I plan to utilize the writing center to become more confident and proficient in my writing skills, which will contribute to my ability to write a successful scholarly paper. In addition, I will use the scholarly writing skills I develop to incorporate positive social change in the workplace and environment through my research and practice. The writing center is an excellent tool I will take advantage of throughout my time in the MSN program, which will ultimately contribute to my success as a practicing nurse. Resources

NETWORK MEMBER 3 Name: Shuwanda Henry Title: RN Organization: The Women’s Hospital of Texas 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: Shuwanda Henry is a colleague of mine and current student in the BSN program at Walden University. I have been working with her for almost two years, and I believe she will support my success in the MSN program and as a practicing nurse by sharing her knowledge and expertise with me she has gained through years of experience. She is a registered nurse at the hospital I work at and is the charge nurse most of the time for the unit. I have seen her as an excellent leader not only for myself but the other nurses on the unit as well. I know she will help me be successful in this program because she is always there to lead, support, and guide me as a nurse.
Professional networks are crucial to be successful as a practicing nurse as well as nursing career advancement. According to a recent article, “every professional connection should be based on interactions that involve knowledge sharing and mutual professional development” (Schmidt, K., 2020). I have gained a professional relationship and connection with Shuwanda through work, and have continued to lean on her for advice about my career and furthering my education. For example, she is the person who told me about Walden University and her goals of starting their BSN program. We conversed back and forth about both fulfilling our dreams of furthering our education and encouraged one another to chase after what we want in order to be successful in life. According to one of Walden’s education videos, it is crucial to create mentorships and relationships with other students and professionals to develop a support system and knowing you are not alone (Laureate Education, 2018). Through this professional relationship, Shuwanda has become my mentor, advisor, and leader. I believe she will always support and guide me in my professional career, and contribute to my success in the MSN program by continuing to share her knowledge and expertise. I am so lucky to have her by my side as I forego this incredible journey here at Walden.
