My Academic and Professional Network

I have established connections with the following academic (at least two) and professional (at least two) individuals and/or teams to form the basis of my network. This network will help clarify my vision for success and guide me in the present and future.

Reason for selection and how they will support my success in the MSN program and as a practicing nurse:

Judith has been my friend and colleague since our undergraduate program. She moved to the U.S.A a few years before me and has been instrumental in guiding me through my nursing career. She provided insights into different nursing specialties and helped me develop both short-term and long-term goals. Recently, Judith completed her MSN-FNP at Walden University and is awaiting her board exams. She shared her challenges during the program, such as balancing school, family, and a full-time job, and how she overcame them. Judith consistently provides encouragement and support as I take steps towards furthering my education. She is a friend and professional mentor I can always rely on.

Dorothy is a social media activist for the health and wellness of the less fortunate in society and serves as a mentor to many. She shared her inspiring story of rising from a humble background to where she is today. While not one of the top students in her earlier years, her resilience and hard work have yielded results. When I met her, I felt motivated to pursue further education without delay. Dorothy has a relentless pursuit of knowledge and consistently enrolls in short courses. Her interest in drug addiction and the opioid epidemic has led her to collaborate with fellow professionals to establish a clinic for those struggling with addiction. She mentors me on becoming a professional entrepreneur in psychiatric and mental health specialties. Whenever possible, I volunteer and learn alongside her during medical missions. Through Dorothy, I have gained valuable insights into advanced practice nursing, and I firmly believe that joining Walden University was the right decision.

Ms. Kathi is an exceptional mentor and teacher for nurses new to the psychiatric and mental health specialty. She has been a valuable resource in understanding mental health from an academic perspective. We have engaged in one-on-one discussions about my areas of interest, and she has been accommodating of my work schedule in relation to my school work. Ms. Kathi has provided guidance on prioritizing courses, and I look forward to gaining more knowledge from her as I pursue my journey as a nurse practitioner.
