Abstract

From April 1st 2015 it will be mandatory for Higher Education Institutions (HEI) in the United Kingdom (UK) providing pre-qualifying health care higher education to use a Values Based Recruitment (VBR) tool, to ensure only the candidates with the "right" personal identity and values commensurate with the Professional Identity of Nursing (PIN) are accepted for nurse education. “Nurse Match' instrument was developed to enhance the recruitment and selection of candidates for pre-qualifying nursing. Action Research into PIN commenced with voluntary, purposive, convenience samples of qualified nurses (n=30), Service Users (N=10), postgraduate diploma nurses in mental health (N=25), third year adult mental health branch students (N=20) and adult and child student nurses in years 2 and 3 (N=20) in Focus Groups. Data collection and analysis occurred concomitantly between July 2013 and October 2014, aided by NVivo 10 software and revealed Key Quality Indicators (KQIs) of the social construction of PIN. Construct development included a literature review spanning the last fifteen years, which identified four main themes; 1. Nursing’s ethics and values 2. Nursing’s professional identity and caring, 3. Nursing’s emotional intelligence 4. Nursing’s professionalism. Nurse Match offers an evidence-based enhancement to VBR, for future nurse recruitment in locally, nationally and internationally.
