LMS Vs Nursing Competency Management System

Dr. Diane Cannon and Nick Stephenson of Xapimed discuss the differences between Learning Management Systems (LMS) and Competency Management Systems (CMS) in the context of nursing education. They highlight the limitations of LMS, which is primarily designed to deliver learning and verify knowledge, while a CMS verifies competency, accommodating the unique variables of nursing. They argue that traditional LMS often fails to support workflows around precepting, while a well-designed CMS can support complex relationships and workflows found in nursing precepting. They emphasize the importance of a strong user management system and tight integrations with other systems in a competent CMS.
