Listening Profile

INSTRUCTIONS: Effective listening is one of the most important skills we should all possess! Mastering the art of listening to both what people mean, and what they say, will profoundly impact your personal and professional success.

This 40 item test (about 10 minutes) is designed to measure how well you listen. Using your mouse, click on the response that best describes you in the following statements. The answer options are as follows:

  • NV = Never applies to me
  • RA = Rarely applies to me
  • SM = Sometimes applies to me
  • OF = Often applies to me

We have also included 4 demographic questions for research purposes. We are interested in seeing whether gender, type of nurse, experience and work environment are related to listening skills. Remember that this is a totally anonymous test, and there are NO right or wrong answers, so please respond as accurately as possible.

Once you have completed all the test items, you will be able to see your listening score and some suggestions on how to improve your listening skills.
