Abstract: In this paper, we first introduce the concept of single elements in a module. A systematic study of single elements in the Alg$ \mathcal{L}$-module $ \mathcal{U}$ is initiated, where $ \mathcal{L}$ is a completely distributive subspace lattice on a Hilbert space $ {\mathcal H}$. Furthermore, as an application of single elements, we study module isomorphisms between norm closed Alg$ \mathcal{N}$-modules, where $ \mathcal{N}$ is a nest, and obtain the following result: Suppose that $ \mathcal{U}, \mathcal{V}$ are norm closed Alg$ \mathcal{N}$-modules and that $ \Phi: \mathcal{U}\rightarrow\mathcal{V}$ is a module isomorphism. Then $ \mathcal{U}=\mathcal{V}$ and there exists a non-zero complex number $ \lambda$ such that $ \Phi (T)=\lambda T, \forall T\in\mathcal{U}$.
