Leadership Exemplar

During this course, you have participated in many rich discussions about the practice of nursing. In this paper, you will reflect over the discussions and select an exemplar to write about. An exemplar is an account of a situation that stands out in one’s mind because of it’s significance. The situation is packed with meaning, positive or negative, and represents an important event, rite of passage, or occurrence to the persons involved. In essence, it is a story of something that has happened to you.

In the situation you describe, you will use both the ANA Scope and Standards of Practice, Standards of Professional Performance (2010) or the ANA Code of Ethics for Nurses with Interpretive Statements (2008) to analyze the situation and it’s meaning to you as a professional nurse. There are nine standards of professional performance, use numbers from 7 to 15, which you may reference in your exemplar. You may use one standard, or several. There are 9 statements in the Code of Ethics, again, you may use one or several to analyze the situation and the meaning to you as a professional nurse.
