The guidelines set by the NP’s Core competencies involves educational programs for nurse practitioner and are referred to as essentials behaviors for all NPs (The National Organization of Nurse Practitioner, ([NONPF],2017). As a future NP, this course has echoed the importance to critically examine information given by finding evidence to support and manage care for the individual or the population, which I will apply to my practice. This, in turn, will offer better treatment plan and optimize better patient outcome. Using the differential diagnosis to pinpoint the best possible diagnosis for individuals has helped me to use critical thinking about my patient and to find the appropriate plan of care. Integrating humanities and sciences in nursing is important and allow individuals to enhance their knowledge and critical thinking skills in their nursing practice.
Mastering these competencies will not only lend to success as an advance practice nurse, but also as a military leader. The ability to “Demonstrate leadership in the synthesis, utilization and evaluation of all interdisciplinary information to promote quality improvement in a health care environment” is vital when interacting with executive leadership. The information presented to key leadership must be supported by evidence based data as it will drive decisions for the organization. Regardless of if it is related to Army Medicine, or planning war fighting missions this principle will hold true in any military specialty. The second competency that resonated with me was the ability to “Demonstrate the use of informatics methodologies to advocate for patient autonomy, dignity and rights and in policy development that would support both the patient and the institution.” I am passionate about advocacy.
There are a few different ways a nurse is able to keep current on policies that impact their practice. First, continuing nursing education (CNE) is one of the primary ways to keep current. “CNE is defined as programs beyond the basic nursing preparation that are designed to promote and enrich knowledge, improve skills, and develop attitudes for the enhancement of nursing practice, thus improving health care to the public [Board Rule 216.1(12)]” (Texas Board of Nursing, 2013). Continuing nursing education is a requirement for license renewal but is also an excellent resource for finding out new evidence based practice policies. The next way to be up to date on policies would be going for certification in a nurse’s specific specialty.
My passion for nursing practice defies description; leading to the reason I am opting to pursue a higher level of education in nursing. The George Washington University School of nursing has one of the highly ranked master’s programs in the country, which offers a competitive curriculum and highly defined leadership skills that integrates technology into learning. It is therefore my desire to pursue an advance education at this facility because it prepares practitioners to become great clinicians ready to solve real-world clinical problems. Moreover, the opportunity to pursue a degree in this facility will afford me the ability to be a competent and highly efficient family nurse practitioner; that will serve the community and mostly the underserved. I am the last child in a family of eight that has aspired to pursue my education at the graduate level.

This paper will explore the job description, requirements, and salary expectation, including the path for a nursing assistant.
