Critical thinking and holistic care for every patient that I encounter during my tenure as an APN is my goal and I feel that during this course I have been able to develop these two skills. The case studies really made me think of how I could treat each patient using evidence based practices. My goal for each of those patients as will be my goal for each of my future patients will be to treat them holistically. I must always keep in mind to be culturally competent keeping in mind that must be mindful of my patients� special needs. As an APN I must uphold nursing standards of care at all times.
