This may be someone you work with, someone you interface with on your unit, a mentor or a leader in the field. If you are a CRNA student, it could be one of your practicing faculty members in the Jefferson program and/or someone you know in a hospital or outpatient setting. If you interview a faculty member here at the Jefferson College of Nursing or at any other college or university, they must be practicing clinically in their area of certification/expertise.
Once you select the person you would like to interview, you must request their curriculum vitae (CV) to submit with the paper.

4. What is the best advice or "PEARL of wisdom" that you could give to a novice and/or potential master’s prepared nurse?
5. What interaction/intervention with a patient or organization that you participated in made you think you made a difference because of your role?
In your paper you are asked to present a synthesis for each of the 5 interviewee responses.

Peer-reviewed literature is to be used to support concepts/themes/perspectives identified in the synthesis of all 5 question responses in your paper.
