Originally founded in 2004 as NurseTesting.com, Prophecy Healthcare got its start as the first online Pre-Employment Testing Company exclusive to the Healthcare Industry. Initially focusing solely on clinical assessments measuring clinical competencies, efforts to exceed industry expectations led to isolating critical competencies missed in traditional testing initiatives, such as stress tolerance, critical thinking, and teamwork skills. The Prophecy approach offers the ability to find candidates with the clinical hard skills, personality attributes, and desired soft skills to match each organization.
Traditional use of a single assessment only provide a uni-dimensional view of a person’s qualifications. Using a variety of tools to measure skills, abilities, and other job-relevant characteristics provides a solid & multi-dimensional basis upon which to make important career and employment-related decisions while minimizing adverse impact.
In December 2009, NCSBN Board of Directors determined that safe and effective entry-level RN practice requires a greater level of knowledge, skills, and abilities than was required in 2007. Given the current nursing shortage, hospitals are cross-training staff to help fill voids in units with high turnover rates. Health care reform continues to further mandate transparency of and reimbursement based on quality of care and patient satisfaction data. Therefore finding the right nurse is now more important than ever. And, with the patient acuity level increasing causing nurses to become multi-functional, now is the opportunity to be more selective.
