Nursing Roles Graphic Organizer


Advanced registered nurses work in highly collaborative environments and must collaborate with interdisciplinary teams in order to provide excellent patient care. Besides knowing the role and scope of one’s own practice, it is essential to understand the role and scope of other nurse specialties to ensure effective collaboration among nurses, the organization, and other professionals with whom advanced registered nurses regularly interact.

Use the “Nursing Roles Graphic Organizer Template” to differentiate how advanced registered nurse roles relate to and collaborate with different areas of nursing practice. Compare your future role with one of the following: nurse educator; nurse leader; family nurse practitioner; acute care nurse practi tioner; graduate nurse with an emphasis/special ty in public health, health administration , business, or informatics ; clinical nurse specialist; doctor of nursing practice. Indicate in the appropriate columns on the template which roles you ai-e comparing.

Make sure to compare the following areas of practice in your graphic organizer:

  1. Ethics
  2. Education
  3. Leadership
  4. Public Health
  5. Health Care Administration
  6. Informatics
  7. Business/Fina.nee
  8. Specialty (e.g., Family, Acute re)
