Academic Success And Professional Development Plan Part 2: Academic Resources And Strategies

 

New construction projects begin with a design phase, where architects blueprint the vision complete with design details. They work in collaboration with builders who use the designs to prepare the appropriate strategies, tools, and materials to bring the vision to reality. You are both architect and builder of your success. You have started to blueprint your vision in your Academic Success and Professional Development Plan. You have identified others with whom you will collaborate. Now you can begin to prepare the appropriate strategies, tools, and materials.

How will you approach your studies? What types of resources are available to you, and how will you access and utilize them? Taking the opportunity to prepare these strategies, tools, and materials will help ensure you can “break ground” without incident and successfully move to the phase where you begin building your vision.

To Prepare:

  • Consider your goals for      academic accomplishments while a student of the MSN program.
  • Reflect on the strategies      presented in the Resources for this module.

The Assignment:

In this Assignment, you will continue developing your Academic Success and Professional Development Plan by appending the original document you began in the previous Assignment to develop the second component—academic resources and strategies. To accomplish this:

  • Identify and describe at      least three academic resources (The writing Center, Online library,      Technical Support Team)      or strategies that can be applied to the MSN program.
  • Identify and describe at      least three professional resources (Instructor, Mentor, Preceptor)      that can be applied to success in the nursing practice in general or your specialty.
  • Explain how you intend to use      these resources, and how they might benefit you academically and      professionally.
