This course includes a project with three parts. Each part builds off prior knowledge to help you create your nurse professional identity.
In the first part, you examine the role of the nurse and scope of practice, which will help you identify the nurses’ role.
In the second part, you examine the standards of nursing practice for the role you are obtaining during the nursing program, and identify your beliefs, values, motives, and experiences.
The final submission requires you to use the first two parts of your assignment to create your professional identity and identify a potential professional organization that you may join to help support your development.
Prepare a two to three page written assignment that includes the following:
Introduction to the assignment (sections of the assignment: caring, professional identity, and professional organizations/associations)
Explain your belief of caring in nursing (self, nursing, environment, and profession)
Describe your professional identity including your beliefs, values, motives, and experiences
Discuss one to two professional organizations/associations you plan to be involved in during your nursing career
Conclusion (reflect on the criteria of the assignment; caring, professional identity, and professional organizations/associations)
Use at least two credible resources to support your findings. For example, one of the resources could be the website for a professional organization or association, and another resource could be a textbook.
These resources must be integrated into the body of your paper using at least two in-text citations. Be sure to use proper APA format and style.
