Running Head: APN PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN 1APN Professional Development PlanBreAnn MelagoChamberlain College of Nursing NR 510 Leadership and Role of APN
APN PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PLAN 2Introduction:The APN Professional Development Plan is made to assist with personal development such as self-acknowledgement and identity, building employability, developing potential and talents, and enhancing the quality of life by assisting with dreams and aspirations. This plan can also assist with other’s development because it takes place in an institutional context where it can offer programs, methods, techniques assessment systems, and tools that enhance human development in an organization at an individual level. This can be a plan that everyone can use but it is focuses more on personal develop in your work environment. A professional development plan is a program designed to use tools created to assist with an understanding between the employee and someone who reviews the plan on crucial developmental areas inside of an organization. The organization also needs to keep in mind how these needs are recognized and supported. My goal during this paper is to create a Professional Development Plan to help me establish a process I can use for self-development along with self-management. While developing and evolving myself as an APN it is important that I am aware of my strength and weakness. I need to learn how I can attempt to change my weaknesses into something better. This plan will also show possible opportunities that could be ahead of me. This plan will be all about the path I am going to chose to take to accomplish my goals and aspirations as I am working to advance my career, as well throughout my career.APN Scope of Practice:The scope of practice of an APN is all privileged by what the allowing licensure or certification states for each individual state. According to the American Nurses Associations (ANA), an APN scope refers to the when, what, who, why, and how of nursing practice. It will clearly state your limitations of practice, as well as capacity of pay for the services. This will discuss the treatment and evaluations you’reare able to perform or prescribe. As we know an NP is allowed to do more in their scope then the RN,

We can also now choose to become certified in a specific area or specialty and expand our scope within a certain population through extra education and competency in that area of specialty (Nardi & Diallo, 2014). To go along with the narcotic prescriptions, might as well talk about prescriptions in general.
