A pre-hire test worth taking
Mike Ferris with Pasos Houston Home Care receives a lot of requests for his agency’s pre-hire tests. (See test, pp. 137-138.) He administers them to RNs, he says, during the hiring process "to establish a minimal level of knowledge and establish a baseline of competency."
Ferris points out that there are several questions whose answers can be debated depending on how one interprets their wordings. Ferris says he has "found that the best hires are the ones who question those. It shows knowledge, attention to detail and an interest in the subject matter."
