1) As you enter your RN-BSN educational program, you are again going through a period of socialization or transformation. As you learn more about the roles of the BSN-prepared nurse, how can you use other nurses with BSNs and higher degrees to help you in your socialization or transformation? What factors are most important as you become socialized as a BSN student? What are your resources in this process? How can this process be most effective?
2) As you considered the four central concepts of professional nursing from the lesson, you thought about how each of those is incorporated into your own philosophy of nursing. Select one of those four central concepts, and explain how it is exemplified in your own philosophy of professional nursing.
