.
While other services promise improvements through didactic learning, periodic online courses, and monthly meetings, Versant assists clients in creating a confident and empowered workforce capable of thriving in today’s healthcare environment.
To help clients reach this goal, Versant has created a competency-based framework that fundamentally transforms healthcare using competency profile assessment, remediation, and validation of state-of-
the-art practices that achieve positive patient outcomes. Our integrated, intuitive, and seamless platform allows our partners to validate competencies where they matter most: at the point of care.
For more than twenty years, Versant has remained steadfast in our commitment to evidence-based practice. We measure underlying metrics linked to the success of onboarding new graduate nurses and experienced nurses transitioning into new areas of practice (transition fellows). Programmatic, Individual Clinical Performance, and Work Environment outcomes are analyzed and leveraged to assist our client partners in evaluating successes and opportunities to determine solutions that address the needs and achievements of their workforce.
- Achieving positive outcomes towards patient safety, retention, and workforce development.
