This paper is based upon the Discussions regarding all Professional Organizations that occurred throughout all Modules
1) You are asked to pick any issue that was discussed in any of the Discussion Boards throughout the course – Mission and Structure, Theories/Strategic Plans, Economic Structures, Promotion, Diversity, Leadership, Management, and Change. Your issue does not have to be approved if it is one of these topics. If you would like to ‘stray’ slightly from one of these topics, you are welcome to as long as it was covered within the course/text…and you email me for approval.
2) Analyze the Points surrounding that issue (not your organization… the issue/topic) in-depth. You are looking at how these issues affect Nursing and Professionalism – Consider Current Options, Pros and Cons, Societal Issues, Promotion or Prohibition of Change, Inter- or Intra- Disciplinary Issues, and any other appropriate/pertinent points.
3) Your Paper should also include a summary discussing the role of, and perspective of, Nursing as a Profession. As this module asks… Are we a Profession Yet?
