Respond to both post with 2 references each . NOT TOGETHER . 2 SEPERATE for each post Post 1: Having to start the MSN program was an important decision that I had to take. It was huge because I realized my whole life will be changed. Why? I had to switch to working nights, which I have never done before, I only see my daughter a few minutes in the morning when I get home from work and then maybe 2 full days a week when I am off work. I knew I always wanted to pursue and go further with my education as a Nurse Practitioner in Psychiatry, I just never expected to start so soon, right after a few months from the BSN graduation and NCLEX passing exam. I thought about it a lot prior to starting my job and even when I was in nursing school, and I knew I've always wanted to become a PMHNP. The factors that drove me in my decision were the leadership drive that I possess, my personal provocation, wanting to always do better, and nevertheless the subject that everybody keeps on avoiding: the money. I have a family and in the future, I want to be able to balance better life and work so I can have more time to spend with the family and of course have a quality of life, because money is not everything, but unfortunately, they are critical. Identify at least one professional organization affiliated with your chosen specialty and provide details on becoming a member Walden University states specializing in Mental Health practitioners will help develop my proficiency in psychiatry and will aid in using the knowledge I experience to become a leader (n.d.). I didn’t really have much difficulty making my choice, but I do believe I made the right choice. To me, PMHNP is just another word for leader. Another factor that is driving my decision forward is that leadership, in my opinion, always looks good on a resume. I can use this degree in so many different fields. The AONL states “The successful nurse leader must gain expertise in all three domains: the science of managing the business; the art of leading the people; the leader within” (AONL, 2015). I am interested in leadership and management, so I believe the nurse executive track is the right choice for me. A professional organization that is affiliated with my chosen specialty is the American Organization of Nurse Executives. Joining this organization is simple, just apply online with your information and pay a membership fee. “If you are interested in networking, advancing your career, or taking on more leadership responsibilities, joining a professional organization offers all that and more” (Olin, 2012). I believe joining any organization can teach you a lot about your chosen specialty and educate you in areas that have a different approach than what we learn in our master's program. I want to thank all my colleagues for their amazing posts, from which I have learned a lot, and of course to our professor here who did a great job managing and guiding us throughout this very prosperous term! Post 2 Starting my MSN was a big step for me. I knew I wanted to further my education but wasn’t sure exactly what I wanted in the future for my professional role. With a lot of thought, I chose the nurse executive program. I knew I wasn’t really into informatics and although education seemed interesting, in dialysis where I work, they are phasing our educators out with technology.
