What is the PBDS Nursing Test?
The PBDS nursing test is the Performance Based Development System. Learn what nurses can expect from this test, now implemented in over 500 US hospitals nationwide.

The PBDS nursing test:
- All assessment components require the employee to critically think – multiple choice are NOT used
- Tests on general clinical knowledge and medication administration
- Compares individual responses to criteria and performance standards developed by the hospital.
- Evaluates critical thinking abilities
- Evaluates Interpersonal communication skills
- Evaluates technical skills
In registered nurse jobs, the road to optimal achievement is paved with the intention of using critical thinking to get the results you need. “Critical thinking is the difference between success and failure,” says American Traveler’s Nurse Coordinator, Debbie Bacurin, R.N. “Working smart as well as hard leads to better career fulfillment and healthier patients.”
Reasons successful registered nurses are solid critical thinkers:
- Healthcare today isn’t what it once was and continues to change.
- New ways of doing things sometimes create new problems, unsolvable by old methods
- Patients’ conditions are growing more complex in nature and in treatment
- There’s more consumer involvement from patients and their families.
- Registered nurse jobs take place in diverse settings, i.e. float assignments.
- Health IT is rapidly changing, requiring use of high-tech technology as part of registered nurse jobs.
- Consumers of healthcare demand to see efficiency and results for the money they spend.
- Redesigning healthcare to meet patients’ expectations cannot be done without critical thinking.
- Critical thinking skills help nurses deal with the realities of registered nurse jobs.
