Summary of Evaluations
My presentation was on professional issues of Advanced Practice Registered Nurses.

I invited and confirmed with four audiences, but unfortunately only two were able to attend. Fortunately two certified nursing assistant were able to attend on time and the presentation continued as planned. The two nursing assistants are interested in becoming family nurse practitioners in future.

While doing a presentation I learned personally that I need to focus on the presentation and the audience. For example, I tend to get a bit nervous and because of that I lose my concentration and that makes me stop thinking about what I’m doing and therefore I start to talk faster than I should.

Depth of Presentation The audience evaluated me as excellent on the depth of the presentation noting that the presentation was well organized with logical flow of ideas, accurate, relevant, well researched covering all the necessary information, thorough, and informative.

The audience said that at the beginning I seemed nervous and talked a bit faster, but quickly relaxed and transitioned to just right rate and the presentation flowed well. I agree with the audience as I tend to get nervous and talk fast, which makes it hard to hear the words clearly. I think that practice and preparing in addition to relaxing help to better focus and therefore presenting the speech in the right rate. The audience evaluated my presentation as easy to follow and clear and very informative.
I was also nervous about answering the questions at the end of the presentation, but I did well and this provided a perfect opportunity to respond to the audiences questions in a coherent way. I have an understanding that effective presentation is much more than just presenting my ideas or delivering a speech to my audience. It is more about skillful communication and relating to the audience whether few or large. Overall I feel that preparing and delivering the presentation has helped me build my confidence for future presentations. . I reinforced the main ideas at the conclusion of the presentation when I showed the audience a YouTube audiovisual of who can be a nurse practitioner, their role, and where they can work. The experience was positive
