Just starting at the VA, I have 15 years of experience, BSN, MSN 

Any suggestions/example on the proficiency?

Thank you so much!

Copied from another poster:

The main thing for nurse 3 is to have a different example for each domain and everything must include: the problem, intervention, outcome, sustainability.  All of these must be at the program ororganizational level.  It must be outside of your unit.  

I think you are new to the VA so be sure to ask for the N3 clinical pathway example that is relavent to the position you have selected.

The person who rates you. I believe it is also online at the nursing board website. Sorry I don’t have the website available to post. There are members of your nursing board at the facility where you work. If you work for a CPAC, your nurse manager or the assistant national policy analyst should help you. Also if you are a CPAC nurse, they did a presentation a while ago and it should still be available on the CPAC share point portal in the RUR library. I think it also has the website to the nursing boards there as well.

RN4KU and pfchange, could I please have a copy of your proficiency? I am looking at the appeal process and have gathered more evidence. I have been a Nurse 2 for 7 years, and I am very close to a Nurse 3, and I know that I can get it with what I have, but my NE is trying to boost his numbers by saving money and denying promotions. Thanks in advance!

If your still in the determination process ask your HR contact or the nurse manager of the unit/Dept..if already hired then can go online to SharePoint.. HR and proceed from there

  An outside company was finally hired to interview nurses about leadership issues, lack of morale, high turn over and basically how we all feel, it was fairly uniform that most nurses felt the same, but we will see what is done, short of a complete management white wash nothing will change.

Just wanting to follow up on the hiring process at your facility.  are they still using an outside company? Has there been less favoritisim noted?  We are in process of hiring a new ANM on my unit... I wish that the interview team would include people from different services (at least) or different VA's in order to make a selection.

MicheleBono, how long have you been an RN/at the VA? What degree do you have? You would have to appeal the decision. The board should be able to tell you where you lacked.

I have been a RN yor 9 years, and I have only worked at the VA. I have a BSN with 2 certifications, a PCCN and CCRN. I am going back to school for a DNP with 1 semester of Grad school done. I am appealing the denial for Nurse 3, but if it is denied again, I will send it to National.

National board won’t help you. They are even stricter than the local boards. If you want change, it will take a collective group of nurses all going to the union with examples of non promotion.
