    Title of Paper
    (Centered and Bolded – should be the same as title on page 1 – title page)
    Provide an introduction to your topic and a purpose statement. Generally, an introduction paragraph is short; around 1-2 paragraphs. Do not label the para using “Introduction” as the heading; the paper title at the top of the first page acts as a Level 1 heading. Your introduction should provide a BRIEF overview of what you will cover in this paper, which is a general statement on scope of practice, competencies, and leadership. Include a purpose statement, which describes the purpose of the paper and summarizes the topics that will be discussed and the goal of the paper. It tells the reader what to expect in the paper and what the focus will be. Your purpose statement should be 1 sentence.
    Advanced Practice Nurse Scope of Practice
    (Level 1 Heading: Centered, Bold, Title Case Heading)
    Research the nurse practice act and APN scope of practice guidelines in your state and describe the following requirements of your state. Use your own words. One scholarly source needed for this section. This is a big part of your paper. Be thorough in your discussion. Once you are done writing this- you should know exactly what you are required to do to get your license in your state, what you need to do each year to maintain it, how much it will cost, what authority you have to practice in your state. A few sentences on each is not enough. You may use resources from your state board of nursing or professional organizations.
    Educational Requirements (Level 2 heading: Flush left, Bold, Uppercase and Lowercase Heading)
    Start paragraph under heading and indented. Descriiption, educational preparedness and work environment.
    License Requirements (Level 2 heading)
    Start paragraph under heading and indented.How to you obtain your license, how much does it cost? What do you need to maintain for your license?
    Regulatory Requirements (Level 2 heading)
    Start paragraph under heading and indented. How are you regulated as an NP in your state? Do you need to keep special certifications? How often? How much do they cost? Is there more than one option?
    Practice Authority (Level 2 heading).
    Start paragraph under heading and indented. Describe whether your state allows full, limited, or restricted NP practice. Be detailed in what you are allowed to do
    Prescriiptive Authority (Level 2 heading)
    Start paragraph under heading and indented. What will you be allowed to prescribe? What do you need to do to maintain your preceptive authority? Do you have to maintain a separate license/certificate?
    Nurse Practitioner Core Competencies (Level 1 Heading)
    Review the National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties (NONPF) Core Competencies and describe TWO competency areas where you believe you are personally strong and TWO competency areas where you have opportunities for growth. Use at least one scholarly source for this section. You may use the NONPF competencies link in your readings for Week 2. Use second level headings as follows:
    Competency Areas That are Personally Strong
    Competency Areas Where There is Room for Growth
    Scholarly Activities to Help Achieve NP Competencies
    Scholarly activities include: writing a research article, participating in research, attending a conference in an area to improve, joining a nursing organization, etc. Finding a mentor as a new NP is not a scholarly activity- YOU being a mentor is. Discuss how these activites will help you grow in the competency areas where there is room for growth.
    Leadership Skills (Level 1 Heading)
    Analyze three leadership skills (not leadership styles- refer to lesson) required to lead as an NP within complex systems as well as two strategies to help you develop NP leadership skills. Use at least one scholarly source. Use second level headings as follows:
    Three Leadership Skills Required to Lead in Complex Systems
    Each of the three leadership skills should be discussed thoroughly and discuss why they are important for an NP.
    Two Strategies to Help Develop NP Leadership Skills
    Discuss how these strategies will help to develop the leadership skills. Do not just list them.
    Conclusion (Level 1 Heading)
    Provide a conclusion, including a brief summary of what you discussed in the paper. Do not introduce new information into your conclusion paper. A good rule of thumb is to have a sentence for each main idea/criteria area you discussed in the paper. Your reader should be able to read your conclusion parapgrah and have a good understanding of what your paper covered.
