Assignment wk 2

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 week.

The Assignment:

Identify and describe at least three academic resources or strategies that can be applied to the MSN program

Identify and describe at least three professional resources that can be applied to success in the nursing practice in general or your specialty in particular

Explain how you intend to use these resources, and how they might benefit you academically and professionally.

Note: Add your work for this Assignment to the original document you began in the Week 1 Assignment, which was built off the Academic Success and Professional Development Plan Template.

Resources A

1. Read the Syllabus.

The Syllabus should be the first item you read (and print out) on the first day of

the course. The Syllabus includes important information about the course

structure, topics, activities, and due dates.

2. Print out the Instructor contact information.

You never know when you might need to contact the Instructor by e-mail or even

by phone. If you are not able to access the course to retrieve this information,

you will want to be sure you have it close by for reference.

3. Familiarize yourself with the online classroom.

Take some time to explore the online classroom and its features and functions.

You will be more comfortable and efficient with online learning if you know where

to locate items in the classroom.

4. Form relationships with your online classmates.

You are encouraged to form professional relationships with your online

classmates so that you have a network of people to turn to for support or if you

have questions about the course content. Make sure that you have your

classmates’ contact information so that you may communicate during the course

and after it has ended.

5. Remember that your online colleagues are not exactly like you.

The online classroom includes people from different countries and cultures and

who speak different languages. Therefore, if a Discussion posting or e-mail

seems unclear or different from what you expect from a classmate, consider that

the person may have a different approach to communication and learning than

you do.

6. Contact someone when you need assistance.

In the online environment, no one will know if you have a question about an

assignment or have a problem with your computer unless you say something.

You will be expected to initiate contact with someone, often through e-mail or the

phone, to request assistance and seek answers.

7. Participate actively and regularly in the online Discussions.

Dialogue, discussion, and collaboration among students are highly valued by the

institution. As a result, you are expected to participate in online Discussion

regularly throughout the week (a 7-day timeframe).

8. Adhere to specific due dates for activities.

Online learning is flexible in that you may participate and work on assignments at

any hour convenient to you. However, your online courses will have specific due

dates each week for participating in Discussion and for submitting written

assignments. For example, in one week (a 7-day timeframe) you may be

required to participate in Discussion on Day 3 and Day 5 and submit written

assignments by Day 7. Check your course Syllabus for such details.

9. Behave with academic integrity and honesty.

Online learners are
