Assignment Part 1: Developing an Academic and Professional Network NURS 6003

Academic and Professional network are important in attaining career goals. “Professional networking for nurses allows professionals to explore the field and develop a strong support system within the medical community.” (Professional networking in Nursing,” 2019).

Professional network emphasize on the development of relationships and interaction among nurses and scholar practitioners. This type of networking among medical practitioners can be attained by attending in seminars, conferences, and joining professional bodies with other specialists in higher positions in the field of healthcare. (Nursing. Org, 2019). ). According to Wofford, there are different ways one can network with others of same interest or disciplines. Majority of people tend to lean towards social media networking for easy accessibility. It involves forums that are mentioned above. Coworkers, friends and family can serve as support system/network. It is most likely that someone you know will be the link between you and your next job (Wofford, P). I was able to get my first job through my preceptor because she put in good word for me.

In conclusion, professional and academic network provide opportunities to nurses to gain experience, learn new ideas, and knowledge in ongoing nursing practices. In order for me to reach my goal and be

successful in the MSN Program as a practicing nurse, I have identified at least two academic individuals and two professionals to collaborate with me in this academic success and professional development plan assignment. This networking foundation will guide me to attain my goal to succeed in my MSN/NP program and other endeavors.

NETWORK MEMBER 1

Name: Yelena Malkamalova

Title: MSN, NP

Organization: William Osler Health System – Brampton Civic Hospital, Brampton Ontario Canada

Academic or Professional: Professional

Why I selected this individual and/or team and how they will support my success in the MSN program and as a practicing nurse:

Yelena has been a Registered nurse for over 17 years, after several years of Obstetrics experience under her belt. She went back to school to get her FNP license and certificate in mental health while working full time and raising her family. She is currently working with William Osler outpatient clinic. I met Yelena during my last clinical rotation in nursing school. She was part of the team working with final year nursing student as at that time. She is well educated and knowledgeable. She possessed strong clinical skills and gave feedback on timely manner. I learned so much from her within the 12 weeks that she was my preceptor. She was thorough in her teaching and ensured that her students practice holistically while integrating evidence based knowledge in the care we provided to all our patients. Our relationship did not stop after my practicum. I remembered she would updated me about her progress in her MSN/NP program and I was able to ask her about the NP role and education. She encouraged me to pull through when I was struggling with my health. She has supported me till I got my Registered nurse (RN) license and my first job at Credit Valley Hospital. She was excited when I informed her about my decision to start my MSN/NP with Walden University. Assignment Part 1: Developing an Academic and Professional Network NURS 6003

I have chosen Yelena Malkamalova  FNP/PMHNP because we had similar ambitions, she succeeded in fulfilling her career dream in such a short time despite many commitments, notably being a wife, a mother to two teenagers and working as an RN. She is such an inspiration and role model to me. She has been supportive and always encouraging me to pursue career advancement when I doubted myself and faced by other challenges. I am thankful for her guidance, friendship and support. I believe if I collaborate with her my MSN/NP program, it will help me in becoming a scholar practitioner, attaining my academic and professional goal.

NETWORK MEMBER 2

Name: Dr. Nurat Arolambo

Title: PMHNP, DNP

Notes: Dr. Arolambo is an advanced practice nurse practitioner, she works as a Psychiatry mental health nurse practitioner (PMHNP), precepts MSN/NP student for their practicum experience and mentors other nurses. She finished her Bachelor degree in nursing in 2011; she worked for few years in Emergency department at Brandon Hospital in Florida.

Dr Arolambo is my maternal cousin and mentor. We are very close and we call each other sisters.  She supported me throughout my nursing school and she has been a great support system for me. I chose Dr. Arolambo as one of my professional network because of her experience, work and education. She has vast knowledge in mental health and her practice is evidence based. She is very compassionate with her clients and families. I visited her at her clinic this January; I was amazed with her work ethics and interactions with her clients and staff.

I look forward to collaborating with her on my journey at Walden University in becoming a scholar practitioner like her. She will be a great resource due to her vast experience and knowledge in nursing and management. I follow her work on social media, where she uses this medium to share information with large population and not just her clients on mental health stigmatization, managing mental health and accessing resources for mental health.

NETWORK MEMBER 3

Name:  Annie Cuellar

Title: Student Success Advisor

Organization: Walden University

Academic or Professional: Academic

Why I selected this individual and/or team and how they will support my success in the MSN program and as a practicing nurse:

Notes:

I started looking into nursing school for MSN program last December. I checked and researched on many schools. Walden University was different,  I have been supported right from the first click on the school website till the moment I made my decision to fulfil my professional goal at Walden. My enrolment specialist was Wadii Fettah, he checked on me via email and telephone to ensure that I was doing well and to check on my application process. I got email that announced Anne Cellar as my Student Success Advisor, ever since then, we have been communicating via email for something as easy as picking my courses. She encouraged me to finish the Student Readiness Orientation. She mentioned to me that her team is available to support me throughout my program here at Walden in attaining my professional and academic goals.

I chose Anne Cellar as my academic network member being my Student Success Advisor; she will be my go to person in accessing Walden University resources as she and her team are part of Walden University that support student academic goals. The way my program is going now, I know there will be times that I will need to contact her and her team for assistance. I am guaranteed that Anne will be resourceful and a great support in my MSN program. I am glad that Walden University has a support system readily for students to succeed in their respective programs. Assignment Part 1: Developing an Academic and Professional Network NURS 6003

NETWORK MEMBER 4

Name: MSN Colleagues

Title: RN/MSN/NP Students

Organization: Walden University

Academic or Professional: Academic

Why I selected this individual and/or team and how they will support my success in the MSN program and as a practicing nurse:

Notes:

In our initial introduction in class that I read, each one of us is from various specialties with several years of nursing and life experience. Some of us have shared our vision and mission, challenges, strength and weaknesses.

I chose my colleagues as my academic network members because of our previous experiences, ambitions, goals and visions. By collaborating with my colleagues, I expect to learn new ideas, get feedback, and share information as we develop ourselves in becoming expert in nursing. Our weekly discussions and feedback from my colleagues will inspire me to improve on mu writing and critical thinking skills.

Walden University has provided us with different forms to connect, for example, class café is a good forum for me and my colleagues to network; some of us have shared personal emails to work together as study partner.

It is really important for me to network with my other colleagues in MSN/NP program, this program is 100% online. Therefore, participating in online discussion and through other platforms like Facebook, class café and chat rooms are essential to succeed in this MSN program and as a scholar practitioner.

Academic Success and Professional Development Plan Part 4: Finalizing the Plan

At some point in every construction project, efforts turn from design and the focus moves to actual construction. With the vision in place and the tools secured, the blueprint can be finalized and approved. Then it is time to put on hardhats and begin work.

Throughout the course you have developed aspects of your Academic and Professional Development Plan. You have thought a great deal about your vision and goals, your academic and professional network of support, research strategies and other tools you will need, the integrity of your work, and the value of consulting the work of others. With your portfolio in place, it is now time to finalize your blueprint for success.

Much as builders remain cognizant of the building standards as they plan and begin construction, nurses must remain mindful of the formal standards of practice that govern their specialties.
