Virtual Post-Conference

How to Integrate and Leverage Professional Identity in Nursing Into Your Practice

Friday, 4 August 2023

1:00-5:00 p.m. (1300-1700)

Professional Identity in Nursing is a “sense of oneself, and in relationship with others, that is influenced by characteristics, norms, and values of the nursing discipline, resulting in an individual thinking, acting, and feeling like a nurse.”

This session will 1) discuss the development of an action plan for naming and shaping professional identity formation in nursing practice, education, and policy that includes competencies, essential elements, and exemplars to foster professional identity formation in nursing based on the best available evidence, 2) explore the critical need to form a professional identity in nursing and the evidence on how nurse educators can foster professional identity in nursing students at the undergraduate and graduate levels, and 3) describe the vision for the future of the International Society for Professional Identity in Nursing as it aligns with the four pillars of professional identity: education, practice, policy development, and regulation.
