Self-Evaluation of Nursing Skills

This tool is designed to help you self-evaluate your “skills” as a Registered
Nurse. The tool will help you to identify your strengths and opportunities for
growth as you progress in the curriculum.

The skills checklist is divided into sections according to content similarity. Please
review all skills and indicate what level (see scale below) you believe you are in
regards to that particular skill by placing an ‘X’ in the appropriate box. This
checklist needs to be completed in its entirety and submitted via Bb by specified
due date

Remember there is no right or wrong answer, as RN’s we bring many different

talents and strengths to our practice. The checklist will become part of your e-
portfolio and used to help make decisions regarding practicum experiences.

Rating Scale:

Beginning- I am unable to perform this skill and/or I do not know what this is

Developing- I am familiar with this skill and have a basic understanding of to

safely perform but I am hesitant to perform and/or ineffective when attempting

Accomplished- I am proficient with this skill but can improve on speed and/or

Exemplary- I have mastered this skill. I am proficient, accurate, and I am

comfortable teaching others how to do this skill.
