This calls for a change in the training processes for nurses. It is agreeable that nursing training has been undergoing several changes in the last years. Over the same period, the role of nursing has increased in some areas while reducing in others. Such changes have constantly been associated with the nursing profession, methods used in the selection of new nurses and the impacts when providing patient-based education in the traditional learning (Carr 122). The training process for nurses has been often affected by specific factors such as problems faced by teaching faculties, models used to training them, and the characteristics attributed to the career.
The path into becoming a registered nurse was a very confusing process for me because there are three entry levels of nursing, the bachelors science nursing (BSN) degree route, the associate degree (AD) route, and the diploma in nursing, which is basically a hospital based nursing school (Black, 2010, p. 60). After observing the available options and doing research of the three different programs I decided to attend an AD program at Keiser University. The reason I went this route was because in two years of nursing education it permitted me start working in the clinical setting as a nurse. On April, 2015 I graduated Keiser University Orlando, and on May 2015 I obtained my RN licensure from the state of

There should also be some form of additional education given to personnel who are demonstrating continuing difficulties with data entry (Hebda & Czar, 2013). There has been much discussion about the relevancy of standardized nursing terminology and its usage in patient care. Before the creation of standardized nursing terminology there was no accurate way to describe nursing practice (Keenan, Tschannen, & Wesley, 2008). It is estimated that eighty percent of patient care is provided by nurses making it crucial that nursing care is visible and
Ms. C. felt that she utilized her BSN degree in a multitude of ways by applying the foundational elements to her nursing practice, the administrative education with budgeting and financial needs of her department, and the effective leadership skills needed to manage the staff, physicians and the patient.

HLTEN401B- Work in the Nursing Profession Q1: Discuss how the enrolled nurse scope of practice has changed over the last two decades. The diversity of the roles of the Enrolled Nurse’s has increased; we are now able to provide a larger range of care to patients.

Transitioning from the role of senior nursing student to registered nurse, with new workplace expectations and professional accountability has become a reality shock for most NGN. This paper examines the importance of adequate orientation time to help facilitate the transition from NGN to the registered nurse role, and how it benefits not only the NGN but also health care organizations hiring NGN. Preparation for transitioning from NGN to competent RN should begin during the last year of nursing school. According to Hatler, Stoffers, Kelly, Redding and Carr (2011) Nursing school faculty need to develop ways to more accurately shape students expectations and skill regarding their abilities and to provide time and guidance for discussion and reflection related to the often overwhelming aspects of actually working as a nurse. Experiences in the workplace often prompt different priorities

Running head: Nurse Practitioner’s role as a Mentor Orlando S. Valenzuela Jr. University of North Carolina Greensboro 09/24/2012 Nurse Practioner as a Mentor Introduction: Purpose of the Paper (this should be background information on nursing roles) There has been a proliferation of roles for advanced practice nurse in the past several decades that include provider, mentor, educator, researcher, manager, and consultant roles.

The word mentor has its origin in the Greek mythology.
