In your post (intended to provide a clear and thorough answer), be sure to
- identify the AACN BSN Essential that you have selected by name and number;
- explain why you selected this Essential; and

Professor’s Post: As our course comes to a close, please reflect on the knowledge you have gained during this course. The AACN Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Nursing Practice (2008) and the Massachusetts Department of Higher Education Nursing Initiative (2016) nursing core competencies have helped set the stage for your future BSN courses (Chamberlain College of Nursing, 2018). The knowledge and understanding you have gained from these resources will help shape and guide your practice as a professional nurse. For this week, focus your attention on the AACN Essentials of Baccalaureate Education for Professional Nursing Practice, but I encourage you to use both of these resources during your future coursework and during your practice as a professional nurse.
