    FUNCTIONAL ABILITIES STATEMENT

    Nurses must possess knowledge, application of skills, and abilities in order to provide safe and effective nursing care. Functional Abilities are those specific abilities/attributes a nurse must possess in order to practice safely and effectively. The National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) identified and defined categories of functional abilities (see below). The functional abilities for safe nursing practice include fine and gross motor skills, physical endurance and strength, mobility, hearing, visual, tactile, smell, reading, arithmetic competence, emotional stability, analytical thinking, critical thinking, interpersonal skills and communication skills. Some limitations in ability can be accommodated with special devices or special circumstances; others cannot. The reasonableness of accommodations will be based upon client safety and the resources of the College and department. Temporary or newly diagnosed interruptions in abilities (i.e. casted hand) will require individual evaluation.
