This presentation describes Professional Role Identity Formation Theory as a theoretical explanation of professional role identity formation. It advances knowledge about the process by which individuals become attracted to professional work and the discipline of nursing. It provides structure and process for exploring the source of one’s professional role clarity and for developing a professional practice based on a well-grounded understanding of professional role expectations and obligations. The professional role clarity lens addresses the internal and external influences that can impact career decisions.
