Abstract:
Purpose: To establish the Managing Professional Nursing Practice Competency Inventory (MPNPCI) as a valid and reliable instrument to assist novice nurse managers (NM) to self-assess learning needs and measure progress toward competent management practices. Theoretical Framework: The Mastery Path (MP) for developing NM guides the study and identifies five management practices. The MP advocates for self-managed and life-long learning through formal and continuing education and on-the-job training. Methods (Design, Sample, Setting, Measures, Analysis): Literature review identified competency subscales and associated skills-based activities that formed the MPNPCI. Five expert NMs established the content validity of the MPNPCI. A sample of NMs drawn from the membership of an organization of nurse executives established the establish reliability of the competencies and skills based activities in the MPNPCI. Data were analyzed using SPSS software. Results: There are 8 competency subscales: philosophy of clinical care, contribution of nursing expertise to clinical care quality, executive level nursing leadership, nurse participation in clinical decision-making and the organization of clinical systems, professional development of nurses, collaborative relationships with members of health care provider team, and use of technology in clinical care and information management - with 40 skills-based activities. Content validity for the MPNPCI was CVI=1 for all retained items. Internal consistency reliability (N = 78; Cronbach's alpha = TBD) will be calculated to determine which competency subscales and skills-based activities to retain. Analyses of MPNPCI responses from 78 NMs revealed considerable consistency in the performance of activities. MPNPCI scores consistently varied between first line and mid level NM with a high degree of certainty (p = < .05). Further analyses are in process. Conclusions and Implications: Preliminary analysis indicate the MPNCI will be a valid and reliable measure for use within the MP. Further development will include testing among new NM. Developing instruments to assess the three remaining practices in the MP is in process.
