To prepare:

Review the strategies and tips in the documents linked in this week’s Learning Resources, such as Plagiarism Prevention Resource Kit and Scholarly Voice: Overview, and those presented in “Writing at the Graduate Level.”

Review the Walden University Catalog, Field Experience: College of Nursing, and Programs: DNP Doctoral Project resources to review your program of study and requirements for the completion of the DNP.

Reflect on strategies you might use to ensure success in your program of study and for completion of your DNP degree requirements. For example, consider time management, organization, prioritization, and any other strategies that might be of considerable use in an academic or professional capacity.

By Day 3 of Week 1

Post a brief description of at least one strategy you have used in the past (academically or professionally) that was advantageous in empowering you in terms of one or more of the following skill sets: planning, time management, studying, and effective technology use. Then identify a strategy that you have not yet tried and explain how this strategy may be beneficial, given your strengths and any potential areas of improvement. Be specific and provide examples.
