My name is Yusuf Adegoke. I live in Chicago IL. I graduated from City Colleges of Chicago with Associates in Nursing in 2016, and Resurrection University at Chicago with BSN degree in 2018. I am currently working at John H. Stroger Hospital as a Registered Nurse on medical surgical/tele unit. My hobbies include travelling, watching soccer and listening to music. My career goal is to become a Psychiatric Mental Health Nurse Practitioner and I want to be able use my profession and experience to change the way mental health is viewed in the community. I want to be able educate people about mental health and encourage more people to seek care, providing them with better resources and making mental health more accessible to people. Walden University will give me the opportunity to expand my view on a positive social change in the mental health industry through research and collaborations towards the achievement of my goal. This will lead to effective and efficient intervention in providing care for people with mental health problems and enhance provision of better resources and accessibility to mental health. Also, it will enable me to develop strategies to meet every need of the profession by learning, performing, and generalization of adaptive behavior skills which is required for individuals with mental health problems for them to socialize, adapt and integrate very well within the community.
Incorporation of Social Change
Walden University make provision for many professionals with diverse careers, with the opportunity of equipping themselves into motivated learners and positive social change makers in their various communities (Walden University, 2022). With all the opportunities made available by Walden University through the program, I will be able to carefully plan and develop the skills needed to make it easy for me to accomplish my established goals and support people with mental health problems with better access to resources, encourage them to seek care and making mental health accessible to more people in the community. This will make it easier for people with mental health to socialize and integrate into the community, through behavior intervention, behavior modification, and behavior shaping. My plan for promoting changes involves continuing to acquire the knowledge, identify the issues, educate, and care for everyone I encounter throughout my career to improve health outcomes and quality of life for the community.
Networking is getting to know people and developing personal and professional relationship from there onward. It is like a process whereby one interacts with others to get information and knowledge from them. It is an accurate source of information and knowledge acquisition. Networking will help me in getting the necessary information I needed in developing and improving my skill sets. Meeting new people will allow me to develop new skills, knowledge and help me in improving on my own skills. Networking makes it possible to meet prospective mentors, partners, and gain access to necessary resources will foster professional and academic developments.
