text-align:center”>Establishing My Academic and Career PathAs you begin the transition from academic courses to career
opportunities, reflect on how the strategies already discussed can help to
guide you through the process. Consider the degree path you have chosen and
what additional skills or activities you should engage in beyond the academic
learning in your courses to be successful. What initiatives and goals do you
have for this career? Begin and continue to establish your academic journey and
career goals. Individual courses within the program will offer opportunities through
assignments that develop particular skills pertinent to specific career
requirements and transfer of acquired knowledge. Other courses and specific
assignments such as interview, practicum, and capstone projects provide
opportunities for students to be exposed to relevant problems and creative
activities in health care. These opportunities will require students to apply
techniques acquired from the classroom to active investigation with experienced
mentors in the field. Research where to find career openings in your chosen field, select a
position you might be interested in, and identify the qualifications and
experience required. Identify these requirements as you progress through the
coursework provided in your program. Take initiative to inquire and explore as
you make connections with your coursework and career goals. Some items to
consider further are membership in a professional association, the use of
Internet job boards for research into future trends, licensure compliance throughout
the country/world, and occupational conditions such as location, shifts worked,
required equipment, or safety standards.Listed below are some suggestions related to the types of
information that you may want to include in this section of the document:1)
Who? Who would make up my network (e.g.,
peers, instructors, professionals, colleagues) essential to success in my
