Module 1 | Part 1: Developing an Academic and Professional Network
I have identified and secured the participation of 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 me to clarify my vision for success and will help guide me now
and in the future.
Directions: Complete the information below for each member of your network. For more
than four entries repeat the items below with details of your additional network
member(s) in the ‘ADDITIONAL NETWORK MEMBERS’ section.

Name: Dr. Rebecca Stout

Organization: Walden University
Academic or Professional: Academic
Why I selected this individual and/or team and how they will support my success
in the MSN program and as a practicing nurse:
Notes: Dr. Stout is an accomplished educator in sociology, psychology, and education
leadership. She is part of the faculty at Walden University and I have met her before
and established a relationship which may help me understand my academic role and
expectations in the university. She can assist me through providing guidance,
mentorship, and help with balancing my MSN work with practicing as a nurse. Having
the experience in overseeing capstone projects, she can guide me in proposing my
capstone project, an essential aspect of this graduate program. I will also contact her for
advice on academic achievement and facing the challenges of MSN in general.
NETWORK MEMBER 2
Name: Walden University Career Planning and Development Group
Title: Networking group on LinkedIn

Why I selected this individual and/or team and how they will support my success
in the MSN program and as a practicing nurse:
Notes: This group is an online place for any Walden current student or alumni who
seeks to network with thousands of people in the industry. It promotes conversations
surrounding healthcare professional development and personal improvement. The
group is of like-minded individuals that not only discuss but also network to the
advantage of group members. By joining this group, I get an opportunity to ask
questions and learn from current and former students in my MSN program on various
issues ranging from academic assignments and performance to promoting my success
in the workplace. The group will hopefully help me access more career options and
opportunities as well as learn more on effective utilization of my MSN achievements to
promote my career.

Notes: Ms. Flores is an alumni of Walden University and she completed her MSN a few
years ago. From my personal relationship with her, I have understood her worth in
assisting me to understand assignments and performance requirements for the program
that I am undertaking. She most likely has encountered most of the assignments that I
will come through, courses that I will take, and content that I will encounter. Seeking her
input can assist me in understanding the expectations and competencies to be
developed through the education program better. I will consult her when I need
guidance on specific course deliverables for her advice on the challenges, expected
content, and deliverables for each of the academic components. Having taken this

level and she can assist me in understanding the professional expectations of my
career. She has extensive experience as a registered nurse and she is especially
valuable at the level of an NP, one of my aspirations in my career. Her assistance will
be in implementing what I have learned in my MSN program at the workplace. She will
