NURS 6565 Week 1 Assignment: Self-Assessment of my Clinical Skills

Self-Assessment of my Clinical Skills

Family nurse practitioner students (FNPS) need to do a self-assessment because it will give them the opportunity to review what they have learned during the program, evaluate their clinical skills, and develop the appropriate goals before finishing the nurse practitioner (NP) program. It is vital that they identify their areas of strength and develop a plan to maintain them and recognize their areas of weaknesses and find ways to deal with them and improve them. Many FNPS are lacking some of the essential clinical skills, and they need to create a plan to acquire them before finishing the NP program. By doing the self-assessment, they can do something to enhance the areas that need some work and possibly start thinking about the contributions that they can make to improve the nursing occupation. The purpose of this paper is to identify at least three strengths, why I consider them, and what to do to maintain them, three weaknesses and how to tackle them, three clinical skills needed and how to master them before finishing the NP program. Plus, analyze the history of advanced practice registered nurses (APRN) and the developing role of my specialty area and what contributions I plan to make to improve the nursing occupation.
