  1. The Federal Nursing Service award : Individual readiness in nursing.

    Article - En anglais

    Individual readiness is critical for effective nursing in deployed environments.

    Although readiness is routinely tracked and reported, a study of its complexity among federal nurses was needed.

    An inductive research approach clarified the concept of individual readiness.

    Representing a broad range of deployment experience, focus group members developed a definition of the concept and identified six components :

    • clinical competency ;

    • operational competency ;

    • survival skills ;

    • personal/psychosocial/physical readiness ;

    • leadership and administrative support ;

    • and group integration and identification.

    The findings form an overdue conceptual basis for future measurement of this important dimension of federal nursing.
