Discussion: Networking Opportunities

Discussion: Networking Opportunities

In this module, you begin laying the foundation for your academic and professional success. Your efforts begin with a vision that includes your own definition of success. Your vision may vary from those of your colleagues, but this does not mean you have to take these first steps alone.

Walden University and the College of Nursing also have a vision and mission, which include helping you to make your own vision a reality. Members of your new academic community, such as faculty, support teams, and fellow students, can also be helpful.

My name is .. and I am a new graduate Emergency Department Nurse. I recently just graduated in May and I have been working in my new role since July. While in school I provided tutoring to students in various classes which led me obtain a passion for teaching. My ultimate end goal is to become a nursing school and clinical instructor to undergraduate students. In addition, I plan to start a mentoring program for nursing students and new graduate nurses to provide support and advice to people in need. To be in the teaching profession, I knew that I needed to further my education to reach my professional goals.

Vision, Mission & Social Change

Walden University was referred to me by a colleague that also attended here and obtained her advanced practice degree. In doing my research of various programs, Walden’s program intrigued me because of the flexibility and dedication to professional development that they provided. As an aspiring professor, I want to uplift and contribute to change to upcoming nurses which relates to Walden University’s mission statement which is to “provide a diverse community of career professionals with the opportunity to transform themselves so that they can provide social change.” (Walden University, 2020) Being a professor, I want to instill lifelong knowledge to my students and leave an impression that motivates more students to want to become a professor just like me. There is a nursing school professor shortage and I want to help change that which will contribute to ending the nursing shortage we have today. Walden’s vision correlates with my professional goals because the knowledge I obtain from this school will help me spread what I know to other aspiring nurses that will eventually be working in various communities.

Program Outcomes

Being an educator and leader, you must be able to communicate effectively which of one Walden’s learning outcomes. Effective communication is essential in being an educator and setting an example for other students. At the end of this program, I want to be a Nursing Educator that knows how to give information correctly and have professional dialog with my students. Also, I would like to know how to effectively assess and plan different diagnoses to become more competent in different disease processes. (Walden University, 2020) This goal is instilled in Walden’s MSN outcomes and will help me become more knowledgeable and be able to efficiently educate my students. As a future educator, my beliefs and goals are very similar to Walden’s Vision, Mission, and Goals. Proving a better education to the community is my passion and enhancing my knowledge through Walden University will ensure that I am prepared in my mission.

PEER RESPONSE

When reading your post, I was impressed that as a new graduate you have already decided on a career path in education. The one bit of advice I wish had been offered to me when I was first starting out is to keep my options open. Don’t get me wrong, I have loved my career in the OR, but sometimes I wonder what would have happened if I had explored other options earlier on. The field of nursing offers an array of opportunities and one ever knows what doors may open. Schmidt asserted that “…developing a professional network with a broad scope will help you move in a new direction if desired” (2018, p.3).

During my career, one of the networking options that I have found most valuable is my membership with the Association of periOperative Registered Nurses (AORN). Likewise, there are many associations for nurse educators that can provide you with tools and networking options to be successful in this arena.  One that comes to mind is the National League for Nursing (NLN) which offers “professional development, networking opportunities, testing services, nursing research grants, and public policy initiatives” (NLN, 2020). Sometimes there are even discounted memberships available for students. I am a full believer of taking advantage of any knowledge source available.

PEER RESPONSE 2

I am so excited to hear that you have chosen not only the Emergency Department as your specialization but that you have intentions of going forward to educate our new younger generations of nurses coming through the rigorous program. The ED has been my home for 15 years and I love seeing nurses coming in green and blossom into successful independent warriors in the ED. Reading your discussion I am going to guess you have either just completed your orientation or are coming up on completing it. Congratulations! I commend your hard work and dedication and I am sure you will have lots of experiences by the time you move into the role of instructor.

Educating new nurses inside or outside of a clinical setting is crucial to their success in their career. In an article by the Journal of Emergency Nursing it talks about how imperative it is that new graduates coming into the ED spend time “ reinforcing their knowledge, learn and practice new techniques, increase their organization skills, develop their ability to prioritize, and become comfortable with the emergency nurses role” (Loiseau et al., 2003). As an instructor you will be able to help lay the foundation for your students to be successful when they enter the world of nursing. Taking mentoring classes and learning from your own experiences through your orientation process will be an asset that you will be able to bring forward to your own students someday. Classroom settings are great foundations, but they are not as valuable as real-world experiences in my opinion. A simulation manikin cannot replace the hands-on touch of a person but with your knowledge you can bring that simulation to life.

I remember crying more then not during my first year of nursing and I also remember how important my preceptor was for me but also remembering everything my instructors had taught me in school. They brought a wealth of knowledge to me personally and professionally and it holds true today when I sit back and think about my own path. Nursing burnout and stress are a big factor and you are correct that communication will help you to improve your overall goal of developing well rounded nurses. Nurses are in short supply and high demand and stress plays a big role in that. In an article in the Nursing Research journal it talks primarily about “the effect that stress has on the health and performance of nursing students can be mediated by other life stressors, as well as personal, behavioral, social and environmental factors that are experienced during school or earlier in life” (Alvarez et all., 2019).  Every one of us who has gone through nursing school has experienced stress and burnout and we had not even stepped foot inside of a hospital. As a leader and educator you can help your students develop coping skills to take on the stress they will experience, as well as, give them your own experiencing and how you worked through challenges you faced. You will also be able to motivate your students to push through those days of doubts and show them not every day is gloomy, there are many exciting and rewarding days in the field of nursing. Good luck to you Chanel.

SAMPLE 2

Mission and Vision for my Future with Walden University

I have worked in health care for 14 years in long-term and acute care settings.  While the patients and work have been grueling at times, what has always made me come back are the attitudes and work ethic of my coworkers and bosses.  Energy is contagious and whatever you put out there is what you will attract and allow others to feel.  This is why having great individuals in leadership positions is essential to have a smooth-running unit and for staff to be cohesive in their relationships.  I have been fortunate to have wonderful role models in managerial roles.  Their support has steered me to my calling in leadership and to enroll in the master’s in nursing executive program at Walden University.

Walden University’s (2020b) vision relating to the progression of health care to “transform the provision of nursing services…to meet the needs of individuals and local and global communities” (para. 4) particularly resounds with me.  Health care is constantly changing and Walden’s mission supports students having the skills and capabilities to apply what we learn to the real world and use our “nursing knowledge in order to transform society” (Walden University, 2020b, para. 5).  As a nursing leader, you are responsible for taking care of your staff, which is your community.  With a master’s degree from Walden, I will not only be better equipped to care for my community, but to have resources and the education to help move my staff, unit, and hospital forward.

Social Change and Being a Scholar Practitioner

Since health care is constantly changing, it is essential for health care workers to be able to adapt and be socially cognizant.  This is a goal of Walden University (2020b) since it “provides…culturally and contextually relevant educational programs” (para. 4).  Being out of touch makes you irrelevant and you cannot move forward and enact change if you are stuck in the past.  It is important to remember history and what has happened in the past, but you must learn from it and grow and not accept current situations simply for the fact that that is how it has always been.  In order to become a scholar practitioner, I need to remember this fact and Walden University’s master’s program will help me to achieve this.  The program “prepares students to focus their practice on the identified health needs of society” (Walden University, 2020a, para. 1).  As I move forward with my education and career, I will be able to better critically think and apply measures to help my employees as a leader and also to help implement practices to better serve our patients and their family members.

PEER RESPONSE

Dana, I thank you for being the nurse that wants to go back and get her master’s in nursing leadership. I think that is a critical role in the success of a department, facility, and patient care. Leadership is a thankless role many times and it takes a strong and dedicated nurse to want to face that challenge. I have worked in the same department for nearly eleven years and I have gone through five nursing directors. The instability of having a leader who is absent or lacks knowledge on new trends in nursing can be devastating for a department and its nurses. Taking care of your nursing staff is just as critical as taking care of patients. The wellbeing of your nurses helps in the productivity and quality of care being delivered. My most recent director received her BSN three years ago and I could not understand how someone could be in that role and I held a higher degree then her. I quickly learned that her network of skills and relationships throughout our state did not compare to her degree. I did achieve a BSN and I have seen her grow more since then as well.

Walden’s goal to “provide…culturally and contextually relevant education programs” (Walden, 2020. para 4) is crucial to the overall outcome of nursing. This will not only play a role in bedside nursing but being culturally aware of societies and nurses help you as a leader to relate to your staff and offer support. We do not all look at death the same way or unwed mothers, abortions and many other ethically impacts we face daily and having a strong leader by our side is critical even if we just need to vent.

Once you achieve your MSN in leadership, I am sure a huge network of administrators in your facility and else where will offer you an abundance of support. I know my boss frequently reaches out to other directors and state officials when she is implementing new procedures or policies. Have you been attending leadership seminars? Does your hospital support you in attending training seminars and state and local conferences where you could meet other nurses pursuing your same goal? I found that valuable and I do not even plan in going into leadership. I always recommend seminars and webinars on leadership. I am a charge nurse and having those difficult conversations with nurses is never easy and I am not particularly good at it so I try and attend as many leadership conferences as possible so I can be better. A leader can make you or break you and I applaud you for wanting to go in that direction and better the outcome of your fellow nurses and patient care in the future. Leadership, like I said is often a thankless job and you take on the world when things go bad and get little accolade when things go well. Good luck in everything you do and thank you for wanting to be that driving force for the positive outcome in clinical bedside nurses.

Discussion – Week 1

My Goals and University Vision and Mission

I have been a nurse for seven years and in these seven years I have become interested in advancing my career.  The only way to do so, is by achieving my Master’s degree.  In order to achieve my goal in the next five to ten years of a nursing leader, I have decided on the educational path of Nurse Executive.  I began my search for the right program last year to help achieve this goal.

When I came across Walden University I was at first skeptical.  I didn’t know if this was the right school for me.  My first inquisition of the program gave me a different insight after speaking to an admissions recruiter.  Walden University’s Mission states “The College of Nursing envisions recognition as a preeminent 21st-century school of nursing in which the contributions of nursing, health, and related sciences will transform the provision of nursing services along the continuum of care and across the human life span to meet the needs of individuals and local and global communities.” (Walden University, 2020, para. 4).  This statement helped my decision of choosing this University to help me gain my professional growth.  The words “the contributions of nursing, health and related sciences will transform the provision of nursing services” (Walden University, 2020, para. 4) explains what a Nurse Executive is and what the goal of the program entails.  I wanted a school that would be more than just a degree but would show a different insight by the words of their Mission and Vision.

Outcomes and Perspectives

Sue Subocz, PhD states in her message “Throughout your journey toward graduation, please remember that you are never alone.” (Subocz, PhD, S., 2020) and this is more than words to myself.  The online catalog page on the Walden University website is an excellent guide for academic growth.  The catalog helps direct students to different online resources to help guide and grow personal academic growth.  In my current role, I am able to utilize these resources to help grow in leading teams and develop leadership relationships.  My goal is to be a Nurse Leader and Walden University has shown different ways to help grow me academically and professionally throughout the program outcomes and perspectives.  I want to grow into a Leader that transforms nursing to another level.  Receiving my Master’s degree from Walden University will help achieve this goal.
