READINESS ASSESSMENT SCORE

 

Number of Yes responses you have selected is 11-15 out of 15:

This is likely a good time within your organization to participate in the Value-Based Nursing Care Project. Prior to implementation, continue to monitor whether the answers to these questions change and keep a close eye on any items to which you answered “No.”

 

Number of Yes responses you have selected is 6-10 out of 15:

Your organization may not be ready on several of the factors. This reduces the likelihood of the success of implementing Value-based Nursing Care at this time.

 

Number of Yes responses you have selected is 1-5 out of 15:

Based on your responses, significant work is likely needed to raise the readiness level of your organization. Moving forward with implementing Value-Based Nursing Care could create significant risk that it will not succeed or produce the desired results.
