Q. Where do I go to find evaluation tools for nursing?
Hanna Schmillen, our health sciences librarian, offers the suggestions below.
There are a couple places and ways! Finding assessment tools can be tricky because many are not free.
- Plan A: There are a couple resources (databases) to check out listed on the Tests and Measures Guide.
- Plan B: Some nursing and health professions professional organizations have evaluation and assessment tools (not always free), such as the QSEN Institute and The International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning, or The Sigma Repository
- Plan C: Look at studies to see if they include their pre and post tests or surveys in their article. You can contact authors as well, if you find one that looks super promising.
