Please write a detailed narrative that addresses how you have met or currently meet the 4 dimensions of nursing practice. place close attention to attached example. congratulations on your selection for an rn position with the north texas va medical center! as part of the salary determination process for registered nurses, you will be evaluated by a panel of your peers (nurse professional standards board or npsb) against the four dimension of nursing practice. the responsibility of the npsb is to ensure that you meet established qualifications and subsequently establish a pay level recommendation. as such, your response to the nine dimensions has a direct impact on the establishment of your pay. the following guidance is provided to optimize your success with this process. although daunting at times, your thoughtful responses to each of the nine criteria within the four dimensions are critical to the outcome of your salary determination. the npsb has an opportunity to qualify you at one of three grades: nurse i, nurse ii, or nurse iii. within nurse i, there are also three levels—level 1, level 2, and level 3. when considering your
responses, be advised of the following qualification standards for each grade:
Nurse i: associate degree/diploma required. in each of the four dimensions, the board is looking for individual growth and development in clinical practice to increasing levels of self direction.
Nurse ii: bachelor’s degree in nursing required. (associate in nursing/diploma with bachelor’s in health-related field may be considered). in each of the four dimensions, the board will expect unit level contributions and leadership.
Nurse iii: master’s degree in nursing required. (bsn with master’s in health-related field may be considered). in each of the four dimensions, sustained leadership resulting in program contributions and outcomes beyond the unit/practice setting. that is, involvement at the
organizational level is expected.
Note: both educational requirements and meeting the four dimension standards for that particular grade are required to be recommended for that grade. the four dimensions of nursing practice are as follows: nursing practice (practice, ethics, resource utilization); professional role-leadership (education/career development, performance); collaboration (collegiality, collaboration) and scientific inquiry (quality of care, research). note: leadership is not one of the dimensions, but leadership principles are expected to be woven throughout the established categories. each of the nine criteria should be addressed by you citing examples (at least one) to support the qualifications standards. one example may suffice to support all criteria under a single dimension, but all criteria must be met…not just the dimension. as a template for your response, the following guidance is offered: what as done? – action for whom? – population what difference did it make? – outcome when? – sustainability please see the following table for additional guidance: * if you want additional information/clarification, please see
