Situational Assessments

Clinical Situational Assessments Measure Decision Making & Judgement

Now with Situational Judgement Tests (SJTs) by Prophecy, employers can measure the fit aspect of their job applicants.  Paired against responses deemed correct by healthcare professionals -just like you- the Interpersonal Competence SJT paints a picture of how an applicant is likely to respond in tough situations. You receive instant results that show your clinician’s ability to handle tough situations.

Interpersonal Competence SJT

The Interpersonal Competency SJT can help pinpoint, with 99% confidence, which clinicians will make the most effective decisions around the following performance dimensions:

  • Verbal Communication
  • Assertiveness
  • Critical Thinking
  • Problem Solving
  • Calm and Competent Patient Care
  • Report Transitioning
  • Developing Patient Relationships
  • Patient Customer Service

This online, video-based assessment replicates interpersonal situations common to the healthcare environment. After viewing each of the 21 web-based videos featuring real healthcare workers in challenging situations, the clinician selects the most and least effective responses to these real world scenarios.

Clinical Competence SJTs – Med/Surg, ICU, Labor & Delivery

Prophecy’s Clinical Competence SJTs are the first validated video-based tests for pre-employment testing available for the healthcare industry.  The patient simulation series’ aid hiring managers in understanding how candidates among a group compare to each other.

Created in partnership with Biddle Consultant Group, Inc., national leaders in Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) consulting, litigation support, personnel testing software development, and Affirmative Action Plan (AAP) outsourcing and software, over 100 subject matter experts participated in the content validity study involving the use of these situational judgment tests.

With over 65 video vignettes for three nursing specialties:

  • Medical/Surgical
  • Intensive Care Unit
  • Labor & Delivery

…the clinical competence video SJT boast specificity, meaning that the competencies being assessed are highly specific to a particular patient care arena.

Characteristics such as body language, tone of voice, and environmental factors, parallel the actual scenarios and environments in which nurses interact with patients every day.  Filming took place in a large community hospital in the Northeast (700+ beds) ensuring the realistic setting and modality of testing is second to none.

Combining the Prophecy Clinical job knowledge exams with the video-based situational clinical competence assessment provides hiring managers with a more holistic view of each candidate/applicant.  Prophecy’s nurse testing solution provides data to outline hiring decisions for hospitals looking to employ top performing workforces focused on positive patient outcomes.

Prophecy’s Situational Assessments identify caregivers with soft-skills directly correlated to successful nursing practice.
