How do I add a Specialty in BlueSky?

Specialties are the different types of work/jobs your caregivers do; ex. RN-Labor & Delivery, CNA-Sitter, etc. System Admins can edit, add, or inactivate Specialties.

1. Click Admin > Setup > Specialties. Specialties are tied to Degrees, which are created in the Degrees tab. For more information on creating Degrees, refer to this article:

2. You'll see a list of pre-populated Specialties (if you're a new client) or existing Specialties. You can edit, add, or inactivate the Specialties in this list.

3. To edit a Specialty, click on the name of the Specialty. 

  • Enter the name of the Specialty.
  • Select a General Specialty if applicable.
  • Link to a Profile Checklist or a Prophecy Skills Checklist if applicable. Refer to this article for more information:
  • Select Active in the Status drop-down menu.
  • Enter a Seq. No (the Specialty will display in numerical order in this list).
  • Enter an Expiration Period if applicable (this is for the skills checklist).
  • Enter a Code if applicable (typically used with payroll imports/exports).
  • Check this box if a License is required to do this job.
  • Check this box if a Skills Checklist is required to do this job.
  • Click OK.


Keep in mind:

  • Specialties are tied to Degrees. If you need to enter an Lab Tech - Specimen Collector Specialty, click on the filter and select the correct Degree.
  • You cannot enter a Specialty under two Degrees. If an RN and LPN could have the same Specialty, you can enter the Specialty under each Degree, but one must have a slightly different name.
