Over the course of my MSN program, I have transformed into skilled professional nurse. Throughout my progression of my studies, each class reinforced my critical thinking skills and knowledge. The course work nurtured me into a competent professional nurse with a strong ethical and moral values required to make critical clinical decision. Overall, the course offered me a holistic approach on what nursing practice entails as well as the impact of advanced nursing practice. The program helped me to develop excellent communication skills as well as interprofessional skills and now I can develop precise, thorough sbar reports which articulate the activities of the interdisciplinary team. Interprofessional team collaboration is associated with improved patient outcomes (Morton et al. 2017). Moreover, the course allowed me to develop my critical thinking abilities as well as clinical reasoning which are very instrumental in nursing practice.The program helped me to learn to provide compassionate and patient centered care. It nurtured my leadership skills which I apply effectively delegate tasks persuade members of my team in research studies. I use my leadership skills to develop collaborative communication and rapport with interprofessional team. The knowledge of clinical research has strengthened my knowledge base in provision of nursing care to special groups in the society including the pediatric and geriatric patients. Also, my MSN program broadened my knowledge base of information technology and nursing information. With advancement in technology, health information system has been digitalized and data is stored in electronic health records (EHRs) (Simpson, 2015). Gone are the days when healthcare providers used record patient health information in hand written charts. My knowledge of nursing informatics has enable to document and access healthcare information while safeguarding and protecting patient information. These competences helped me to see an overall positive transformation in my career since the onset of my professional journey as a registered nurse.ReferencesMorton, P. G., Fontaine, D., Hudak, C.
