If I want to describe something in a sentence like:

We believe that doing X is worthwhile.

In particular I mean can I use worthwhile without following it with a noun like endeavor or something else.

    Cambridge dictionary has this example in "worthwhile": The time and expense involved in keeping up to date with all the changes has been worthwhile.

Yes. Worthwhile, like most adjectives (not all) can be used predicatively as well as attributively.
