I became familiar with the Nurse Practice Act for my state and the limitations on my future scope of practice. Physicians and nurse practitioners (NP) must work together to meet the needs of primary care in this country. Approximately 40 million new citizens have access to healthcare and are in need of primary care providers (Johnson, 2013). Primary care practices should be open to developing collaborative, collegial practices for an efficient, high-quality healthcareprogram that is desperately needed in America (Johnson, 2013). The content of this class focused on leadership competencies. The weekly discussions gave all of us the opportunity to think about ethical issues that may arise in the healthcare environment. Acting professionally and taking the time to gather all of the
facts is always best practice to resolve issues appropriately. Formulating my professional development plan gave me the chance to take a look at myself and my goals for the future. Researching local and national professional organizations caused me to become interested in joining the American Association of Nurse Practitioners as a student. Nurses should join nursing organizations to press for changes in the system of healthcare for our country. All in all, I have thoroughly enjoyed this leadership class and am looking forward to the next step in my journey to become a NP. JenicaReferenceJohnson, J. (2013).

Program outcome #5 is about developing a plan for growth. The week 7 project had me looking into several things about my future and got me thinking more in-depth about my plan. Beforethis class I was primarily focused on my plan to graduate. I had thought very little about anything after taking boards. Yeah I have thought about where I want to work, but nothing about marketing, networking, contract negotiations, or the many other things we covered. The leadership competencies of the NP Core Competencies have definitely been covered well in this class. Being amilitary combat veteran I know a thing or two about leadership and I know how to treat people to make them follow your leadership, but this class opened my eyes to other aspects such as conflict
resolution. How to handle hostile workplaces, dishonest staff members, and critical physicians.
