Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) has grown in the past years and continuation of its growth is expected. Studies show that there are some difficulties that a novice nurse experience as they transition to APRN. (Hill, L. *& Sawatzky, J. 2011). The transition is also stressful for the nurse practitioner, thus making the NP feel inadequate, overwhelmed and incompetent. Fortunately, there are steps that can help this transition run smoothly.

Rhetoric is an important analytical tool in comprehending the message of a text while conducting research. Recent research of learning styles has turned out a wide range of facts, figures, and statistics. By studying rhetoric, a researcher can better identify unbiased sources.

Mentorship is the key to every apprentice’s development and success. The mentor represents the connection between parent and their child, teacher and student, doctor and patient, god and man. The function of the mentor is to prepare the apprentice to overcome and face the unknown, to accept the adventure. The mentor can either be a wise women or man who leads the apprentice to the duty he or she was destined to complete. In both stories, The Road, and The Last of us, mentorship ultimately leads to the apprentice's heightened independence, as the impact of the mentor, the unintended learning and the obsolescence of the mentor, eventually concludes to the apprentice’s graduation, therefore, allowing him/her to pursue their journey in which they
From the perspective of a new grad nurse with no experience and a new BSN grad with previous experience from a different unit or facility, my expectations for my mentor or preceptor is the same.

My teaching philosophy stems from my belief that the gauge of a teacher 's success is how effectively the teacher prepares students, not only for present courses, but for their future professional careers. As a Nurse, I am committed to the nursing profession and I chose nursing since; nurses have the chance to a life changing event to every patient. Nurses promote Health Education, Healing and Prevention of Illness, as well as performing end of life care through a dignified death. I chose to be a nurse because I wanted to contribute to humanity, to feel that the world was in some small way, better because I was a part of it.
