An NP is not just a nurse or provider but a major presence in the health care field. This empowering presentation will enable acute care NPs to recognize and own the unique importance of their role in patient care. The session begins by defining powerful practice, then delves into the history and unique features of the NP role. The best practices for professional and ethical conduct are then discussed, from synergy and persistence to the NP’s commitment to continuous learning. The presentation closes with a discussion of nurse professional advisory committees (NPACs) and the ways in which NPACs can serve as drivers for the future of the medical profession.
Throughout, the session offers NP-specific guidance on developing grit, confidence, and strong habits of mind. This one-of-a-kind session will coach the participant on the following topics:
- Effective professional behavior, character, and presence
- Using the NP role to influence decision making and resource allocation
- Taking pride in the NP role
