Introduction Nursing Practitioner Core Competencies create a structure that prepare nurse practitioners to be excellent providers in an ever-changing medical world (Thomas, Crabtree, Delaney, Dumas, Kleinpell, Logsdon, & et al., 2011). Through the context of nursing theory, the competencies give further insight in the role they play in structuring holistic patient care plans for individuals and communities. This paper will review different aspects of varying nursing theories to provide context to the core competencies. Scientific Foundation Scientific foundation competencies cover the need to analyze data and translate it into knowledge, to improve nursing practices and patient outcomes (Thomas et al., 2011).

According to (Nice 2012) delivering high quality care should be at the heart of every care provider daily clinical practice.

All of these topics are essential for an individual reviewing the RN’s profile, because they give the interviewer a basic generalization of a possible candidate for their position. The interviewer can get a good grasp on how long an individual stays at a job, what specialty of nursing they’ve been in, where they went to school, years of experience and why they wanted to go into nursing in the first place. All these descriptions about an individual will lay down the foundation for an interviewer to get know the RN. Next, I would like to discuss the importance for clinical experience to be included in the portfolio. The Clinical experience essentially displays to an interviewer how well a RN documents, how they performed during clinical and how they took care of their patient.
I decided to attend Chamberlain College of Nursing (CCN) because of its excellent structure of Master 's Degree Nursing program. The proof lies in the availability of variety classes which I believe would undoubtedly prepare me for my advanced practice in nursing, for example, the course of Nursing Informatics which I did not find in any other reviewed online curriculum. I feel confident that this program will prepare me for this new professional endeavor at the same time realizing the importance that every nurse with master 's degree education, per the American Association of Colleges of Nursing (2011) must acquire the fundamental principles related to the knowledge and skills. I am very encouraged to see that CCN is reflecting these
My childhood initiated a desire to help prevent and mitigate injury or illness; this soon flourished into an interest in the health care field. To help narrow my choices I explored as many science courses as I could. Talking with health care professionals and reading nursing textbooks I found in my aunt’s house piqued my interest in the nursing field and patient care. From there, I completed a Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) course which further solidified my decision. Now, I am fully invested in becoming a nurse.
The Nurse Practice Act defines nursing as diagnosing and treating humans in response to actual or potential health problems, through services such as case findings, health teachings, and provision of care supportive to the restoration of life and well- being. All of which must be done in respect to human dignity. This code of ethics allows patients, families and communities to live with physical, emotional, social and spiritual well - being (Code of Ethics, 2005, p.7 ). As a practicing nurse of 15 years , I believe my values and background have both shaped my passion for nursing and directed my professional career. My philosophy of nursing practice encompasses respect, compassion, candor, honesty, flexibility, privacy, culture, knowledge- teaching and learning which is a continuum.

404). A competent nurse can “begin to see his or her actions in terms of long-range goals or plans” (Benner, 1982, p. 404). I believe in my nursing career I have reached this stage. When a patient comes in with a specific complaint, I can anticipate what will happen and what the doctor will order even before the doctor comes in to see the patient. For example I know a person that has a complaint of chest pain will need an electrocardiogram, troponin, cardiac monitor and depending on the patient medications, aspirin.
With the current growth in health care, Advance practice nurses (APNs) will be taking up leadership roles, collaborating with other health care professionals to improve health care access and promote quality care. (Zaccagnini and White, 2014). American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN) is recommending all Advance practice nurses (APNs) to obtain their Doctor of Nursing Practice(DNP) degree. (AANC, 2006). According to the Institute of Medicine (IOM), 2011 report Advanced practice nurses in the United States must be highly educated to provide high-quality care, take up
