Howdy, y’all! My name is Caitlin Carlin, born and raised in San Antonio, Texas.  I graduated with my BSN from the University of the Incarnate Word and have been working as a nurse in various areas over the last 11 years including psych, ER, perioperative services, and emergency management.  Recently, I moved an hour outside of San Antonio to the small town of Stockdale (known for tasty watermelons) where I live with my 2 fur babies, a Pitbull named Harley and a Labrador/Shephard mix named Lilly. 

Over the last 2 years, I have found myself exhausted from my nursing career, even considering a career change altogether.  Working with Covid-19 patients and their providers, I noticed that mental health was frequently overlooked.  Through careful consideration and much self-reflection, I decided to pursue a Psychiatric Mental Health NP career to be innovative, educate, promote awareness, treat patients with mental illness, and help communities combat its associated stigma.  When searching for the right university, Walden’s values embodied what I sought, focusing on “quality, integrity, and student-centeredness” (Walden, n.d.).  After my first phone call with my enrollment specialist, I knew this was not only a graduate program but an opportunity for “positive social change [that] results in the improvement of human and social conditions” (Walden, n.d.).  This MSN program was highly recommended by my peers who graduated from Walden.  And for a good reason.  As nurses and lifelong learners, it is essential to “exhibit ongoing commitment to professional development and value of nursing theories/ethical principles (altruism, autonomy, human dignity, integrity, social justice)” (Walden, n.d.).  This is one outcome of the program that aligns with what I envision for myself once completed. 

Networking is essential to achieve my professional and academic goals for many reasons.  It opens doors to meeting new people, forming relationships, and career and learning opportunities.  Today, it would almost be harder not to network with all the resources at your fingertips.  I found it fascinating that according to the UCLA career guide, “80% of all jobs are obtained through networking” (Schmidt, n.d.).  I started to think of the job opportunities I have been afforded, and all of them have been obtained through networking in some way.  Sometimes it’s not about who you know but who you surround yourself with.  Networking allows you to surround yourself with like-minded people to encourage achieving your goals and advance your career.
