In terms of the NP core competencies, this course has taught me about leadership as a future nurse practitioner. What was particularly eye opening for me was the lesson and discussion about how to deal with ethical and moral issues regarding other members of the healthcare
team in our future roles. I had to shift my way of thinking, from being a bedside nurse at the “bottom of the totem pole” to an NP and apply what we learned to those sticky situations. Throughout, I found it reassuring that we discussed future encounters with interdisciplinary providers that may question or try to push back on our role as NPs. This course has given me to tools necessary to analyze why nurse practitioners are good and necessary-- a large part because we will expand access for many underserved areas and populations (Pennsylvania Coalition of Nurse Practitioners, 2016). I thank each of you and Dr Romeo very much for a great class. Jinfae References Pennsylvania Coalition of Nurse Practitioners. (2016).
