Week 2 | Part 2: Academic Resources and Strategies

 

I have identified the following academic resources and/or strategies that can be applied to success in the nursing practice in general or myspecialty in particular.

 

Directions: In the space below Identify and describe at least three academic resources or strategies that can be applied to the MSN program, and at least threeprofessional resources that can be applied to success in the nursing practice in general or your specialty in particular. For each, explain how you intend to use these resources, and how they might benefit you academically and professionally.

 

 

Academic Resource/Strategy 1

 

Group discussion strategy:

As an MSN student, I can use the discussion strategy to encounter difficult concepts and ensure that the group handles them appropriately. Collaboration and quality in discussing the various nursing concepts are good for quality and effective nursing discussions as required.

 

 

Academic Resource/Strategy2

Benchmarking strategy

Going to other quality institutions to benchmark on the nursing practice and the MSN program is a good way to come out and ensure that better strategies are implemented as required. Based on the benchmarking strategy, I would enquire new tactics and techniques of learning MSN program and getting to interact with the sophisticated professionals can be effectively applied in the success of the programs.

 

 

 

Academic Resource/Strategy3

Avoiding procrastination

Based on the necessary goals and strategies, attending all the professional meetings and other specific interventions require that procrastination is avoided. Attending classes and doing assignments in a timely manner is required for quality process through the program.

 

 

 

 

Professional Resource/Strategy1

MSN textbooks

Better knowledge in MSN lies in the published books that are purchased and availed in hardcopy. I will ensure that I read the books and apply quality strategies in the promotion of better approaches to gain the knowledge.

 

 

Professional Resource/Strategy2

Peer reviewed MSN nursing articles and research papers.

 

As a professional resource, I will ensure that I read the articles and follow better strategies to gain new knowledge. The peer review articles are good in the addition of knowledge and I will always read them effectively to get the required knowledge and go through the MSN program.

 

 

Professional Resource/Strategy3

Online tutorials in YouTube

MSN program requires that YouTube tutorials are watched since they are very informative. I will review the video tutorials and check the concepts based on whether they are favorable. The competency of the tutorials will help me gain the best and ensure that strategic  knowledge is applied as required.

 

 

 

ADDITIONAL RESOURCES/STRATEGIES

  1. Reports from seminars.
  2. Past examination papers.
  3. Online libraries.
  4. Precision in communication.

 

 

 

 

Week 3 | Part 3: Strategies to Promote Academic Integrity and Professional Ethics

 

I have analyzed the relationship between academic integrity and writing, as well as the relationship between professional practices and scholarly ethics. I have also identified strategies I intend to pursue to maintain integrity and ethics of my academic work while a student of the MSN program, as well as my professional work as a nurse throughout my career. The results of these efforts are shared below.

 

Directions: In the space below craft your analysis/writing sample, including Part 1 (The Connection Between Academic and Professional Integrity) and Part 2(Strategies for Maintaining Integrity of Work).

 

 

Part 1: Writing Sample: The Connection Between Academic and Professional Integrity

 

In the space below write a 2- 3-paragraph analysis that includes the following:

 

  • Explanation for the relationship between academic integrity and writing
  • Explanation for the relationship between professional practices and scholarly ethics
  • Cite at least 2 resources that support your arguments, being sure to use proper APA formatting.
  • Use Grammarly and SafeAssign to improve the product.
  • Explain how Grammarly, Safe Assign, and paraphrasing contributes to academic integrity

Response

Academic integrity is required in writing since the content and sources are supposed to be effective in the implementation as required (Kidwell 2001). Academic writing is supposed to be genuine and not plagiarized and that is considered good and quality. Academic integrity must ensure that better strategies are followed for academic integrity. The sources authors must be acknowledged and given credits as required.

Professional practices go hand in hand with scholarly ethics (McCabe &Pavela, 2000). There should be maintenance of good ethics in the professional context to ensure that strategic interventions are followed for reduction of the risks. Based on the needed approaches and governance techniques, the professional standards are supposed to observe ethics just like scholarly ethics (McCabe &Pavela, 2000). Quality is necessary in the promotion of better interventions and strategic approaches for quality and comprehensive measures (McCabe &Pavela, 2000). The law is the same and it is required that better measures are followed for quality and effective interventions as required. NURS 6003 Nursing Academic and Professional Success Plan Template

 

 

 

PART 2: Strategies for Maintaining Integrity of Work

 

Expand on your thoughts from Part 1 by:

 

  • Identifying and describing strategies you intend to pursue to maintain integrity and ethics of your 1) academic work while a student of the MSN program, and 2) professional work as a nurse throughout your career. Include a review of resources and approaches you propose to use as a student and a professional.

Response

While pursing MSN program, I will ensure that better strategies are applied in the control of plagiarism. Based on the strategic measures, I will always ensure that better approaches are followed and better measures are followed as necessary. I will refrain from copying of assignments and other materials to ensure that genuine processes are implemented. Strategically, I will ensure that quality is implemented and strategic approaches implemented to reduce the cases of academic irregularities.

In the research program of MSN program, I will ensure that I acknowledge the good professionals who had published the sources. In the online platform, I will take the sources and cite appropriately to ensure that there is a genuine work as recommended. Also, I will focus on better explanations and ensure that strategic measures are implemented to reduce the challenges of tainted integrity. As a professional nurse, I will always follow the right procedure and ensure that the role of the nurses is incorporated and effectively implemented as necessary.

Week 4 | Part 4: Research Analysis

 

I have identified one topic of interest for further study. I have researched and identified one peer-reviewed research article focused on this topic and have analyzed this article. The results of these efforts are shared below.

 

Directions: Complete Step 1 by using the table and subsequent space below identify and analyze the research article you have selected. Complete Step 2 by summarizing in 2-3 paragraphs the results of your analysis using the space identified.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Step 1: Research Analysis

Complete the table below

Topic of Interest: Adult gerontology primary care
Research Article:Include full citation in APA format, as well as link or search details (such as DOI) King, A. I., Boyd, M. L., Dagley, L., & Raphael, D. L. (2018). Implementation of a gerontology nurse specialist role in primary health care: health professional and older adult perspectives. Journal of clinical Nursing27(3-4), 807-818.https://doi.org/10.1111/jocn.14110
Professional Practice Use:

One or more professional practice uses of the theories/concepts presented in the article

The article seeks to address the critical elements and resources needed to cater to the increasing demands and needs of the increasingly aging population. The concepts presented are directly applicable in gerontology nurse specialist roles as they help guide professionals on the best practices that can greatly improve the experiences of older people who need primary care. Another professional use regards the manner in which other healthcare professionals are expected to behave in the context of supporting gerontology nurse specialists in the furtherance of their duties. The theoretical foundation of the study is evidence-based care.
Research Analysis Matrix

Add more rows if necessary

Strengths of the Research Limitations of the Research Relevancy to Topic of Interest Notes
 

Simplicity

A relatively small sample size Provides befitting recommendations in regard to gerontology primary care A larger sample size would be better
The structure of the interviews befits the current topic of study.

 

The methodology used is quite limited. The findings are directly applicable for the betterment of gerontology care. It would be better to consult multiple stakeholders when conducting the interviews and surveys so as to capture broader perspectives on the topic.
The flow of the paper is great.

 

Proving the hypothesis in a better way would demand the use of a more comprehensive approach to getting the responses. Provides relevant information that can pave the way for integration of primary and secondary care in the context of adult gerontology. There is need for a more incisive research to establish the current gaps in adult gerontology.
There is sufficient use of external resources to support the arguments

 

It would have been better to provide a more comprehensive literature review of the topic since laying the foundation regarding the current state of adult gerontology is quite important. Shows the importance of care coordination in the field of adult gerontology, as well as in many other healthcare fields. The article is credible enough to be used in a wide array of professional landscapes to guide the practice.
Directly applicable to adult gerontology primary care.

 

     
Every argument is well supported by examples and real-life support

 

     
The authors are well-versed in the topic in question.

 

     
The topic is narrow enough to pave the way for a more comprehensive analysis.

 

     
Articles used are not old.

 

     
       

 

 

 

Step 2: Summary of Analysis

Craft a summary (2-3 paragraph) below that includes the following:

  • Describe your approach to identifying and analyzing peer-reviewed research
  • Identify at least two strategies that you would use that you found to be effective in finding peer-reviewed research
  • Identify at least one resource you intend to use in the future to find peer-reviewed research

 

My approach to identifying the peer-reviewed articles starts at Google.com. While many may tend to think that this is a simplistic approach, I believe that it gives me a basic understanding of the specific sites where I will need to go to so as to narrow down the scope of the articles that I will be looking for. For example, when looking for the current article used in this research, I started by googling “recent journal articles on adult gerontology primary care.” The search brought about many suggestions, which I then pursued further to get better and more relevant articles.

The first strategy that I use to find effective peer-reviewed research is to use keywords, phrases, and subject headings that are directly related to the current topic. Keywords help in narrowing down to articles that are relevant and credible. The second strategy that I use is to specify the exact measure that I want for my articles. Specifically, I filter the search results based on how old the article is, whether it is peer-reviewed, and the specific journals in which it has been published. This way, it becomes possible for me to get only relevant and credible articles. NURS 6003 Nursing Academic and Professional Success Plan Template

A resource that I am planning to use in the future is EBSCOhost. This resource has a broad database of articles from all fields, and I believe that it will be indispensable in my future research. Moreover, it offers the user better control on how to filter the search results so that one can only get the specific kind of articles that he or she is looking for.

My selection is in psychiatry and mental health specialization. The specialization is good and necessary in the promotion of effective and quality mental health. I feel this is a good selection since it involves solving the problems of clients and ensuring that they have a good and healthy psychosocial life. Based on the strategic interventions, I prefer the approaches and necessary in the implementations that are necessary for control of the challenges as required.

The second choice and selection is Midwifery and I feel it is a good strategy in the promotion of quality and comprehensive mother care. I feel there is a difference in the training processes are different because the facilities required for the same are different.
