This website will provide me with an array of helpful resources, videos, and tips, which will help mold me into the best pediatric nurse practitioner I dream to be.

Having access to this website will provide me with the specialized knowledge of pediatric nursing I need, including study guides on various topics, information on well-child checks in all age groups, and different medications in flashcard form. In addition, some of the resource recommendations they provide include different specialty textbooks, clinical tools and guides, pediatric journals, mobile apps, and various podcasts. Throughout my journey at Walden, my goal is to take advantage of this extremely helpful website by gaining additional knowledge on pediatric nursing through the variety of resources they provide.

able to apply the knowledge I develop into my professional career as a pediatric nurse practitioner. Resources NP Student Home. (n.d.). Retrieved January 14, 2020, from . PROFESSIONAL RESOURCE/STRATEGY 2 The National Association of Pediatric Nurse Practitioners (NAPNAP) is a great professional resource I will utilize throughout my time in the MSN program and as a practicing pediatric nurse. I will be provided important information regarding membership, patient advocacy, and career services and opportunities, which will help me grow as a professional nurse practitioner. Being a member of the NAPNAP will allow me “access to CE courses, advocating for recognition and credibility of your profession or exclusive discounts on nationwide conferences, NAPNAP provides its members with many opportunities for growth, achievement and professional excellence” (NAPNAP, 2019). I will be able to have access to these benefits as a MSN student as well as an advanced practice nurse. Having the opportunity to earn continuing education through their accreditation program will advance my knowledge and provide me with up to date information regarding pediatric nursing, and ultimately contribute to my success in providing patients the best quality of care.
The NAPNAP will provide me with educational opportunities that are centered in pediatric patient care, and the knowledge and skills needed to be a successful pediatric nurse practitioner. This professional resource will allow me to grow academically as a MSN student, and ultimately contribute to my own professional development in pediatric nursing.
