This course is exciting because you are just starting your MSN journey. Also, within this course we get to delve into nursing theory and its importance within nursing. We often come into new roles, new experiences, and new information with some preconceived ideas or expectations. The reality does not always mirror what we thought. In this exercise, I would like you to examine your experiences thus far and compare and contrast them to the expectations you had coming into this course. This can be in relation to course content, course expectations, or in beginning the program itself. In reviewing this, please relate how this has impacted you and what you have learned through the experience. What key elements that you have discovered will you incorporate going forward?

As always, this is not a required activity but substantive responses will count towards participation. I do hope that this further helps you reflect on what you are hoping for in your educational journey, where you are now, and how you will utilize what you have learned for the future. I look forward to reading your responses.

I feel my experience starting my MSN journey has been better than I thought it would be. I was nervous about going back to school and working full time. My full time is Monday through Friday, so it is different from when I was working on my BSN and working three 12 hour shifts. I thought my MSN journey would be writing long papers every week. I am glad it is not. There is a balance between papers and other assignments. I do enjoy the discussions and reading other’s posts. For this course so far, I have also enjoyed learning about all of the different advanced practice roles. That is one reason I delayed going back to school because I did not really know what I wanted to do. I also have forgotten how much I really like learning and having a goal. Looking back, I feel I have not had a goal in a long time, and it feels great to be working towards something. I wish I would have started my MSN journey a long time ago. The journey is not easy. I imagine it will get more difficult as I move through the courses, but I am motivated. I have even thought of what I will do next after completing my MSN. Maybe I will continue and work on a doctorate or a MBA, but I have learned not to wait.

As I’m reading your post I realized that most of us kind of have the same tough about going back to school after a long periods of time. I’m glad that I was fortunate enough to return after one year post my BSN. At first I was worried of not able to balance between work ,school and my family . But for the past few weeks through my interactions with peers ,and all of informative posts that I was able read from my professor and classmates changed drastically my Opinions. Obtaining my MSN was a dream that I cherished since I started nursing school. I hope to go furthermore as long as I have the ability to do so . I know there will be a lot of challenges , and I’m ready to embrace whatever that may come with it.I’m enforcing my self to stay on a positive notes by putting God first in everything that I’m doing . With his power everything is possible. And I know for sure that I will make it through the end by his grace. I’m leaving in God’s times by letting him guide my life day by day.

It is always interesting to see if your expectations will resemble reality. I can truly say I had no idea what to expect when starting this journey. I assumed that we would have a lot of online lectures and less discussion posts. Before starting this class, I had a negative mindset on discussion posts; I have always thought they were busy work and a waste of time. However, this class has completely changed my mindset. I have gained so much insight from researching for my own discussion posts and from reading my classmates discussion posts. All of the topics we have addressed have been beneficial information that I had little to no knowledge on prior. The biggest key element that I have learned so far is to have an open mind to different kinds of learning. It is always difficult to get used to new forms of learning, but I am excited to see what else this program has in store.

Now a month into this MSN program, I can say that, even though I didn’t have a clear idea of what to expect, I have

been surprised by many aspects of the program. There is more discussion than I anticipated. I was expecting a more traditional lecture-style learning environment. Even though it’s not what I expected, I am enjoying the short essay discussion format. I’m enlightened by my peers’ responses. I have also learned a lot about advanced practiced nursing roles as well as the history of the science of nursing and nursing theories through these assignments. I am finding that I’m spending more time and energy than I anticipated on trying to master APA formatting. This has been a frustration for me. While I understand the importance of it, I find it to be distracting from the content that we’re studying. I am hopeful that I will continue to improve my fluency with this style of writing. Overall, I am enjoying the program and I’m glad that I chose to take on this challenge. I’m also excited for what doors having my MSN will open for me in the future.

Taking an online course for the first time is very challenging for me. I have taken an online course through American Association of Critical Care Nurse organization during the start of my ICU journey called the ECCO. Nurses have weekly modules that must be completed and there is a quiz at the end. I did not expect that there will be multiple discussion posts and replies per week. I am now adjusting to the change and learning as much as I can. The weekly discussion enabled me to dive in the topic and use my knowledge and experiences. This course also helped me improve my vocabulary and learning new words as I go.

My experience with MSN is better than before. My journey has been excellent as far as I learned many advanced nurse roles and applications. Also, I got detailed knowledge regarding nursing theories and their application in my future advanced nursing roles. When I started this program, I was so nervous and concerned about time management. I had no idea how to utilize my time effectively between family, work, and education. As the weeks moved on, I learned how to manage time and accommodate my activities according to priority. I feel like my journey is a continuous process and this course helped me to get more ideas that what are the roles of advanced nursing, different nursing theories, and the application of these theories in different situations in patient care. All this knowledge helps me to improve my nursing proficiency and skills.

It took me seven years to decide to pursue my MSN journey; I’m nervous about returning to school because I’m not a good writer and am still confused with the APA style, but I love reading. During the first week of this journey, I was constantly checking the forum, and I loved to read all the nursing roles, ethics, and values. By the second week, I realized there were more than 99 posts I hadn’t read. I spent my days off catching up with the reading material and posts. Now four weeks have passed by; I gained more than I expected. The key elements that I will incorporate in my journey are to keep open-minded and expand my worldview. Also, I still need time to master the APA style.
