Hello all,

I am new to the VA system and have been offered a tentative job and I sent my NPSB to the board and it got sent back with 5/9 dimensions that needed "better examples" for a nurse 2 position. I was wondering if anyone had any examples of resource utilization, performance, collaboration, and quality of care. I thought that I submitted some top notch examples but apparently not LOL. The examples that they originally sent weren't very specific. Thanks!

So you want to show examples at the highest nursing possible. For example as a director of nursing: examples of collaboration that influenced the group you were leading, they wanted copies of any policies you may have made. You don’t want to show examples that affected a certain individual patient or nurse, but examples that showed how you were able to influence a floor, a hospital, anything in the larger scheme of things.

I really thought that, that was what I demonstrated in my examples. Looking back on my submission I see two standards that I could have elaborated on further but as far as the others I'm not sure what else I can submit. I'm sure they don't want us lying.
