Data on the critical and distinctive skills necessary for those working in the Psychiatric Nurse field from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Psychiatric Nurse majors need many skills, but most especially Reading Comprehension. The revealed comparative advantage (RCA) shows that Psychiatric Nurse majors need more than the average amount of Science, Operations Analysis, Service Orientation, Social Perceptiveness, Coordination, Learning Strategies, Instructing, Active Learning, Operation Monitoring, Persuasion, Monitoring, Time Management, Judgment and Decision Making, Critical Thinking, Active Listening, Speaking, Writing, Reading Comprehension, Complex Problem Solving, Management of Personnel Resources, Negotiation, Systems Evaluation, Operation and Control, Systems Analysis, Mathematics, Quality Control Analysis, Management of Material Resources, Troubleshooting, Installation, Management of Financial Resources, Technology Design, Programming, Equipment Selection, Equipment Maintenance, and Repairing.
These two visualizations, one a radial chart and one a bar chart, show the same information, a rating of how necessary the following skills are for Psychiatric Nurse majors. Toggle between "value" and "RCA" to see the absolute rating of that skill (value) and the revealed comparative advantage (RCA), or how much greater or lesser that skill's rating is than the average. The longer the bar or the closer the line comes to the circumference of the circle, the more important that skill is. The importance of Science is very distinctive for majors, but the Reading Comprehension, Active Learning, Active Listening, Critical Thinking, Service Orientation, Speaking, Social Perceptiveness, Coordination, Writing, Monitoring, Judgment and Decision Making, Complex Problem Solving, Instructing, Learning Strategies, Time Management, Persuasion, Science, Systems Evaluation, Operations Analysis, Systems Analysis, Negotiation, Management of Personnel Resources, Mathematics, Operation Monitoring, Quality Control Analysis, Management of Material Resources, Operation and Control, Management of Financial Resources, Troubleshooting, Technology Design, Programming, Installation, Equipment Selection, Equipment Maintenance, and Repairing are the three most important skills for people in the field.
