Discussion: Strategies for Addressing
Questions
In Week 1 you began building a foundation for your success by considering a network;
individuals and teams that can help you to clarify and execute on the vision. A network is most
helpful when you are comfortable asking questions. Chances are other members of your network
have experienced similar questions and may have helped guide others toward resolutions that can
be helpful now.
In this Discussion, focus on the questions you are ready to ask as your journey begins. Keep in
mind that sharing questions is often a great way to help others who have similar questions—even
if they do not realize it!
To Prepare:
 Reflect on questions or concerns you might have as you begin the MSN program.
 Consider the individuals, teams, and departments you previously considered in Week 1
and how they may provide support to address these questions and concerns. Then,
identify potential individuals, teams, or departments within Walden or your network that
you can turn to for assistance in answering these questions and/or concerns.
By Day 3

Post any questions or concerns that you are willing to share with the group. The Discussion
Board represents an opportunity to network with your course colleagues, and others may have
the same questions or concerns.
Support main post with 3 of more current, credible sources and cite source within content of
posting and on a reference list in proper APA.
By Day 6
Respond to at least two of your colleagues on two different days, by offering a possible
resolution to their question/concern with supporting documentation, if possible, or expanding on
their thinking and providing an example as support.
Be sure to offer support from at least 2 current, credible sources in each required response to
classmates’ main post and cite per APA.
