What does the evidence say about the benefit of an LPN obtaining their RN?
The roles of an LPN and RN are similar, yet different, which is the basis of your placement here in this LPN Bridge Program at St Vincent’s College. In order to better understand the reasoning of your transition and knowledge of your potential new nursing role, you are to write a two (2) page reflection. Within this reflection, please include: two (2) reasons for your transition based on evidence, and describe three (3) differences in the role of an LPN compared to the role of a RN. As you construct your reflection, keep these questions in mind: What does the evidence say about the benefit of an LPN obtaining their RN? How will you practice differently as an RN? How will your transition from an LPN to a RN impact your delivery of patient-centered care? Your reflection must include at least 2 evidence-based sources (nursing journal articles or a book) that are NO more than 5 years old since publication. The evidence-based practice nursing articles will be incorporated into your reflection as back up evidence. No direct quotes should be used in the reflection; APA format entails the writer to paraphrase quotes/topic points and cite them appropriately within the text and on the reference page. Please refer to Owl Purdue website, or an APA Manual for more assistance. The reflection must be in APA format to receive full credit and a passing grade (8 or above) for this assignment, it must include: a title page, the body of your paper, and a reference page- four (4) pages in total length will be handed in.
