Question 1.
Do the proposed essential domains and descriptors encompass professional practice at the
baccalaureate level?
The baccalaureate nurse is a nurse who is skilled with all the professional skills of the
associated degree program or diploma. The baccalaureate nurse is also well endowed in other
knowledge and skills such as humanities, community health, management in nursing, research
and social and physical sciences. These additional qualifications contribute to professional
