Abstract

This is a report to the Burdett Trust on an evaluation of the effectiveness of a values-based screening tool (Nurse Match, NM) in the identification of suitable candidates for interview as part of the application process for nursing and midwifery programmes in Northern Ireland. The tool is also assessed as a potential replacement for the present screening test, a Personal Statement. It is compared with the present screening test with a focus on psychometric probity and a modified version is used to assess leadership potential in applicants. The report is funded by the Trust.
