This competency would assist the new NP in continued improvement in their practice. If the new NP is open about their new role and acknowledges that time will be necessary to move to the expert phase then that is an example of taking leadership and initiative in this crucial area.

Theoretical Basis: Watson's Theory of Human Caring An advanced practice nurse (APN) to help guide professional practice and provide a working framework can use many different theories and models. Theories provide a foundation in which an APN can seek to understand patients and their problems and effectively plan interventions.
