This class has furthered my knowledge and leadership abilities, as I prepare to enter the advanced practice nursing profession. The role of a nurse practitioner and leader are united with a common goal to influence others, creating change, and patient advocacy. A leader should have a vision for the future with the courage to make that concept happen. Healthcare is always changing, which is one aspect of nursing that keeps it exciting. However, this also brings about more responsibility. It is essential the NP stays up-to-date with best practices, education, and legal rules and regulations to grow professionally and keep their license. This class helps prepare students for life after graduation; personally, working through the program outcomes, the essentials, and the leadership competencies have better prepared me to become an NP. This course has solidified the fact that NPs must stay on top of what is happening within the profession so that they can ensure their practice is up to standards and advocate for the advancement of the profession. This course meets program outcome #5 because it pushes students to think about the future, ultimately developing a plan. Sometimes students can get caught up in school, never thinking about what happens after graduation until they graduate. This course prepares you to develop a professional development plan (PDP) along with a curriculum vitae (CV). It is beneficial to make your PDP and CV while still in school because professors can help critique it. I know I appreciate a professor’s professional opinion first so that I can modify the CV before giving it to potential employers.
