Introduction.

The world is ever-growing in terms of technological advancement. This aspect requires as new leaders and professionals are being prepared in various learning institutions. They need to understand the importance of professional networking as one of the essential tools in developing and improving their careers. It must be known that since time immemorial, it must be understood that academic networking has been of great value and served as the primary platform that allows one to be connected with other experts and professionals to develop a body of contacts (Robinson, 2017). This aspect not only improves and facilitates skills and knowledge sharing among various experts and professionals but also demonstrates one's ability to form a network of academic and practitioner contact that otherwise could boost employment prospects.

Perhaps via academic networking alongside a professional development plan, one is able to clearly identify and possibly determine a roadmap that is composed of skills, strategy, and education needed to improve and further oneself career as well as life to achieve set professional goals. Some of these professional development aspects that play a critical role in one's life include conidiation of education, actively participating in professional organizations, research work, improving job performance, skill-based training, among many other areas of professional development (Janssen et al., 2020). Based on the question, In this discussion paper, I will identify and provide at least two academic and at least two professional individuals or teams to collaborate with in order to be successful in the MSN program and as a practicing nursing. Additionally, I will also provide an extensive explanation of why I had to identify the said individuals or teams alongside the kind of support they will offer towards my success in the MSN program and as a practicing nurse.

With reference to the question, I have identified and secure the participation of the following (at least two) teams/ professional individuals and academics to collaborate within the MSN program. These network members will include ;

Academic teams

i. IT department.

ii. Library department.

iii. And also, the legal department.

Professional individuals/teams.

i. Management.

ii. Doctors and other clinicians involved in the entire process of diagnosis and treatment workflow.

iii. Pharmacy.

i. IT department.

Reasons for selecting this academic team and how they will support my success in the MSN program and as a practicing nurse:

As a practicing nurse, I selected the IT department as my academic team because I know that as with a well-designed information system and alongside adequate knowledge about will facilitate my success as a practicing nurse. The essence of information technology in nursing practice is not only to streamline various processes but also to provide easy and faster ways of sharing critical medical information, particularly daily updates on the current technologies that aid better workflow in the medical field (Janssen et al., 2020). Perhaps this academic team will be a booster to my profession and will help me succeed in my MSN program, and as a practicing nurse, as it will facilitate easy information flow that is needed for effective and efficient documentation processing of various details regarding treatment, patients care and provision of multiple services that are vital to the patients. As a practicing nurse, I will play an essential role in upholding the highest levels of professional standards of ensuring patients' safety (Janssen et al., 2020). With the collaboration with the IT department, it will be easy for me to provide quality services, a better nursing environment, and perhaps ensure that there is the electronic documentation of patient’s medical information which altogether will create a positive impact on the patient’s perception about healthcare services provided to them.

In a nutshell, the IT department will provide me with the opportunity also to learn more about effective and efficient ways of deploying various technologies in the nursing field as well as the provision of healthcare services in general. Since the IT department provides all the required resources that are informative based alongside long-term solution to current and future challenges, I believe that as a practicing nurse and having selected this academic team, I will be able to get adequate exposure to such solutions, acquire basic knowledge about the use of technology and IT in offering amicable solutions whenever the critical need arises (Elsous, Radwan, & Mohsen, 2017).

ii. Library department.

Library serves as the richest source of knowledge where many people from various professional levels seek to get their thirst over research and enrichment if n their knowledge is quenched. Getting connected with the library department will help me as a practicing nurse will help me achieve my goals and success at large because the library will provide an opportunity that will promote health literacy that will help me as a nurse apply various skills in combating emerging healthcare issues. It is good to note that the nursing field is one of the careers that require constant refreshment and updates about the ever-changing healthcare challenges and the emergence of new diseases that require adequate research and new approaches to control. Therefore, having selected the library department as the academic team to collaborate with will allow me to continue improving my skills and ionize healthcare literacy that will boost my success in the MSN program (Elsous, Radwan, & Mohsen, & Mohsen, 2017).

Additionally, I believe that by selecting the library department, It will be easy for me to access vast resources and knowledge that is available within the facility, which will guide me and help me focus on the MSN program and in so doing know will improve my academic experience a factor that will help me achieve my goals and success altogether (Brettle, Maden, & Payne, 2016).

iii. Legal department.

Reasons for selecting this academic team and supporting my success in the MSN program and as a practicing nurse.

As a practicing nurse will choose to get connected and collaborate with the legal department as it is the most sensitive area in my professional as a nurse due to the existence of legal issues associated with nursing practice. There is a great need to understand all the legal requirements as a nurse and perhaps get exposed to some of the malpractices that need to be discarded and avoided at all costs in the nursing field. Collaboration with the legal department will help me know what is legal and what is not legal when it comes to nursing practice and healthcare services (Brettle, Maden, & Payne, 2016). This knowledge will help me adhere to the medical and nursing standards as provided in legal department guidelines.

Professional individuals or teams.

i. Management.

Reasons for selecting this professional individual or team and supporting my success in the MSN program and as a practicing nurse.

I chose to collaborate with management since I understand that as a practicing nurse, it is quite essential to get adequate exposure to management skills which not only improve and ensure effective utilization of healthcare resources but also crucial in facilitating an efficient workflow system in the healthcare system. Management skills will help me as a practicing nurse to identify and determine various challenges and issues affecting the effective provision of patient-centered care services, an aspect that will offer the opportunity to initiate necessary changes and implementation of nursing policy that will ensure the successful provision of patient-centered services.

ii. Pharmacy.

Getting connected with a pharmacy will help me get adequate exposure to learning about many different types of drugs and the regulations of the use of certain drugs under a specific circumstance, acquire knowledge about features of various medications, side effects, and combinations of drugs that may be used alternatively (Amer, 2019). This department will also allow me to learn more about newly introduced medicine and other development in pharmacology.

iii. Doctors and other clinicians.

I will collaborate with clinicians and doctors since these are resourceful professionals with enough experience in nursing practice. I will benefit from such people by gaining more insights on how the nursing profession needs to be applied for project goals to be realized. This will help me develop confidence and seek help whenever in need so as to solve problems associated with nursing and the provision of healthcare services (Amer, 2019).
