How to Complete this Self-Assessment

This instrument is divided into the key dimensions, or core competencies, of Nursing Informatics (NI) practice and assesses 178 perceived competencies in

three areas or categories: computer skills (13 items), informatics knowledge (56 items) and informatics skills (109 items). Please take your time when completing this self-assessment.

Reflect on each competency. Read each one, “As an informatics nurse, I can…” and determine your level of competency (Expert, Proficient, Comfortable or Beginner/NA) based on your ability to exhibit the behavior or perform the skill.

· Beginner / N/A level reflects that you are unaware of or have limited knowledge and/or skills

· Comfortable level relates to easy association with the information, knowledge or skill necessary to be able to function with ease and able to use your judgment to problem solve, infer and interpret

· Proficient level denotes that you are informatics competent, well-advanced, and fluent in your ability to bilingually address nursing and IT; able to analyze and synthesize data, information and knowledge into wisdom to inter-professionally guide other healthcare team members

· Expert level reflects extraordinary or exceptional proficiency that progresses the data, information, knowledge and wisdom pathway to intuition; the breadth of your experience provides the ability to assess the context of each situation intuitively and respond and perform appropriately

Please select only one competency level for each item based on your perceived ability. There are no right or wrong responses.
