Title:
Publishing an Article in the Clinical Journal of Oncology Nursing: Achieving My Professional Goal Through the Leadership Development Institute

Abstract:
Writing an article about role transition and professional development from the perspective of a nurse new to research was a goal of mine. As oncology nurses, we have a variety of opportunities available to expand our knowledge. With each new role, acquisition of specialized skills occurs over time and before a sense of mastery is felt. This can be a difficult period and one in which supportive resources can help in maintaining motivation. Case studies are a vehicle well suited to introduce a concept to an audience. They are one of the easiest ways to tell a story. Being selected as a 2001 Leadership Development Institute (LDI) Fellow offered me the opportunity to tell a story of one nurse's journey of becoming a research nurse and publishing an article in the Clinical Journal of Oncology Nursing (CJON). Writing is an acquired skill and it requires practice. Publishing enables the author to contribute to nursing knowledge, impact practice, and direct attention toward areas of concern. Presenting a situation in the form of a story or narrative may highlight fears felt by many, but expressed by only a few. For me to write a case study, I applied to LDI program for their guidance, leadership, and support to achieve my goal. Working within loosely structured relationships, I was supported in identifying the skills, resources, and individuals that would become integral in leading me toward fulfilling my LDI project. Most of us have our own set of professional goals, yet sometimes we lack support necessary to achieve them. Oncology Nursing Society's (ONS) LDI offered me support which enabled me to publish an article in the CJON. Additionally, the LDI fosters the ONS mission of promoting excellence in oncology nursing care while training future leaders within oncology nursing. ONS provides options for developing the leader in all of us and has several options to help each of us achieve our own professional goals. Let me share with you how I achieved my goal. Come with me as I share my journey with you on becoming a published author. You can do it, too.
