A Free Tool To Help Place You as a New Hire
The Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses (AMSN) is currently developing a comprehensive competency model for medical-surgical nurses. The competencies are based on an extensive literature review, evaluation of current medical-surgical nursing role descriptions, and the practice of medical-surgical nurses from a variety of geographic, institution and practice settings. A highly qualified task force of medical-surgical nurses from around the country have been working with AMSN and our consultants on measurable competencies across three levels of competence.
Self-Assessment Survey: During the COVID-19 pandemic, we know some of you may be placed as a new hire or part of a contingent staff in a new practice environment. AMSN’s self-assessment can assist you in evaluating your skills, helping your employer find the right clinical area and appropriate patient assignments or tasks that are based on your individual strengths.
AMSN is happy to provide this self-evaluation to you free of charge during the pandemic. All we ask in return is that you are willing to provide feedback to us on how the self-assessment worked for you.
If you would like to use our self-assessment to assist you with your new practice environment and assignment, please submit the short form below, and we will provide you with a survey link. The link will allow you to self-evaluate your competencies. You can then print out the results to share with human resources and hiring managers to appropriately assign you during the COVID-19 pandemic.
AMSN is also currently compiling resources for you in an additional area to help you on your journey, training and education.
Training and Education: AMSN recognizes that you may be deployed to other practice settings within your organization, or at a new organization. AMSN is compiling educational resources to assist you.
When you complete the form below, you will immediately receive the self-assessment survey for use. We will also send you a notification in a few days when the additional resource of training and education materials mentioned above are available.
