Introducing the New and Improved ARN-CAT!
Evaluate basic rehabilitation nursing competencies of your staff with the newly updated and improved ARN Competencies Assessment Tool (CAT). The ARN-CAT contains 16 individual assessment tests, each with updated questions, rationales and references. New to this edition - expanded bowel and bladder assessments which are now two separate tests and the new Safe Patient Handling assessment test.
ARN-CAT is perfect for Nurse Managers, Administrators, Educators, or Case Managers, who need a simple way to evaluate staff competency in the basic areas of rehabilitation nursing. The next time you need to provide evidence of competency to JCAHO, or to test your staff's knowledge to meet internal education goals, or evaluate the proficiency of visiting/floating nurses, think of ARN.
ARN-CAT is not only easy to use, but free to you and your staff!
ARN-CAT encompasses 16 basic rehabilitation nursing competency areas. Each assessment can be completed as many times as is deemed necessary and the results page will include the user's name and the number of times s/he has completed an assessment for that competency. It is recommended that each supervisor determine a satisfactory score for their staff and develop a means for tracking the information.
If you are not already signed on to the ARN website you will be asked to do so before entering the ARN-CAT by providing your ARN user name and password. If you do not have an ARN user name and password you will be asked to create one. You are no longer required to set up a separate log-in to access the ARN-CAT.
