1Academic and Professional Success PlanPrepared by:Matthew LairdNURS 6003: Transition to Graduate Study for Nursing
2Part 1: My Academic and Professional NetworkIntroduction and Purpose Statement: Below is a framework of professionals with whom I have worked throughout my career. By assessing the careers of my professional network, the purpose of compiling this list is to assess their future potential benefit in my professional networking. As past and present colleagues, together we have seen each other through many career endeavors. It is my intention to reach out to these professionals for future advise and consultation as I develop my professional skills and goals. NETWORK MEMBER 1Name: Marla Meggers Title: CNO, MSN, RNOrganization: Gilbert HospitalAcademic or Professional: Professional ColleagueWhy I selected this individual and/or team and how they will support my success in the MSN program and as a practicing nurse:I first met Marla while working in ICU at Maricopa County Hospital. She was my Nurse Supervisor at the time. Throughout our careers, she has always been an invaluable source of positive inspiration, as she has climbed the clinical leadership ladder, eventually assuming the responsibility of CNO in Gilbert, AZ. She recruited me there to be a lead RN resource, floating between their ER, ICU, and when needed Medical/Surgical departments. We have always remained close professional colleagues. I believe I would be able to call upon her at any time forprofessional advice.
3NETWORK MEMBER 2Name: Christine HelouTitle: FNP, MSNOrganization: Oncology Specialists, Washington D.C.Academic or Professional: Professional ColleagueWhy I selected this individual and/or team and how they will support my success in the MSN program and as a practicing nurse:Christine and I attended nursing school at George Mason University. We quickly becameclose friends, as we tackled each course. To this day whenever she is visiting my area of the country, or I’m on the east coast, we make time to spend time together. I have called her on many occasions regarding professional inquiries. She is a positive, to the point leader. Her specialty is oncology. Her commitment and perseverance are an inspiration. I believe I (or any of her patients for that matter) could call at any hour of the day for assistance knowing we could count on her expeditious response. NETWORK MEMBER 3Name: Brad CutchenTitle: Admissions AdvisorOrganization: Walden UniversityAcademic or Professional: Academic ResourceWhy I selected this individual and/or team and how they will support my success in the MSN program and as a practicing nurse:
4Brad is an outstanding example of exactly what a professional academic advisor should strive to be. He is eager to help while remaining calm and collected. His ambition, attention to detail, and enthusiasm are contagious. From the first call I got from Brad telling me I had been admitted to Walden, I knew immediately I would be able to talk openly with him about any issue,knowing he would follow through to assist me.
