Discuss the impact, you believe, this has on socialization to the nursing role.

Professional socialization relates to the manner in which we learn the roles and functions of being a nurse once we enter the healthcare system. What are some of the ways this socialization occurs in your place of employment, and do you believe it leads to effective assumption of the nursing role? This socialization occurs in a patriarchal healthcare system that still remains predominantly male physician-based. Discuss the impact, you believe, this has on socialization to the nursing role.

Need at least 2 references in APA style.

Also I did attach a source from our book that we use in the class.

Thank you very much.

Review the Rating System for the Hierarchy of Evidence for Intervention/Treatment Questions (see below link)

• Select two different peer-reviewed nursing research articles.

• Identify and summarize the levels of evidence/research presented in selected articles (i.e. Student’s selected articles).

• Discuss how an advanced practice nurse critically evaluates evidence/research through either a “quantitative methodology” – e.g. ANOVA, Pair t Test, or (Logistic/Multiple) Regession; OR a “qualitative methodology” – e.g. validity, reliability, and applicability in practice.

Include each selected article’s reference information in the initial discussion post (i.e. APA format required).

This assignment focuses on the importance of self-assessment and reflection.


Self-awareness is essential for developing leadership skills. Recognizing your own strengths, weaknesses, and values, and understanding emotional intelligence and learning styles can help you to be a more effective nurse leader.

For this assignment, you have the opportunity to take a variety of self-assessments to learn more about yourself and identify your assets and weaknesses as a leader. This will assist you in discovering how you can improve your own self-leadership skills. You will be asked to think critically about your results and submit a reflection as directed below.

Complete each of the following self-assessments. Be sure to document the results of each assessment to assist you in completing the reflection portion of the assignment below.

Self-Assessment Reflection

Becoming self-aware is an ongoing process requiring introspection. The more often people practice self-reflection, the more opportunities they have to understand their own behaviors and adapt their approaches to working with other people, which can improve both your own and other’s abilities to meet their professional goals.

In a 750-1,000 word reflective essay, address the following:

Briefly summarize the results of each self-assessment.
Identify the leadership style that closely aligns to your philosophy of care, and explain what appeals to you about that style.
Reflect on how you might incorporate elements of that particular style as you exercise leadership in a practice or health care organization setting.
Discuss any particular areas for improvement the assessments helped you identify and some steps for improving your leadership capabilities.
You are required to cite three to five sources to complete this assignment. Sources must be published within the last 5 years and appropriate for the assignment criteria and nursing content.
