Findings from this study of 54 subjects who used the BKAT-3 in their professional practice indicate that it is being used most frequently in orientation programs conducted in critical care units, and that content and scores of the BKAT have resulted in changes in those programs. Scores are also being used for placement of nurses with previous critical care experience. In addition, findings from this study and from the literature indicate that research continues to be conducted using scores on the BKAT as a dependent variable, and that moderate to moderately high correlations exist between intended and actual use of the BKAT.
