While nurses regularly engage in informal self-assessments during the course of their work, there is also value in approaching self-assessment in a structured way. The intent of the Quality Assurance Program's self-assessment requirement is to support nurses to use the
Standards of Practice to complete a thorough assessment of their practice.
The self-assessment questionnaires (see links in right-hand menu) encourage you to think about how effectively you are meeting the Professional Standards in your practice.
Nurses currently complete the self-assessment questionnaire as part of their annual registration renewal.
These self-assessment questionnaires are complemented by the
colleague questionnaires, which form part of the multisource feedback process.
The self-assessment questionnaires are intended to be just the beginning. You will need to continue your reflection by focusing on the standards that have specific relevance to your practice. Visit the
feedback page for tips on asking for and receiving feedback, and to access complementary questionnaires for your colleagues.
If you hold a
certified practice designation, you will need to think about examples related to your certified practice as part of your self-assessment.
