Nursing - Clinical Assessment Enhancement
Nursing Assessment on Pinterest | Surgical Nursing, Nursing
The Competency Assessment & Enhancement for Nurses (CAEN) is designed for nurses who wish to update and/or enhance their nursing practice skills. The CAEN has 3 components; a self-assessment, an OSCE and multiple choice exam. The self-assessment is emailed to students to complete at home and bring to their appointment. The individualized assessment of nursing knowledge and skills is done in the simulation lab as if the student were caring for a patient on a medical/surgical unit in an acute setting. The multiple choice exam is at entry level practice with reasonable working level of knowledge. Based on the assessment outcomes, areas for practice enhancement are identified and recommendations regarding educational support are provided.
Please note: Applicants intending to register for Consolidated Clinical (PNUR 1130) are required to show proof of English proficiency. Please see the Consolidated Clinical website for full details.
The CAEN Assessment are held every Wednesday by appointment only. Appointments are confirmed once registration has been received. Applicants will be contacted via email to book their appointment once the registration paperwork has been received. Once the appointment is confirmed, an email notification will be sent that includes details for the appointment and the self assessment. The individualized simulation assessment (OSCE) takes 1.5 hours to complete. Please wear your nursing uniform for the simulation assessment. Candidates are allotted 3 hours to complete the multiple choice exam.
The CAEN Assessment is conducted at KPU's Langley campus in the south building.
The fee for the CAEN Assessment is $750 plus GST.

What is the Braden scale assessment in nursing?
The Braden Scale is a tool used to assess the skin for
sensitivity, moisture, and other categories of the skin's health.
The resulting "score" (from 6 - 23) shows the risk a patient has to
getting bed sores (pressure ulcers). The lower the score, the
higher the risk of getting pressure ulcers. Usually a score of 19
or higher means there is very little risk.
