    Week 1 | Part 1: My Academic and Professional Network
     
     
     
    It is critical for me to create a professional network, so that when I find a job, I have other professionals that I can rely on to help me navigate my new profession. Schmidt (n.d.) recommends that developing a professional network is the single best way to ensure that you get to work in your chosen specialty or in a field you are truly interested in. This starts at the academic level, but then follows one throughout their professional career. Thus, it is important to identify what members are only members of an academic network, and while can be converted to part of a professional network, at a later date.
    This can also be related to Walden’s goals and University Outcomes. The first goal is to “provide multi-contextual educational opportunities for career learners” which is increasingly possible thought networking, because it provides access to those multiple contexts. In other words, the more people, in multiple situations, that I know, the more opportunities that I have to learn from those contexts. This also helps expand my understanding of different cultures and contexts. This directly connects with other goals like innovation, learning, and accessing diverse learning processes. Thus, I will focus on building networks in order to support my educational goals, and my professional goals.
     
    NETWORK MEMBER 1
     
    Name: The Faculty in the Walden University Program of Study
     
     
    Title: My Professors
     
     
    Organization: Walden University
     
     
    Academic or Professional: Academic
     
     
    Why I selected this individual and/or team and how they will support my success in the MSN program and as a practicing nurse:
    I have selected Walden University as the place that I will study nursing,and get my degree. The university has an excellent reputation, and so the staff offers expertise that will help me prepare for my chosen career path. Phyllis Morgan (Laureate Education, 2018) states that the staff at Walden university are passionate about teaching and student success, and that they want to see students succeed. This makes them an important part of my academic network and my path toward success. I can use them as a resource when I am struggling in my classes, and they have a responsibility and a desire to help me overcome those obstacles, in order to be a success in that setting.
     
     
     
     
    NETWORK MEMBER 2
     
    Name: Robert Harper
     
     
    Title: Academic Advisor
     
     
    Organization: Walden University
     
     
    Academic or Professional: Academic
     
    Why I selected this individual and/or team and how they will support my success in the MSN program and as a practicing nurse:
     
    This person is responsible for helping me chart my path through the University phase of my educational life. He helps me set my schedule, determine which instructors would be the best fit for certain classes and more. From my first semester, this person, as an academic advisor, has had resources to help me be more successful in my chosen course of study. He has also helped me navigate various elements of the academic setting, like the online resources, how to get into Canvas and other programs. Professionally he has and will continue to help me find practicum locations that are suitable to my professional goals.
     
    NETWORK MEMBER 3
     
    Name: Blue Pipes
     
     
    Title: Medical Online Networking
     
     
    Organization: Professional
     
     
    Academic or Professional: Professional
     
     
    Why I selected this individual and/or team and how they will support my success in the MSN program and as a practicing nurse:
    it is important, in this modern age, to determine the best way to communicate with a wide variety of professionals in the field of medicine online. This offers a unique way to get in contact with diverse people and have informal conversations, that helps me begin to build those professional networking connections with a large number of people. Wafford (2018) encourages the use of social media as a way to build a professional network. Blue Pipes has a large built in network and will allow me to make the connections I need for both placement during my practicum, and long-term within the professional network to get the jobs I most want.
     
    NETWORK MEMBER 4
     
    Name: Modupe Adefeso BSN, RN
     
     
    Title: Fellow Nursing Student at Walden University (MSN Candidate)
     
     
    Organization: Walden University
     
     
    Academic or Professional: Professional and Academic
     
     
    Why I selected this individual and/or team and how they will support my success in the MSN program and as a practicing nurse:
    Building friendships with peers who are working on the same level as you are important. Modupe has been my study partner throughout my experience here at Walden, and that makes it an important part of Academic network. However, as we move into the clinical phase of our education, it is clear to me that she will remain one of my professional network members as we begin practicing professionally. We will be able to talk about cases, share ideas, and more.
