Practice inquiry is my other strong point. I use my clinical experience to make healthcare decisions. However, I also conduct consultation from fellow nurses or other medical practitioners when dealing with cases that new or relatively complex. Furthermore, I find myself more critical in applying the set clinical guidelines in practice as there are some cases that require tailored solutions. Through, this master’s program my inquiring characteristic has been growing as I have learned to be looking for an in-depth understanding of every care situation. Policy and Independence practice competencies present with opportunities for growth. The policy involves healthcare system decisions that are focused on the allocation of resources. I have an overall glimpse of the healthcare policy but I am yet to get sufficient knowledge on specific aspects such as legal procedures and determination of costs and quality in the health care system. Given that I have a general understanding, it forms a basis to enhance my knowledge and acquire policy competencies practically. On the other hand, independence practice competencies constitute the ability to provide care and services with no supervision or direction. Since in my experience I have never worked independently without direct or indirect supervision, these competence area has an opportunity of growing as acquire more knowledge on the management of different medical conditions and making critical decisions autonomously.

The readings will be guided by the course

Furthermore, focused personal reading equips one with the theoretical underpinnings of the competencies, which enable one to effectively apply the competencies. In the same, I will be engaging in regular clinical practice experience, which will be allowing me to translate the competencies from theory to practice. Moreover, clinical experience will give an opportunity to interact with other nurse practitioners from whom I will learn more regarding the competencies. Leadership Skills APN nurses should display high leadership skills since their roles require them to show leadership in their respective areas. In nursing, leadership is where a nurse leader influences innovation in the point-of-care and enhancement care practices at both institutional and individual level to achieve best care outcomes (Joseph & Huber, 2015). Critical thinking, communication skills, professionalism are some of the leadership skills required for nursing practitioners, which often become more vital when the NPs find themselves in complex systems.
