Scope Of Practice And Role Delineation For An Acute Care Nurse Practitioner.

This assignment is part of a portfolio. The Acute care Nurse Practitioner student is doing rotations in the hospital setting with a hospitalist group admitting patients and managing patients in the hospital. The paper should be 3 pages long in APA format. Please See requirements below. 

Scope of Practice Statement 5%: Your scope of practice is unique to you. Your scope of practice must include the community and specialty that you practice within and the parameters of your practice. To put it simply a scope of practice is, what you do as a nurse, who you practice with and how you go about doing that. Many nurses applying for endorsement as a nurse practitioner find this the most difficult to write. While it may be difficult to get started, once you have started you will find, as others have, that this is an opportunity to really think about your nursing practice, and reflect the skills you have and the care that you provide. A useful place to start is to read about scopes of practice in the literature. 

Role delineation SECTION 20%: The role delineation section allows the reader to identify how you will actualize each competency outlined by the National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculty (NONPF) and the AACN.  It is as unique as each student.  You may write a narrative and include supporting documents to highlight your activities.  Ultimately it shows the progression towards the program goals.
