On This Episode:
We’re excited to welcome DNP candidates Morgan Mahle, CRNA and Rachael Ellis, CRNA to present their doctoral project on the show, which proposes the implementation of MMI or other non-cognitive testing tools into the admissions process. Join us to learn more about what the MMI process accomplishes and why non-cognitive testing might be able to help differentiate candidates in a highly competitive pool.
Our Beyond the Mask Doctoral Committee has taken submissions from doctoral projects from across the country and this is one that we choose to feature. Their project started with an interest in the MMI and its potential use in the NKU admission process. Since they were also on the admissions committee, they were in a unique position to make this their DNP project. They saw first-hand that faculty expressed difficulty in narrowing down candidates because there were so many similarities in cognitive skills and decided to explore how a non-cognitive testing tool could help further discern which candidates were most well-rounded.
Today we’ll give them a platform to share all they’ve learned while working on the project and why they think this can benefit healthcare and CRNAs in the future.
Here’s some of what we discuss in this episode:
- What is the Multiple Mini Interviews (MMI) process?
- How the stations work during the process.
- What their review focused on and the results of the literature review.
- What they found from the needs assessment they performed.
- How did they identify the non-cognitive attributes to test.

I just think that some programs keep adding these cognitive type testing or other criteria to narrow down candidates when they could possibly be utilizing something different, like the MMI or some other non-cognitive type test.
