Educational Prep

...Historically nursing and nursing education continues to grow and change. The first nursing program started with Florence Nightingale who laid the foundation of professional nursing with the diploma program. Today, there are three different pathways to become a registered nurse. The three pathways include; the baccalaureate degree program, associate degree program, and the diploma program. All of these pathways allow the student to take the NCLEX-RN and become a registered nurse. What is the difference between the programs and student outcomes if all the students end up with the same licensure? The difference is the technical nurse versus the professional nurse. This paper will focus on the difference in competencies between nurses prepared at the associate-degree level versus the baccalaureate-degree level in nursing. "The existence of multiple pathways contributes to a confusing landscape of nursing education and creates challenges for aspiring nurses as they try to choose the most appropriate type of program in which to enter the profession" (book reference). The associate and baccalaureate programs are available to anyone who wishes to pursue a career in nursing, but the two programs prepare two different types of nurses. The associate degree level nurse is more focused on task oriented practice and are more technical driven and clinically competent. On the other hand, the baccalaureate degree level nurse is more professional and use evidence based practice and advanced......

Education can make difference in one’s life by providing the respect and well career advancement for their future. People often call uneducated person illiterate; without an education a person waste his whole life. Education is a form of learning, usually transferred from one generation to other. It is provided through teaching, training, or research. One chooses his or her career to earn what they want. Every career is different, and they are different in their competencies. Nursing education is another career people choose to go for; they also have different competencies. Licensed vocational nurse has different competencies than associate degree nursing; and Baccalaureate degree different than associate degree nursing. In this paper, we are going to discuss the differences in competencies between nurses prepared at the associate-degree level versus the baccalaureate-degree level in nursing. Competencies Differences The associate program is usually 2-3 years long and it is usually offered at the community colleges. The associate degree nursing students usually learn the knowledge, and skills. These skills are required to care for individuals and families during illness and recovery after medical treatment.

Turner Test Prep Co. Case Study

...SUMMARY Jessica Turner has a master's degree in accounting and an undergrad degree in business. She established Turner Test Prep, a CPA exam review center, after being rejected by the Big Six accounting firms. She decided to bring the company into existence when she was searching for other employment options, and also because she had experience in the field when she worked at a review center's business office before taking up her master's degree. There, she inadvertently started teaching the math portion of the reviews, and received training in teaching. After passing the CPA exam on the first try herself, she decided that she would like to help those who want to take the CPA exam pass on their first try as well. And so she developed a business and marketing plan, convened with various professors to create a comprehensive curriculum, and opened her firm's doors. Instead of the normal review route of using books, software, or online courses, she provided a full service 6 week, 3-6 hours a day review regimen for her clients that include one hour live lectures from various professors, discussions about test taking skills and organizational skills to digest information faster, provided audiotapes that the clients can listen to at home or in their cars, executed timed mini tests as well as practice essay questions, one on one bi weekly client meeting to see how they've progressed and for them to ask questions, and a direct line to her via e mail for any queries the clients may......

Edu Prep

...Educational Preparation: A Comparison Between Baccalaureate and Associate Level Nursing Maridel Cruz Grand Canyon University: Professional Dynamics February 13, 2016 Educational Preparation: A Comparison Between Baccalaureate and Associate Level Nursing Achieving a higher level of education in the nation’s nursing population is a topic that the healthcare industry is currently putting a strong focus on. It used to be that having a nursing workforce composed mostly of associate-degree nurses was sufficient enough to care for the country’s patient population. However, in the past few years more hospitals and nursing employers are moving toward hiring nurses who are prepared at the baccalaureate level to keep up with the increasing complexity of care that is essential to positive patient prognosis. The importance of this change is supported by multitudes of studies and research dedicated to identifying the improvements of patient outcomes, cost efficiency of facilities, and the difference in competencies of nurses prepared at the associate-degree level and those of a baccalaureate level. According to the research shown by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing Fact Sheet, “lower mortality rates, fewer medication errors, and positive outcomes are all linked to nurses prepared at the baccalaureate and graduate degree levels” (Rosseter, 2015). For this reason, it is of great importance to hospitals, nurses, and other patient care facilities that employ them to make......

Debate Prep

...Debate Prep Against the motion: Modern liberalism has moved too far away from the ideas of classical liberalism? Both classical and modern liberals believe that the individual is a building block of society and that each person is different and thus had different strengths and weaknesses. J. S. Mill implied the nature of humankind as a diverse species should be viewed as a strength. The idea of Freedom and protection of individual rights is also common of both strands. These beliefs stem from the Enlightenment theory that individuals are distinct and valuable, with John Locke defines our (God-given) natural rights as "Life, liberty and property". Immanuel Kant views humans as "ends in themselves", implying that and he makes two implications; that individuals are unique, and that they share the same equal status. The general liberal view is that people should have the freedom to do what they want; to live and work and say what they wish. This is not absolute and Mill says in is essay 'On Liberty' that the "only purpose for which power can be rightfully exercised over any member of civilized community against his will, is to prevent harm to others." This view only accepted minimal restrictions to prevent this and thus did not accept self-harm preventing restrictions that are apparent today such as cycle helmet or seatbelt laws. Isiah Berlin explains that there are two "different concepts of Liberty": 'negative', which typically reflects an earlier time......

Case Study #1 Turner Test Prep Co.

...With an undergrad degree in business, a master's degree in accounting, and previous experience as a teacher for a test prep company under her belt, Jessica Turner decided to start Turner Test Prep Co., a California based company specializing in Certified Public Accountant (CPA) exam preparation. After three years of operation, Turner Test Prep Co. possessed about 10 percent of the small market and was facing fierce competition from its rival company, National Testing Services (NTC). By Spring of 2003, Turner was pleased that the number of customers was rising each session, but was concerned that she had not tapped enough of the market and was not growing in the right direction. Furthermore, a lack of student attendance in live lectures caused her to wonder if there was opportunity in formatting the course differently. Finally, Turner realized that she neglected to calculate her break-even point. In short, Turner was questioning the effectiveness of several aspects of her business plan such as her differentiation, marketing, and advertising strategies. At the beginning of this case study Turner starts off making some good choices such as using the effectuation process to come up with her idea to develop a CPA testing prep company. This process leads her to choose a career path and business that makes use of her knowledge, experience, and resources. Another great choice Turner makes is to do research to find a prime location for her business. In addition, it is wise of her......

...Ashley Feeney Level III Pediatric Clinical Prep Room # 66, Unit: 8S Initials: ME Age: 4y/o Female Allergies: NKA Immunization Status: Up to date Date of Admission: 4/7/10 Admitted from: E.R @ACH Past Medical History: small apical VSD, hx of murmur Admitting Diagnosis(es)/Present Illness(es): diagnoses: Positive for Rotavirus Enteritis with dehydration and fever. Pathophysiology of Primary Medical Diagnosis: Briefly explain what is happening and relate briefly to any secondary diagnoses. Rotavirus, like other viruses that cause enteritis, primarily infects the cells of the small intestinal villi, especially those cells near the tips of the villi. Because these particular cells have a role in the digestion of carbohydrates and in the intestinal absorption of fluid and electrolytes, rotavirus infections lead to malabsorption by impaired hydrolysis of carbohydrates and excessive fluid loss from the intestine. A secretory component of the diarrhea with increased motility can further exacerbate the illness. This increased motility appears to be secondary to virus-induced functional changes at the villus epithelium.The pathologic changes to the intestinal lining may not correlate well with the clinical manifestations of the illness. In normal hosts, infections rarely occur in another organ system, although extraintestinal infections have been seen in immunocompromised hosts.The virus is shed in high titers in the stool......
