In your initial post, using the NONPF core competency you chose in Week 2 Choice: Core Competencies, discuss ways you as a student have or can begin to exemplify this competency. These exemplars can be from clinical experiences over the past year, course work or assignments completed in other classes, and internal (employment) and external (regional, state, national) professional activities.
In this initial post, you are asked to provide exemplars that are personal experiences. However, the rubric includes having three references. If you do not have three references that is ok; you will not be graded down on references for this discussion. However, your initial post will probably contain at least two references (one being the NONPF competency document itself and the other related to nursing practice, etc.).
