Strategies to Foster Academic Integrity and Professional Ethics

Academic integrity is foundational to scholarly writing, necessitating authors to articulate their ideas authentically while acknowledging and attributing sources appropriately (Walden University, n.d.). The interconnection between academic writing and integrity underscores the moral duty to uphold honesty within educational environments. Plagiarism, the act of presenting others’ work as one’s own, undermines this integrity. Educational institutions like universities have established policies to reinforce ethical standards (Walden University, n.d.). Nevertheless, maintaining professionalism and ethical conduct remains challenging yet pivotal for academic achievement.

Academic Resource/Strategy 1: Collaboration between MSN Students and Walden University Professors

Interacting with professors to review drafts before submission serves to mitigate the risk of plagiarism. Walden University prioritizes collaboration between faculty and students to enrich the learning process and cultivate a diverse community of scholar-practitioners (Walden University, n.d.). Platforms like the class café foster student-faculty interactions, fostering academic discourse and support (Walden University, n.d.).

Academic Resource/Strategy 2: Utilization of Walden University Library

The online library of Walden University offers a plethora of resources from credible sources, facilitating research for non-traditional students juggling work and familial responsibilities (Walden University, n.d.). Peer-reviewed scholarly journals, magazines, and other materials ensure reliability and accuracy (Walden University, n.d.).

Academic Resource/Strategy 3: Accessing the Writing Center at Walden University

Walden University’s Writing Center provides guidance on honing academic writing skills essential for scholarly engagement (Walden University Writing Center, n.d.). Through resources such as APA style webinars and social media tools, students can practice proper referencing and enhance grammar and composition skills. Additionally, the center offers personalized assistance via email and online chat (Walden University, n.d.).

Professional Resource/Strategy 1: Engagement with the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP)

The American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) advocates for high-quality healthcare delivery through practice, advocacy, research, and leadership (American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, n.d.). By upholding core values like integrity, professionalism, and excellence, AANP aims to cultivate future nurse practitioner leaders (American Academy of Nurse Practitioners, n.d.).

Professional Resource/Strategy 2: Mentorship from Pouya Afshar, M.D.

Dr. Afshar, a mentor with extensive expertise in internal medicine, geriatrics, and hospice care, offers invaluable guidance and support. His commitment to healthcare and education serves as a beacon for professional growth and development.
