Include a review of resources and approaches you propose to use as a student and a professional.

Week 4 | Part 4: Research Analysis

I have identified one topic of interest for further study. I have researched and identified one peer-reviewed research article focused on this topic and have analyzed this article. The results of these efforts are shared below.

Directions: Complete Step 1 by using the table and subsequent space below identify and analyze the research article you have selected. Complete Step 2 by summarizing in 2-3 paragraphs the results of your analysis using the space identified.

Step 1: Research Analysis

Professional Practice Use:One or more professional practice uses of the theories/concepts presented in the article
Research Analysis MatrixAdd more rows if necessaryStrengths of the ResearchLimitations of the ResearchRelevancy to Topic of InterestNotes

Step 2: Summary of Analysis

Craft a summary (2-3 paragraph) below that includes the following:

· Describe your approach to identifying and analyzing peer-reviewed research

· Identify at least two strategies that you would use that you found to be effective in finding peer-reviewed research

· Identify at least one resource you intend to use in the future to find peer-reviewed research

. My approach in identifying and analyzing peer-reviewed reach is to assess the quality of articles submitted for publication in the scholarly journal. The author of an article must submit it to the journal editor, who will then forward the article to experts in the field which is consider the “peer review”. The peer review are charged with careful evaluate the quality of the submit manuscript. After which they now check the manuscript for accuracy and assess the validity of the research methodology and procedures, if appropriate and accurate, they will suggest revisions. A peer reviewed journal will not be published articles that fail to meet the standards established for a given discipline, peer reviewed that are accepted articles that are accepted for publication exemplify the best research practices in a field.

. Two strategies that you I would use that I found to be effective in the finding peer-reviewed research are 1. Does the article have been published in a scholarly journal and 2. Is the journal in which I found the article published or sponsored by professional scholarly society; professional association or university academic department. Does it describe itself as a peer-reviewed?

. One research I intended to use in the future to find peer-reviewed research; is to search the online library databases. Many of which include peer-reviewed journals, read the databases description to determine if it features peer-reviewed articles. When search for articles, choose the advanced search option on the search screen to look for a checkbox that allows you to limit results to peer-reviewed only.

Week 5 | Part 5: Professional Development

I have developed a curriculum vitae to capture my academic and professional accomplishments to date. I have also developed a statement identifying one or more professional development goals, and a statement proposing how I might align one or more of these professional development goals with the University’s emphasis on social change.

Professional goals

Maintaining a unique engagement within my professional development will be guided by my professional goals which provide a strong emphasis on necessary changes which help attain improved outcomes within my professional wellbeing. My interests include promoting positive and quality healthcare among patients as well as ensuring that they can receive and lead normal lives.

My professional goals include

1. Provide excellent patient-centered care

2. Increase technology skills

3. focus on continuing education

4. Develop interpersonal skills

5. Become an expert

Attaining these goals requires strong commitment within my work and focus on defining the improved understanding of basic concepts which help create a highly engaged professional development. Attaining my professional goals is a systematic process which will provide a unique emphasis on crucial changes which help maintain an improved level of personal satisfaction.

Self-satisfaction is an important thing that defines my engagement in the helping profession because it provides a strong focus on my personal needs and development goals. My personal goals revolve around having a strong influence on the lives of many people. Having such consideration provides a strong focus on positive values which define a greater emphasis on critical elements that can improve individual development. My values have also formed a significant role in determining my attention to helping others.

I have a strong passion for serving others. Being a servant even when in high positions shows that I share the feeling and experiences of people who need my help. Being available when they need me is integral to achieving a higher level of commitment. Passion helps in determining elements, which represent the decisions that are made regarding the best approach to counter specific problems. It is fulfilling to have a positive influence on the wellbeing of another person especially when the perceived control might be instrumental in shaping his or her future success.

Step 3: Alignment with Social Change

Use the space below to write a statement proposing how you might align one or more of your professional development goals with the University’s emphasis on social change.

Alignment with social change

Social changes are based on the ability to understand the underlying factors which provide a greater emphasis on essential elements which help attain more significant outcomes. My professional goals are committed to creating meaningful social change especially considering the need to provide a unique focus on crucial elements which help define improved outcomes within the healthcare setting. As a psychiatric mental health nurse practitioner, I have an obligation towards my clients who will be positively engaged based on excellent patient-centered care. Technology skills will help in managing patient medical information which is private and confidential.

Working in a culturally diverse healthcare organization has been essential in building a healthy level of commitment where it is possible to achieve the underlying goals. Analytical skills that define my wellbeing include communication skills. Communication skills integrate many concepts which include the complete package. Every individual has needs which are essential in creating a highly diverse understanding of necessary measures that can ensure that I am positively influenced within my work engagement. The development of this plan is aimed at improving my experience across different workplace settings.

Crafting a strong personal, coherent, public identity or brand will be based on my personal and professional development to ensure that there is no conflict between these elements. Therefore, in providing that I develop a strong professional identity communication plan, I will develop an e-portfolio through the institution, which I will use to integrate critical information about myself and my perspective. An e-portfolio is essential considering that employers can access it can assess my quality and ability to improve on my skills and professional development.
