Held in Wyoming, subject matter experts with combined 45 years’ experience joined Prophecy leaders to create validated content for the new Charge RN exams. Charge nurses play a key role in the successful functioning of the healthcare team. Using exams during the hiring process, with validated content linked to job role responsibilities of healthcare positions, directly correlates to improving quality of patient care.
With Prophecy’s exam library growing to include 7 different rhythm interpretation assessments, knowing which exam to send when can seem a little confusing. In order to clear up questions regarding implementation, I’ve consulted our Clinical Education Team.
Prophecy Healthcare®, Inc., the leader in validated online healthcare competency assessments, announces development of new software solution, SNAP – a Job Analysis Validation Software. By consolidating and automating previously independent platforms, SNAP increases efficiency and accuracy, shaving off over 80 hours from Prophecy’s intense content validity test development process.
Although EKG monitors are complex devices, there are ways to make the transition into basic mastery smoother. EKG interpretation involves understanding some background information on how the heart pumps, how this information is communicated via the monitor, and how to read the results. While true “mastery” is achieved through real clinical practice, a clinician can begin this process by understanding how EKGs are used to visualize the heartbeat through waveforms, intervals, and segments. Anne Hackman, BSN RN MPA, NE-BC’s passion for educating for excellence led to this inspiring and historical overview of how nurse comfort with rhythm interpretations leads to better patient care and safety.
