The Four Dimensions of Nursing Practice are as follows:

·         Nursing Practice (Practice, Ethics, Resource Utilization);

·         Professional Role-Leadership (Education/Career Development, Performance);

·         Collaboration (Collegiality, Collaboration) and

·         Scientific Inquiry (Quality of Care, Research).  NOTE:

Leadership is not one of the dimensions, but leadership principles are expected to be woven throughout the established categories.

Each of the criteria should be addressed by you citing examples (at least one) to support the qualifications standards.

One example may suffice to support all criteria under a single Dimension, but all criteria must be met…NOT just the Dimension.  As a template for your response, the following guidance is offered:
