POST 1 L. Thorpe Discussion 1 Learning Online Strategy for Success Academic Academic engagement is a multidimensional effort that encompasses the cognitive desire to excel by investing time and effort into time management (Aparicio et al., 2017). As a nursing health care professional, the demands and skills needed to manage a busy schedule require careful planning. The single most useful tool that has contributed to my overall success thus far is time management. Arguedas et al. (2016) point out there is a need to integrate good time management skills in preparing for academic success. Academic success requires focus and educational planning as procrastination reduces academic success. Procrastination is a prevailing phenomenon in the academic settings with a wide range of negative consequences. Procrastination can negatively influence a students well-being and performance. Another common barrier to being successful is inadequate time management and procrastination (Arguedas et al., 2016). Often individuals put off things to the very last moment even after knowing that it will put them in turmoil. Personally, my success stems from always working ahead. Delaying things to the last-minute always results in anxiety and distress. Time and planning ahead can be a kind resource that can increase productivity. Time management is all about how we manage ourselves. It is about finding the smartest and most rewarding way to use every spare time, which includes every waking hour, minute, and second of each day. Beneficial Strategy Good time management skills are essential for students as no one knows the unexpected emergencies that may arise each day. Students need to have practical time management skills daily and weekly for optimal academic success (Cohen & Baruth, 2017). Increasing the quality of activities performed in a limited period of time is the main aim of time management. Prioritizing daily tasks is essential for managing a students time effectively (McDaniel et al., 2016). Deciding on how individuals spend their time is critical in making ourselves productive and more organized. This requires setting goals, prioritizing, planning, and organizing minimizing time-wasting. While time management is beneficial, success utilizing technology is crucial. Learning how to navigate technology will boost and empower students as current technologies are effective in advanced education. Learning how to navigate an online research platform will only accelerate one skill in becoming more proficient. References Aparicio, M., Bacao, F., & Oliveira, T. (2017).

Mediros Walden University and AACN: Social Change On evaluating the similarities in the focus of social change amongst Walden University and the AACNs competencies, I discovered that both concepts are outlined on the advancement of both human and social outcomes. Walden University (2020) social change message is defined as a deliberate process of creating and applying ideas, strategies, and actions to promote the worth, dignity, and development of individuals, communities, organizations, institutions, cultures, and societies. On the contrary, the AACN (2006) envisions the DNP graduate to identify potential systemic changes, implement improvements in the care of the particular patient population to improve the overall outcome of patient care. Meanwhile also demonstrating practice expertise, specialized knowledge, and expanding the responsibility and accountability in the care and management of individuals and families (AACN, 2006). Relates to my Professional/Academic Goal Walden University and AACN efforts of social change relates heavily on my professional and academic goals. As I have mentioned in prior postings, I am a practitioner in a critical care setting, a high-stressed environment, critically ill patients with a variety of disease processes, and constant change occurring. It is exceptionally important to continuously allow for change to occur and to adapt to it. When one becomes resistant to change, it can only result in growth restrictions. I personally believe that if you do not get out of your comfort zone, then you cannot allow for growth to occur. As timid and uncertain my path may direct me, I strongly believe that the change is the ultimate growth process to succeed both professionally and academically. For example, deciding to advance my career path by enrolling the DNP program was frightful for me; especially committing to a long hall of educational demands. Two Goals for Incorporating Social Change within my Professional/Academic My ultimate goals are to become a scholarly practitioner and practice at the highest level of nursing. Brown (2005), describes the direct practice of APN is characterized by the use of holistic perspective, therapeutic partnerships to facilitate informed decision making, positive lifestyle change, use of diverse, evidence-based interventions in health and illness management. I plan on utilizing scientific knowledge and practice expertise to deploy social change and promote high quality patient outcomes. References American Association of Colleges of Nursing (AACN).

The management of time and self-regulation is critical to academic success (Oettingen et al., 2015). Managing a calendar and organizing time is not a strong attribute many individual processes. Time management is about how one manages self. Individuals cannot manage time at the last minute. Time management works well by organizing and prioritizing the activities, which are of prime importance for providing quality care and maintaining a personal and professional balance (Arguedas et al., 2016). Effective time management has been found to lead to a host of positive consequences reaching from high academic achievement. Deciding on how one spends time is very important in making oneself productive and organized. Time management is setting and achieving ones goals and reducing the stress that results from poor time management. As a student, whenever time management is limited, one is unable to think critically to prioritize tasks, which tends to result in missing assignments.
