Walden UniversityAcademic or Professional: AcademicWhy I selected this individual and/or team and how they will support my success in the MSN program and as a practicing nurse: After completing the Masters Students Readiness Orientation, I was comforted with a real sense of support. The library has a vast selection of resources, articles, books, and media, not to mention the ability to ask the librarian questions when I may need assistance. Their Mission statement paints a picture of a community thriving and people seeking a world-changing education, “The Walden University Library is dedicated to fostering an information-literate Walden community.” (2019). Walden’s writing center will be visited quite often, and this tool will be invaluable to me as I get reacquainted with APA format, as stated in the writing centers blog,” APA style is complex; it’s like learning a new language.” (center, 2019)Walden also provides each student with a Student Success Advisor, who is ”well-versed in your program requirements and the university policies outlined in the Catalog and Handbook. We can assist you in understanding the many facets of yourprogram, and if we cannot answer your question, we will help connect you with the right resources or departments – or to better understand the information you have gotten from another department.” (2019) I appreciate the lifeline, Paula Sumner-Walker has thrown out to me, I feel she will be a great support as I move through thisprogram. I feel empowered and able to concur this Master’s program knowing the Academic Resource team is only a click away.
