In this CPE, you will experience the role of a graduate degree prepared nurse in three phases:

• Phase 1: You will create a guide to prepare for an interview with a nurse executive.
• Phase 2: You will interview a nurse executive, evaluate your interviewing performance, and examine lessons learned during the interview.
• Phase 3: You will synthesize the interview experience through an executive summary of key points on the characteristics, competencies, primary responsibilities, education, experience, and skills required for the role of a nurse executive.
