Week 1 | Part 1: My Academic and Professional Network I have identified and secured the participation of the following academic (at least two) and professional (at least two) individuals and/or teams to form the basis of my network. This network will help me to clarify my vision for success and will help guide me now and in the future. Directions: Complete the information below for each member of your network. For more than four entries repeat the items below with details of your additional network member(s) in the ‘ADDITIONAL NETWORK MEMBERS’ section. NETWORK MEMBER 1 Name: Raja Taher RN BSN MSN Title: Nursing Director CMU Organization: Inova Fairfax Hospital 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: Note: Raja began her career on a medical floor as a CNA and gradually worked her way up to this nurse leader role. She is currently pursuing her DNP. I selected Raja because she motivates me as a professional, and encourages me to always do my best. When I told Raja about my intention to enroll in an MSN program she asked if I needed help with my schedule. So far, I have a schedule that gives me time in between shifts to work on school and also have time for family. As a practicing Nurse, I can always go to Raja when I need someone to talk to or feel overwhelmed with work.
NETWORK MEMBER 2 Name: Esther Okrah RN BSN CCRN MBA Title: RN Unit Supervisor Organization: Inova Fairfax Hospital Inpatient Rehab 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: Notes: From my first day of work as a new graduate nurse. Esther has been there to support me in my career. She assisted me in gathering all relevant documents and interview readiness for my RN4 which I am currently pursuing. She keeps abreast of current policies and procedures for the hospital system. As a practicing Nurse I know I can always go to Esther for questions about hospital policy and procedures. This first week has been rough for me, getting used to online classroom and APA writing. Esther has supported me so far by sending multiply websites about APA formatting and graduate-level writing. I know I can count on her for professional and academic support through this program.
