As many of APN’s job scope are overlapping with the traditional medical role, frequently, they are struggled to articulate what it is as nursing-based care providers that they uniquely bring to their patients (Dunphy & Winland-Brown, 2006). Caring is a word often associated with nursing, and it is one of the symbolic characters to differentiate APN from medical team.

Abstract Part of my assignment was to interview a nurse who was to have more experience than myself and who I admired for their professionalism and competency. First I thought, I’ve been a nurse for thirty-one years myself so my choices will be somewhat limited. Then I thought I would choose someone who had been in my specialty (cardiology), longer than I, but then again that was a dilemma because I have been in cardiology for twenty-five years. After great thought I chose a nurse who had worked in various hospitals and in different aspects of nursing. I had the opportunity to interview a registered nurse who I have trained in the past when she was new to our department, but now I admire and view as a mentor.
