PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PLANinsight and perspective. Berg, Hicks, and Roberts, (2017) explains how networking is a lifelong endeavor. They offer tips to succeed within networking meetings and state that always having business cards on hand is essential. Having a mentor and precepting others when possible allows for professional growth. There are many active NP professional organizations available for students and I have recently joined The Chattanooga Area Nurses in Advanced Practice (CANAP) to help get involved and connected. The CANAP is a local group that host monthly meetings where both students and professionals attend and discuss current topics. They have job advertisements located on their home page with local and national listings. They currently have over 30 postings available for the public to view (Local Nurse Practitioner Jobs Near Chattanooga, TN 2018). TheAmerican Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) is another organization that has a nationwide job list database. If you are a member you are able to see job postings before they become public to non-members. The AANP job center (2018) has 11 current posting for the non-member viewing. The APN profession has become a growing career choice over the past few years with many organizations advertising employment. Staying connected and building a network is crucial for obtaining a job after graduation. “Successful professional networking involves shared,mutually beneficial interactions between individuals and/or individuals and groups, regardless of whether it occurs face to face or electronically” (Goolsby and Knestrick, 2017). Social networking is another fantastic tool that helps create connections and relationships. In this generation, everything is based off of the media world and using the internet as a means to stay connected and informed can greatly help with networking. 5
