in the MSN program and as a practicing nurse:Christina is my co-worker and helped train me when I first started working at Truman. She is a seasoned nurse and had so much patience for all my questions and concerns. I love that she never takes her jobs too seriously and can always find humor in any situation. Christina taught me how to read rhythm strips, deal with unruly patients, and put IV's like a champ. Whenever I am thinking about applying for a new position, I always consult with Christina first because she will give me straight forward advice. ADDITIONAL NETWORK MEMBERS
Week 2 | Part 2: Academic Resources and StrategiesI have identified the following academic resources and/or strategies that can be applied to success in the nursing practice in general or my specialty in particular.Directions: In the space below Identify and describe at least three academic resourcesor strategies that can be applied to the MSN program, and at least threeprofessional resourcesthat can be applied to success in the nursing practice in general or your specialty in particular. For each, explain how you intend to use these resources, and how they might benefit you academically and professionally.ACADEMIC RESOURCE/STRATEGY 1The first academic resource that I will apply to this MSN program is the academic advising that is offered here at Walden University. This is a search box where students and type in their concerns and then be sent to the correct place for help. Academic advisors are also available for phone and video calls. They have several times and dates available so that they can accommodate most everyone's schedule. I will be usingthis resource to be sure that I am taking the correct courses needed and also for some positive inspiration. My strategy is to meet with my academic advisor bi-weekly to keep me on track. ACADEMIC RESOURCE/STRATEGY 2The second academic resource I will utilize to obtain my MSN at Walden University is Grammarly. This is a free program that can be downloaded to most computers so that students can feel confident when writing. It corrects grammatical errors and will even help structure yourwriting with the premium program. I will use this program when writing all my papers for the MSN program. It is easy to overlook mistakes, especially when writing a long paper. ACADEMIC RESOURCE/STRATEGY 3
Another academic resource I will use is YouTube. I used YouTube all throughout nursing school and will continue to do so. It has so many helpful videos from brushing up on math to about a disease process. I am a visual learner so this has been one of the most useful strategies I have found. I also love that I can rewind videos and watch them over and over until I understand the concept needed.
