Discussion Reflection Response – Core Competencies
Post your complete response to the discussion questions in the Discussion Area by the due date assigned.
Competencies are there to help APN’s to practice at an evolved level. This week we will reflect on the competencies required to be an APN.
Transitioning from the professional nursing role (RN) to advanced practice nursing role (APN) requires learners to intentionally reflect on what they know and what they need to know. Becoming familiar with the expected core competencies will help you understand the practice behavior expectations. In this week’s reflection discussion, choose at least 1 core competencies from the APN role you have choose to become.
- Reflect on your past experiences in nursing and consider how the role change to APN may challenge your knowledge and skills?
- Discuss on least 2 expectations/outcomes of your identified competency that you think you have met from your past nursing experiences?
- Discuss at least 2 expectations/outcomes of the competency that you have yet to meet from your past nursing experiences?
- Reflect on actions you plan to take to further develop your thinking and skills on your identified competency as it applies to the advanced practice nurse role.
