Today, I am glad I choose nursing because I have overcome my social fears, learn to be a team player, learn how to prioritize and most importantly learned to manage stress. Lastly, I grew as a nurse with each semester because I learned how to respect and treat each patient as a unique individual. I have also learned to put my patient safety as my priority and provide presence because I realized through my clinical experience that, sometimes that all the patients need.

Clinical Nurse Leader As today 's healthcare advances, so must the roles of today 's nurses. One new nursing role is that of the clinical nurse leader. Masters (2014) defines the clinical nurse leader as "an advanced generalist role prepared at the master 's level of education" (pg 378).

The education requirements of the clinical nurse leader build on those established in the baccalaureate nursing programs (Baernholdt and Cottingham 2011).
