My Goals and University Vision and Mission
As a nurse for over 10 years and with the advances in technology applied to the
health care arena, I have become more interested in the role of a nurse within
informatics. My professional goal is to work full-time in the area of nursing informatics.
Unfortunately, I knew that obtain this position, I needed to advance my degree. I began
looking into various colleges and universities that can provide me with the education
needed to obtain an advanced degree with a focus in nursing informatics.
After several months of investigating, I located Walden University. At first, I was
drawn to Walden because it offered the flexibility that I needed. However, as I
investigated the university further, Walden’s mission and vision statement resonated
with me. I knew I had made the right choice. The College of Nursing vision and mission
statements described what I felt and thought yet could not put into words. According to
the Walden University College of Nursing (2011a), their vision is for graduates to
transform nursing to meet the needs of communities. Technology is transforming health

care and the degree I will obtain at Walden will help me to assist my organization with
this transformation.
Another reason I was drawn to Walden University was the high standards they
have for all students. The College of Nursing stated in their mission that their program is
“academically rigorous…contextually relevant…” (Walden University, 2011a, para. 4).
This statement matches my academic goal. I am not looking for just a piece of paper at
the end, I am looking to gain the necessary knowledge that I need to make an impact
within my organization.
Incorporation of Social Change
Walden University (2011b) defined positive social change as a “deliberate process
of creating and applying ideas, strategies, and actions to promote the worth, dignity, and
development of individuals, communities, organizations, institutions, cultures, and
societies” (para. 4). I have always had a feeling that I want my life to mean something
and to have an effect on those around me whether it is directly or indirectly. As a nurse,
the will to help others is a core foundation of why I got into nursing in the first place. I
plan to incorporate social change with the knowledge gained at Walden University by
“putting that knowledge into practice” (Walden University, 2010b, para. 3). I plan to
contribute to my field when I graduate by helping lead my coworkers and my
organization through the computerized changes and advancement of technology at
work. While helping others, I will be part of the clinical informatics team as the team
transitions the organization into new computerized programs. NURS – 6003 Discussion Posting Exemplars
