The ACC is seeking comments on a draft competency statement describing the knowledge and skills of clinical cardiovascular nurse practitioners (NPs) and physician assistants (PAs), including those in general cardiology practice and those working in focused areas of cardiovascular medicine.

The document is intended to delineate competencies that one member of the cardiovascular care team can reasonably expect of other members who play complementary roles. Comments from cardiovascular NPs and PAs, cardiologists, and other stakeholders are due by Monday, Sept. 30.
