I am creating a new set of pre-employment tests for RNs & LPNs and also for CNAs.
What types of questions do y'all use for the pre-employment testing? Do you just administer a math test,
or do you include basic skills as well. I would appreciate any resources you use as well as any advice!

Where I worked most recently there wasn't any pre-employment testing done for newly hired nurses (no CNAs were hired during the time I worked there, so I don't know what would have been done for them). The boss assumed if they had a positive work history and had NCLEX/were licensed, testing wasn't needed. Probably pretty naive, eh? There WAS yearly training and checkoffs of skills and knowledge, though, for all nurses.
