Professional Identity Assignment- Part II

Assignment Overview:

The Professional Identity Assignment considers the components and competencies needed to grow your professional identity as you begin your RN-BSN program such as a theoretical framework, ethical comportment, a commitment to demonstrate moral courage, develop emotional intelligence, clarify personal and professional values, work a mentor, and achievement of short- and long-term goals.

The Professional Identify Assignment is an APA-formatted, scaffolded assignment. This means the paper is written using APA style guidelines, and the paper is broken down into drop box submissions: Part I and Part II. Scaffolding of the assignment allows the student to review and integrate instructor feedback into the final document while developing professional communication and scholarly writing skills.
