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. – AIQ Sep 28 '19 at 8:42

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