This text will provide a succinct discussion of the academic resources; academic tutor/professor, Walden Library, google scholar/internet worldwide, the local library and how they can be applied to ensure success in the nursing practice in general or in a specialty.
Academic Resource/Strategy 1
Academic Tutor/ Professor
Academic tutors or professors serve as one of the crucial resources on which the MSN program can be reliant. The reason is mainly due to the dire fact that they are experienced in their line of work and are sure to equip the learners with the skills that would not only help them handle examinations and assessments given to them but also effectively handle their career lives as it is expected of them by their future employers. Considering the teaching experience they have mastered over the years, they would play a pivotal role in the MSN program.

In addition, MSN programs require access to information that is not only applicable to the line of study but also relevant to it. Therefore, since google scholar is an accredited website that is distinguished for being the leading source of scholarly journals and articles, it may be applicable to the MSN program.

Local libraries often allow students to undertake research on the various courses they are pursuing at either minute fees or entirely free.
