Situation: You've graduated from a nursing program with a Master of Science in Nursing, and you're interviewing for your first job. There are many applicants for this position, and the competition is stiff.

Include an explanation about how you would plan to implement the role of the advanced generalist (starting out as a beginner nurse) in this setting. Include exs from attached articles.
