Hello. I am in a MSN-FNP program. We have been drilled over and over on the core competencies of APN's: direct clinical practice, expert coaching and guidance, consultation, research, clinical and professional leadership, collaboration and ethical decision making. I am sure you have heard of these concepts before.
My question is this. I am still in the program. However, I have been asked my the nurse educator at my hospital where I work as an RN, to make an educational presentation for the unit on PD after I saw some other RN's teaching each other the incorrect techniques of the procedure. The educator asked me to present the topic because I am competent in it and it will apply towards a clinical ladder at my RN job. I also figured this falls into the direct clinical practice and expert coaching and guidance categories. This is not going to count for any credit for my MSN program, but I was wondering when I put my name on the presentation, is it acceptable to follow it by, MSN candidate? If I put MSN candidate, I figured I could place it in a portfolio for the future when I am job hunting for a NP position. Or should I only put BSN since that is my offical licensed credential at this moment? Any input would be appreciated.
