    00:00 Welcome back, everyone.

    00:02 As we all know, advances in health care in nursing occur frequently.

    00:06 Therefore, professional development is a necessary requirement to remain current or contemporary in nursing practice.

    00:13 One effective way to accomplish this is through professional organizations.

    00:17 Professional development is a vital phase of lifelong learning in which nurse is engaged to develop and maintain confidence, enhance professional nursing practice, and support achievement of career goals.

    00:28 Now professional organizations can have a broad focus such as the American Nurses Association or the National League for Nursing.

    00:36 They can also have a specific focus.

    00:38 It can be focused on a disease process such as diabetes, renal, cardiac.

    00:43 It can focus on health care settings such as a hospital, a clinic, or surgical area.

    00:49 It can also focus to an age, such as pediatrics or geriatrics.

    00:54 And, finally, it can also focus to advance practice, such as a clinical nurse specialist, a nurse executive, or even a nurse educator.

    01:02 So the benefits of professional nursing organizations, one, unites nurses with peers providing a much younger voice in the political arena on local state and national levels.

    01:12 It provides nurses with continuing education, certification opportunities, role related competencies, and educational conferences.

    01:20 It promotes and encourages the use of evidence-based practice to its members.

    01:24 It offers the opportunity to network with nursing colleagues from around the globe.

    01:28 And, finally, it connects nurses with potential career mentors or professional experts who can help advance knowledge and skills.

    01:35 So, remember, changes in health care occur almost daily aligning with a nursing organization that supports a specialty or population of practice, positions nurses to be on the forefront of practice changes.

    01:48 So what do we learn today? We learned professional development helps nurses develop and maintain competencies, enhance professional nursing practice, and support achievement of career goals.

    01:58 We learned that professional nursing organizations may have a broad or a specific focus.

    02:03 And, finally, the benefits of being part of a professional organization include uniting with peers, engaging a contemporary professional development, networking with colleagues, and providing support to one another through mentoring.

    02:15 I hope you've enjoyed today's video on professional organization.

    02:19 Thanks so much for watching.
