Preparing the paper

The following are best practices for preparing this paper:

  1. Review Chapter 30- Role Transition: Strategies      for Success in the Marketplace in

DeNisco and Barker (2015).

  1. Nurse practitioners need to take into account      the state rules and regulations that guide advanced practice. Research and      review the Nurse Practice Act and APN scope of practice guidelines in your      particular state. Identify information regarding educational requirements,      licensure and regulatory requirements, as well as practice environment      details. Review information regarding full, limited, or restricted      practice limitations as well as prescriptive authority (This is similar to      what you created in your week 1 Kaltura presentation). .
  2. Review Guidelines for APN Role Transition Using Benner’s Self-Assessment      Tool (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site..      Identify and discuss your position on Benner’s Novice to Expert      ladder. Prior to engaging in pursuit for employment, APNs should complete      a comprehensive, honest, personal assessment to identify their strengths      and weaknesses as well as their goals and objectives. Research assessment      tools, conduct a personal assessment and reflect upon your strengths,      weaknesses, goals, and objectives.
  3. To complete the transition from students to      expert nurse practitioners working in the healthcare field, graduating APN      students will need to secure their first position. Research local and      national professional organizations that advertise employment      opportunities for APNs. Identify networking and marketing strategies and      provide a rationale for your selections. Be specific.
  4. Write your Curriculum Vitae (CV) or current      resume. Refer to the template on pages 772-773 in DeNisco and Barker      (2015). Your CV / resume should not exceed 2 pages in length but will,      vary for each student. If you have not done some of the components of the      CV/resume, i.e. research, publications, presentations, then do not include      them.
  5. When concluding the paper, summarize important      aspects of the APN professional development plan.
