Another advantage of this Facebook group, is that it has allowed me to build
relationships and connections with other students with similar goals across the world. According to Walden faculty, it is extremely important to look to your peers for support and even create study groups in order to be successful in the program (Laureate Education, Inc., 2018). As I continue this journey at Walden, my goal is to utilize the many resources I have, including my fellow peers and Facebook group, to create a positive academic environment and overall success in the MSN program. Throughout the program, I know I will always have the other Walden students as a main academic resource to lean on for support and advice, which will ultimately contribute to my success.

ACADEMIC RESOURCE/STRATEGY 3 To be successful in the MSN program, my goal is to utilize different academic strategies including, effective time management, remaining organized, planning ahead,
and using appropriate communication. I believe that by utilizing these various academic strategies, I will be able to effectively balance my school work, professional, and social life. Throughout the MSN program, I will encompass effective time management skills by continuing to plan out my weeks accordingly and making sure I have the right about time to get my school work done. According to one of Walden’s academic videos, it is extremely important to set aside time to successfully do the discussions and assignments, so there is less stress and overall success in program (Laureate Education, Inc., 2018). In addition to effective time management, I will also use appropriate communication throughout the MSN online program. In a Walden video, they say “your written communication is your main way to connect with and interact with other students at Walden”, which is why it is very important to remain professional and scholarly in my writing (Laureate Education, Inc., 2018). I will continue to be positive in my postings, and I will read them aloud before submitting them to make sure they are grammarly correct. To be successful academically, I will continue to have effective time management skills, remain organized, plan ahead, and use appropriate online communication. With the utilization of these academic strategies, I believe I will be successful in this MSN program which will ultimately lead to my professional success as a practicing nurse. Resources
