The following is written about the Professionalism assessment by Frenetti:
Prof Dr. Marieke Schuurmans, Professor of Nursing Sciences at Utrecht University: “Should be required reading for board members and directors.”
Anke Huizenga, Board Chairman of SouthEastCare: “This instrument is entering a new phase in our company and that was needed.”
Wouter Steenwoerd, Team leader of Acute Admissions Department, Internal Medicine and MDL (Stomach, Intestine and Liver) Department at Het Groene Hart Hospital: “Firstly, the assessment gives a clear picture of the competencies that nurses, not only individually but also as a team have, and what to develop further. Secondly, the assessment gives us a good start in developing the different professional job profiles of nurses within the Groene Hart Hospital.”
Karin Radwan, Operations Manager of nursing at Reade: “Mastering nurses and myself I previously had little a clue what was needed for the development of the team. These were all confirmed in the result of the 'Professionalism in Nursing Performance' assessment. That feels good, a kind of objectification which makes it easier for discussion in the team. It becomes clear who is who, and who can help the team. Additionally, Freda exceeded my expectations with many learning materials (digitally) offered. During HKZ accredential feedback the 'Professionalism in Nursing Performance' assessment was named as one of the four strengths. We are very proud of it!”
Petra Osborne, Advisor in Education of the Waterland Hospital in Purmerend, The Netherlands: “The 'Professionalism in Nursing Performance' assessment gives hospital managers a precise image of the intensity-of-Care in a department or ward. Extremely useful both for individual performance reviews as well as team development projects. The assessment measures what it should measure and helps to qualitatively support the employability of the nursing professionals: the right man/woman in the right job.”
Marjolein Schouten, MSc, Manager Jeroen Bosch Academy of the Jeroen Bosch Hospital, Den Bosch, The Netherlands: “Extremely useful tool to map nursing capabilities, professionalism of the team as well as team effectiveness. Great tool for individual nursing professionals, department heads and managers.”
Lia Mulder, MSc. Manager Surgical Care department of the University Medical Center of Groningen, The Netherlands: “The 'Professionalism in Nursing Performance' assessment resulted in:
- Insight in knowledge, competencies and attitude of nursing professionals on individual and team levels,
- A viewpoint of a nursing professional him/herself and how do ambition of professionals and their organization align,
- Insight into the relation of team performance and intensity-of-care,
- Beautiful improvement plan per individual professional, yet also connected to team learning.
- Extensive ‘hooks’ for an objective discussion between nursing professional and manager.
- A 360° view on what goes well and what to improve. Gets the team aligned on the team priorities.
- Overall awareness among nurses but also for executives/managers.
- A very valuable instrument for personal and team growth, and for organizational development."
Anne E. Standiford, Ph. D., RN, Assistant Professor at St. David's School of Nursing, Texas State University: "What nurses do has never been documented in such detail as in the 'Professionalism in Nursing Performance' assessment."
