Answer:

Patricia Benner created a conceptual nursing theory called, "From Novice to Expert." This concept focuses on the nurse's ability to acquire knowledge and skills without committing to one specific theory. Benner's concept explores the nurse's journey through acquiring knowledge throughout his or her career, explaining that nursing is the extension of knowledge through research and knowledge is gained through clinical opportunities and experiences. The journey is marked by five stages, including novice, advanced beginner, competent, proficient, and expert. Instead of only applying book knowledge to clinical situations and experiences, nurses take academic learning and couple that learning with experiential real-life learning, modifying plans of care for patients as necessary. This concept allows nurses to draw on previous experiences in nursing to create more positive patient experiences, promote optimal patient outcomes, and allow for the nurse to promote the holistic care of the patient.

Answer:

Writing in APA format allows the author to construct and establish consistency in his or her writing, maintaining a narrowed focus on the topic at the center of the writing. APA formatting allows the author to concisely organize ideas and deliver consistently structured arguments that achieve the purpose of the writing. The ability to write in APA formatting establishes credibility for the writer, pursuing a standard of writing that has been deemed superior in its relation to research and academia.
