PROFESSIONAL RESOURCE/STRATEGY 1 A professional resource I will use is joining a nurses association. I would like to join one that is not only online but also local so that I can meet fellow professionals. In this day and age, networking is an important key to success, especially when looking for new employment. They will also be great resources when it is time to find a clinical preceptor. PROFESSIONAL RESOURCE/STRATEGY 2 Another professional resource I plan on using is the unit educator at my current place of employment. She has so much wonderful advice for everyone not only professionally but also academically. I have obtained numerous certifications thanks to my unit educator. She has always supported continuing education and has been available whenever I needed help. PROFESSIONAL RESOURCE/STRATEGY 3 Another professional resource I currently rely on is my mom. She is a Geriatric Nurse Practitioner. I love being able to bounce ideas off of her and learn from her many years of nursing experience. I used to call her in nursing school when I needed help with care plans. I’m sure I will be doing the same but on a more complexed level when I begin practicums. She is a wealth of knowledge, especially when it comes to medications and correct dosage.
Week 3 | Part 3: Strategies to Promote Academic Integrity and Professional Ethics I have analyzed the relationship between academic integrity and writing, as well as the relationship between professional practices and scholarly ethics. I have also identified strategies I intend to pursue to maintain integrity and ethics of my academic work while a student of the MSN program, as well as my professional work as a nurse throughout my career. The results of these efforts are shared below. Directions: In the space below craft your analysis/writing sample, including Part 1 (The Connection Between Academic and Professional Integrity) and Part 2 (Strategies for Maintaining Integrity of Work). Part 1: Writing Sample: The Connection Between Academic and Professional Integrity In the space below write a 2- 3-paragraph analysis that includes the following: ● Explanation for the relationship between academic integrity and writing ● Explanation for the relationship between professional practices and scholarly ethics ● Cite at least 2 resources that support your arguments, being sure to use proper APA formatting. ● Use Grammarly and SafeAssign to improve the product. ● Explain how Grammarly, Safe Assign, and paraphrasing contributes to academic integrity Academic integrity is providing your own work through papers, discussions, tests, etc. It is not cheating, buying papers, and asking other students for answers (MIT, 2019). The relationship between academic integrity and writing is paramount to ensuring the
original work of your own intellect and honesty. Plagiarism is the act of taking someone else’s written work as your own.
