This course includes a project with three parts. Each part builds off prior knowledge to help you create your nurse professional identity. In the first part, you examine the role of the nurse and scope of practice, which will help you identify the nurses’ role. In the second part, you examine the standards of nursing practice for the role you are obtaining during the nursing program, and you identify your beliefs, values, motives, and experiences. The final submission requires you to use the first two parts of your assignment to create your professional identity and identify a potential professional organization that you may join to help support your development.
