second week we discussed the use of theory in practice and importance of how theory guides practice.We had many discussions on conflict management and the importance of being a nurse leader in the resolution. This is discussion is valuable as each of move toward new roles in nursing.Lastly, shedding light on the ongoing task of creating an all-encompassing scope and practice guideline is a goal that each of us moving forward should be interested in creating. This will lend structure to our practice, no matter where we choose to practice, and will offer true independence to practice.I have enjoyed this class tremendously and wish everyone luck as we move forward!!ReplyShow LessMolly McIntyrereply to Marsha Wiersteiner8/23/2016 9:59:33 AMRE: ReflectionHi Marsha,
As you stated in your post, we learned about the licensure, accreditation, certification, and educationdifferences. This topic was especially eye opening to me because I was under the impression it was the same across the nation which was widely incorrect. It is a shame that depending on your state ofresidence you could experience a restricted practice when others can practice the way our educationprepares us to do. Thank you for your post, I hope that you gained as much from this course as I have.

Practicing independently in the advanced role is not available in every state. Some states require physician supervision to be able to practice. Becoming part of an organization gives the APRN access to a multitude of information and access to available jobs. Over the last 8 weeks, we have learneda lot in relation to the program outcomes, MSN essentials and NP core competencies.ReplyShow LessInstructor Duncanreply to Leslie Garner8/24/2016 8:53:28 PM
RE: ReflectionLeslie,Thank you for your hard work in the course! Good luck in your future!Dr. DuncanReplyShow LessMijanou Marretta-Lewis8/22/2016 5:31:20 AMReflectionsDr. Duncan and Classmates,Personally this course was the most revealing of the entire Master’s courses thus far that opened this nurse up to the complications of an inter-professional collaboration for the Certified Nurse Practitioners in Ohio. The complexity of negotiating a contract, to finding out the details of restrictions and regulations in Ohio has been a soul searching emotional ride. Having sought out and spoke to physician friends and
