Introduction

            Core competency in care allows nursing providers to practice nursing that responds and solves patient’s problems.  Nurses are obliged to follow the nursing competency structure, employ accurate nursing skills and think logically before solving healthcare problems. With a core competency, practitioners should coordinate and employ their different skills to improve care quality. A healthcare practitioner has demonstrated the required behavior which aligns with the profession’s mission and values. A core competent person can work effectively alone or with colleagues.

               The two core competency skills that control the program funding requests are financial planning and management skills and leadership and systems thinking skills. The service is very beneficial to the state department of health. Financial planning/management and management skills are helpful, especially when evaluating and improving the program, generating and defending budgets, and leveraging public health funding (Public Health Foundation .n.d.). With management skills, we can use performance management systems to restructure the state department of health. Managing finances is essential for the state department of health sustainability. Reimbursement approaches and regular financial analyses are fundamental to ensure accountability (Waxman & Massarweh, 2018). When it comes to leadership and systems thinking Skills, the state department of health should demonstrate ethical standards, good communication skills, and character when dealing will finances.

           The two competencies integrate based on our situation. Financial management will help the organization achieve its desired goals and objectives. Leadership is about being sensitive to all operations within the organization and making the right decisions that will ensure quality program delivery.
