Assignment 2
The role of a nurse leader as a knowledge worker
Reflect on the concepts of informatics and knowledge work as presented in the Resources. Consider a hypothetical scenario based on your own healthcare practice or organization that would require or benefit from the access/collection and application of data. Your scenario may involve a patient, staff, or management problem or gap.

NURS 6051N

1. In this Discussion, you will consider a scenario that would benefit from access to data and how such access could facilitate both problem-solving and knowledge formation.

To Prepare:

Reflect on the concepts of informatics and knowledge work as presented in the Resources.

Consider a hypothetical scenario based on your own healthcare practice or organization that would require or benefit from the access/collection and application of data. Your scenario may involve a patient, staff, or management problem or gap.

Part 2:

Assignment: The Nurse Leader as Knowledge Worker

The term “knowledge worker” was first coined by management consultant and author Peter Drucker in his book, The Landmarks of Tomorrow (1959). Drucker defined knowledge workers as high-level workers who apply theoretical and analytical knowledge, acquired through formal training, to develop products and services. Does this sound familiar?

Nurses are very much knowledge workers. What has changed since Drucker’s time are the ways that knowledge can be acquired. The volume of data that can now be generated and the tools used to access this data have evolved significantly in recent years and helped healthcare professionals (among many others) to assume the role of knowledge worker in new and powerful ways.

In this Assignment, you will consider the evolving role of the nurse leader and how this evolution has led nurse leaders to assume the role of knowledge worker. You will prepare a presentation with an info graphic to educate others on the role of nurse as knowledge worker.

Reflect on the role of a nurse leader as a knowledge worker.

Consider how knowledge may be informed by data that is collected/accessed.

The Assignment:

Explain the concept of a knowledge worker.

Define and explain nursing informatics and highlight the role of a nurse leader as a knowledge worker.

Develop a simple infographic to help explain these concepts.

Your PowerPoint should Include the hypothetical scenario you originally shared in the Discussion Forum. Include your examination of the data that you could use, how the data might be accessed/collected, and what knowledge might be derived from that data. Be sure to incorporate feedback received from your colleagues’ responses.
A good example of a scenario that would benefit from access to data is a case where a healthcare centre wants to know the number of patients visiting on a daily basis so as to establish whether the available staff is enough. Data of this nature can be collected by registering all the patients that come to seek medical services on a daily basis for a period of one month. Upon registering the patient, the data might be stored in the computer and retrieved when needed. The only people that will be allowed to access such information are the staff members (McGonigle, 2017).

The specific knowledge that will be derived from the data on a number of the patient visit is information on whether there is a shortage of labour force. In any case, the health facility will, for instance, establish that the number of patients visiting the facility is too high when compared to the available number of nurses; this will be taken to mean that there is a staff shortage. It will also be interpreted to mean that the current staff is being overworked and so the quality of health services being provided is more likely to be compromised (Sweeney, 2017).

A nurse leader can use clinical reasoning and judgment in the formation of knowledge from this experience to approximate the overall performance of the health facility being managed. The nurse leader could for example reason that since the health facility is understaffed, it may not be performing well. The nurse leader could judge that the patient feedback is more likely to be negative suggesting poor performance. This is due to the fact that feedback from the patients is one of the tools used to tell whether a health facility is performing well or not (McGonigle, 2017).

When we consider this topic of DNA replication

yurf as an example of peer response

We should take a step back and consider the function of the cell’s nucleus before delving deeper into the topic of DNA replication. The nucleus, which is a cellular organelle, is where the genetic information of the cell is stored. The nucleus is a structure that is found in the center of the cell. The nucleus of the cell is in charge of directing the cellular activity of the organism. This function includes the creation of new molecules such as proteins and nucleic acids, among other things. The deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) found within the nucleus is responsible for regulating protein synthesis. A small amount of DNA can be found within the mitochondria as well. This is an appropriate time to point out that all cells will have a nucleus at some point during their lifetime, but not for the duration of their lives. Do red blood cells have a nucleus, or do they not? No. Red blood cells (RBCs) are also referred to as erythrocytes in some circles. Due to the fact that RBCs do not replicate during their lifetime, there is no requirement for a nucleus, and the cell is recycled when it reaches the end of its lifespan, which is approximately 120 days (Seeley et al., 2014).

Critical Thinking: We must take into consideration the length of time it takes for the cell cycle to complete. How long does it take to complete this task? There is an interphase and a mitotic phase in the cell cycle. The interphase of the cell cycle takes up the majority of the time, whereas the mitotic phase, also known as the M-phase, is the final stage of the process. The M-phase, which occurs at the end of the cell’s division process to produce two daughter cells, may be the most critical step. Here is a video on DNA replication that I used to watch when I was in school. I hope it is of assistance to you. There is a demonstration of how both strands of the DNA helix are unzipped and copied to produce two identical DNA molecules in this video.

I went to this website and discovered a plethora of additional DNA videos! Here’s a question for you: What exactly are these Okazaki fragments?

Incompatibility between mother and fetus in Rh blood type: First vs Second pregnancy

Incompatibility between mother and fetus in Rh blood type: First vs Second pregnancy
Main Post Claimed Topic Incompatibility between mother and fetus in Rh blood type: first or second pregnancy, as an illustration

Everyone has a different blood type, according to research. The ABO blood types A, B, AB, and O are the four blood types that exist in the world. The antigens found in a person’s blood cells can be used to determine that person’s blood type. Rh factor is a type of protein found on the surface of red blood cells that helps them to function properly. The Rh blood group is named after the rhesus monkey, in which the Rh antigens were discovered for the first time in 1940. (Saladin, 2020). Rh antigens are divided into three types: C, D, and E. C is the most common antigen, followed by D and E. Antigen D is the antigen that causes the most reactivity. People who are Rh positive (Rh +) are those who have the Rh antigen in their bloodstream (Saladin, 2020). If a person does not have the antigen, he or she is classified as Rh negative (Rh-) (Pegoraro et al, 2020). When a person’s blood type is mismatched with that of his or her second fetus, such as when the mother is Rh- and the fetus is Rh+, serious health consequences can result, including death from anemia in the mother. It is unlikely that any problems will arise if the mother is Rh+ and the first child is either Rh+ or Rh-. What is it about the first pregnancy that isn’t a problem, but the second pregnancy that is a problem? The mother will not be sensitized as a result of this.

There are usually no problems during a woman’s first pregnancy if she is +Rh- and the baby is Rh. This is true even if she is +Rh- and the baby is Rh. The mixing of fetal blood with the mother’s blood is a source of concern, and this most frequently occurs during delivery (Rh factor blood test, 2018). This results in the mother being exposed to the Rh + factor, which causes her to produce Rh antibodies, which are then used to attack any Rh- fetuses in subsequent pregnancies. An injection of RhoGAM, which contains antibodies to the Rh factor, is given to mothers who are Rh-positive. These antibodies bind to Rh+ fetal RBCs and ‘hide’ them from the mother’s immune system, allowing the fetus to develop normally.

preventing the formation of antibodies against the Rh factor It is necessary to administer the RhoGam shot each time a mother is pregnant with a Rh+ fetus. Saladin et al., 2020).

The RH factor will be tested for a second time during a woman’s second pregnancy by her OB/GYN in order to perform an antibody screen. This test is usually administered around Week 28. If a mother becomes pregnant with a Rh+fetus, the antibodies produced by the mother can pass through the placenta and agglutinate the fetal erythrocytes, resulting in birth defects (Saladin, 2020). This results in the development of a condition known as hemolytic anemia in the children born as a result of this (Saladin, 2020). Why should we be concerned? According to studies, 50 percent of women all over the world are not fully educated on this topic and do not receive immunoprophylaxis as a result of a lack of awareness about the disease (Pegoraro et al., 2020). It has the potential to make the difference between life and death.

W/C 432 is an abbreviation for Western Civilization 432.

Using Critical Thinking: Many women are overjoyed when they discover that they are pregnant. The fact remains that there are some issues that every woman should be aware of. The blood type of the expectant mother is one of the most important issues to be addressed during the first trimester of pregnancy. Rh can be remembered in the following ways: MRh+ BRh+ or BRh- = OK. (M stands for Mom, and B stands for Baby.) MRh- BRh+ = Unfavorable. Knowing one’s RH blood type is extremely important for the health of both the mother and the child during pregnancy. If a woman’s reproductive hormones are incompatible with her fetus, there are treatments available that can help her have a healthy pregnancy and birth. Mom will be able to devote more time to the important things, such as welcoming a healthy baby into the world. Personally, I am currently 12 weeks pregnant with my second child, and I will be having a blood test the following day. As with many others, I was never given a thorough education on Rh incompatibility.

WC 153 is an abbreviation for World Class 153.

A study by the United States government shows that over the past years, human activities have been contributing to climate change not only in the US but also in other countries. Two main concerns as a result of global climate change in the United States are drought and increased raised in water sea level (Gergel, Nijssen, Abatzoglou, Lettenmaier & Stumbaugh, 2017). The two main regions in the United States experiencing drought are the Midwest and Southern parts. Climate experts in the United States indicate that the Western part of the country has been having less rainfall in the past 50 years. Weather specialists indicate that if the climate continues to change, other parts of the country will start experiencing this drought challenge.
One impact that drought is creating in the United States is the reduced production of agricultural products. The reason why agricultural production is reducing is that most extensive farming activities rely on rainfall water (Gergel, Nijssen, Abatzoglou, Lettenmaier & Stumbaugh, 2017). Since climate change has affected the rain patterns, these farmers are experiencing challenges as they seek other alternative sources of water. The other concern of climate change in the United States is the rising sea level in the coastlines. The rising sea level is a result of climate heat up that is melting the glaciers, melting of the sea ice, and diminishing snow cover. The United States government needs to address concerns since they are a major threat to the country. Increased shortage of water can continue affecting agricultural production resulting in famine. The rising seawater level can affect the residents along the coastlines and the water may end up displacing these residents.
Another developed country experiencing challenges of global climate change in Russia. Climate change has occurred mainly in these developed countries due to industrial activities such as the emission of carbon gas and other harmful gaseous materials in the atmosphere. Global climate change has affected Russia’s weather patterns mainly precipitation and the country’s average temperature (Anisimov & Orttung, 2019). The two major concerns as a result of climate change in Russia is increased temperature especially in the northern latitudes and increased health risks as a result of increased temperatures.
Russians weather experts have discovered that the average temperature annually has been rising by over 0.4 degrees Celsius every decade in the Western parts of the country (Anisimov & Orttung, 2019). The increased temperature has resulted in severe changes in the country such as melting of ice cover especially in the northern parts. Glaciers in mountain areas are melting creating changes in the sea drainage basin of the country. In terms of health risks, climate change has resulted to increase in heat intensity from the sun in summer and spring. Direct heat from the sun has heat waves that affect the human skin creating severe disorders in the human body.
Therefore, the national government of Russia has developed strategies to address these two major concerns due to climate change. Failing to address these two climate concerns will result in drought in the future and human health will be at greater risk of diseases such as skin cancer. One of the strategies that the Russian government has taken in addressing these climate concerns is creating awareness among public members concerning how citizens can protect themselves from dangerous heat waves (Anisimov & Orttung, 2019). Another strategy is that the government has enforced regulations on industrial activities that result in the emission of harmful gases contributing to climate change.
Global climate change has not only affected the developed countries but also undeveloped countries that are experiencing the negative impact of climate change. There is a relationship that exists between poverty and climate change since climate change affects low-income communities in developing countries. However, undeveloped countries are not only victims of climate change but also, have contributed to global climate change. Research shows that developing countries have contributed 63 percent of carbon emissions in the atmosphere (Hambira, Saarinen & Moses, 2020). Most of these undeveloped countries are African countries and the most affected country in Botswana.
Over the past years, key climate elements; rainfall, and temperature in Botswana have changed significantly. Change in these key elements has resulted in two main concerns: drought and dangerous heat waves (Hambira, Saarinen & Moses, 2020). Drought has resulted in a shortage of water in the country due to annual low rainfall. Water is an essential resource in such a developing country since water is a driver in various economic activities such as agriculture and industrial production. Also, the shortage of water has affected the health lives of Botswana citizens. The second concern is as a result of dangerous heat waves affecting the human skin directly. These dangerous heat waves are directly coming from the sun due to the presence of carbon and other gases in the atmosphere. These gaseous substances have affected the Ozone layer that is responsible for absorbing direct heat waves from the sun.
The government of Botswana needs to develop strategies on how they can solve drought and dangerous heat waves. Failing to address these two issues will result in cases of food shortage due to drought and human health will be at greater risk due to the direct heat waves. One strategy that the government of Botswana can implement to address the issue of drought is coming up with alternative sources of water that will supply water to citizens continuously. Concerning the issue of direct heat waves, the national government of Botswana can create health awareness of how its citizens can keep themselves healthy from the heat waves.
Public health nurses can implement several health promotional strategies that can act as solutions to the challenges of global climate change. One strategy that public health nurses can play in mitigating global climate change is through mobilization (Lilienfeld, Nicholas, Breakey & Corless, 2018). Nurses are in a good position to mobilize and inform members of society to respond to climate change. Also, nurses can address government officials in advocating for climate change measures. Another strategy nurses can implement in addressing the challenges of global climate change is through research (Lilienfeld, Nicholas, Breakey & Corless, 2018). Nurses can carry out studies by identifying various issues in the environment that can affect the environment negatively.

The following conversation is based on an article about Corona Virus, a modern infectious disease that is spreading over the world. Tanu Singhal’s article, ‘A Review of Coronavirus Disease-2019 (COVID-19),’ provides comprehensive information on the emergence and transmission of Coronavirus Disease-2019 (Covid-19). A unique virus known as Severe-Acute-Respiratory-Syndromic-Virus (SARS) is responsible for Corona Virus sickness, which affects the respiratory system, according to Singhal (2020). (SARS-CoV 2). In September of this year, medical professionals in Wuhan, China, discovered the virus during an out-of-office break in the city.
Tanu Singhal adds that by the end of January 2020, the Corona Virus had spread across a large area, prompting the World Health Organization to designate the virus a global health emergency. “Corona Virus is a global health emergency,” says Tanu Singhal. As of the end of February 2020, the Corona virus disease was spreading around the world in some parts of the world (Singhal, 2020). Following the disorder’s widespread spread, the World Health Organization categorizes the condition as a global pandemic requiring immediate medical intervention. It was COVID-19, which comes from the word Corona Virus 2019, that the World Health Organization assigned to this condition induced by SARS-CoV2.
The article goes on to discuss how the Corona Virus can spread from one person to another by respiratory droplets and various forms of physical contact involving bodily fluids, among other things. Medical researchers in China conducted research and determined that more than 75000 instances of Corona Virus were as a result of transmission through the respiratory system (Killerby, Biggs, Midgley, Gerber & Watson, 2020). Transmission through the respiratory system happens when an infected individual comes into close contact with another who is Corona Virus positive, and this transmission is aided by the symptoms of Corona Virus infection, such as coughing and sneezing. Another way to get the Corona Virus is by contact with infected individuals or by being in the same environment as them.
According to the literature, there is a relationship between the Covid-19 causal agent, susceptible individuals, and the environmental factors that contribute to the outbreak. Due to the fact that a person’s health status influences the transmission of the causative agent to that individual, there is a relationship between the three factors. Certain environmental factors, on the other hand, are influencing the spread of Covid-19’s causal agent, according to the researchers. In terms of susceptible individuals, the elderly and those suffering from chronic illnesses such as chronic respiratory ailments, heart disease, cancer, and diabetes are at a particularly high risk of getting SARS-CoV2 (Kleen, Galdon, MacDonald & Dalgleish, 2020). According to recent research, older persons in several nations are more vulnerable to Covid-19 hazards than their younger counterparts. It is the physiological changes that occur with age that are the most significant factor in increasing the chance of contracting Covid-19’s causative agent in the elderly population. These physiological changes have a negative impact on the health of these elderly people, exposing them to various disorders that are not related to Covid-19. Aging is a biological age characterized by the continuous damage of cells in various parts of the body, some of which are responsible for keeping the body safe from disease-causing organisms, and some of which are responsible for maintaining the body’s ability to fight disease (Kleen, Galdon, MacDonald & Dalgleish, 2020). If this cellular damage continues, the body’s ability to fight external infections, such as the causal agent of Covid-19, will deteriorate. When it comes to older people, a weakened immune system is the primary reason why the Covid-19 causal agent will be more prevalent. SARS-CoV-2 survival on surfaces is influenced by a variety of environmental factors, according to research findings. For example, SARS-CoV-2 is unable to survive for more than three days on surfaces that are directly exposed to the sun. The reason why the Covid-19 causal agent cannot survive on such surfaces is that the extreme intensity of sunlight causes the Covid-19 causal agent to become inactive, which makes it impossible for it to survive (Dabisch, Schuit, Herzog, Beck, Wood, Krause & Ratnesar-Shumate, 2021). As a result of this action of sunlight, it is possible that the proliferation of the Covid-19 causative agent in locations with long periods of sunlight will be limited in these areas. Tropical regions, for example, experience high levels of light intensity throughout the year and should be considered. The flow of air is another environmental component that may have an impact on the dissemination of the Covid-19 causative agent. Even though people are thousands of miles apart, the air conditioner and wind direction have an impact on the propagation of droplet illnesses. Infected areas can be reached by strong airflow from an area having remnants of the Covid-19 causative agent, enabling the spread of the Covid-19 virus to uninfected areas.
Despite the fact that medical practitioners have not yet discovered a direct cure for Corona Virus, public health nurse leaders can play a vital role in reducing the spread of the Covid-19 virus infection. Finding, reporting, collecting, and analyzing medical information on the Corona Virus is one of the most important roles nurse leaders may play in this area. Nurse leaders can be successful in Covid-19 research if they use modern medical resources to accomplish their goals. One of the medical research tools is the evidence-based practice paradigm, which allows them to interact with patients who are recovering from Corona Virus. This is one of the medical research tools (Xu, Yang, Du, Peng, Hu, Wang & Chang, 2020). Applying the evidence-based model on Covid-19 patients can assist nurse leaders to understand the nature and development of Covid-19.
The development of viable mitigating techniques to limit the spread of Covid-19 among the general public can also be done by medical professionals. One of these tactics is to provide health education to members of the public on topics such as safety precautions and personal cleanliness. Health education can have a long-term impact because it can demonstrate to people of the community how proper concepts of cleanliness can become a part of their everyday lives (Gray, Kurscheid, Mationg, Williams, Gordon, Kelly & McManus, 2020). Providers of rapid remedies to patients suffering from ailments related with Covid-19 is another technique that may be implemented by health professionals. However, the Corona Virus is causing complications and the most serious complication is a type of pneumonia known as the 2019 novel Corona Virus-infected Pneumonia (NCIP). Another strategy that medical practitioners can develop to address the spread of Covid-19 is coming up with alternative medical services that will reduce physical contact, especially in health facilities. A good example of an alternative healthcare service door to door services where nurses will treat patients from their homes.

Creating a safe work environment includes keeping workplaces free of “violence, incivility, and bullying,

Posting for Discussion
In order to maintain a safe workplace, it is necessary to eliminate “violence, incivility, and bullying,” according to OSHA (Broome & Marshall, 2021, p. 255). These occurrences can be overt, in which case they are directly targeted at an employee, or covert, in which case they are indirect threats (Broome & Marshall, 2021). In either situation, there is physical and/or psychological harm as a result of this (Broome & Marshall, 2021). As part of their Position Statement, the American Nurses’ Association (ANA) stated that it is a nursing requirement to “create an ethical environment and culture of civility and kindness,” which includes treating colleagues, coworkers’ coworkers, employees, students, and other individuals with dignity and respect (American Nurses’ Association [ANA], 2015). The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) also protects employees from discrimination on the basis of “race, color, religion, sex (which includes pregnancy, gender identity, and sexual orientation), national origin, age (40 years or older), disability, or genetic information,” as defined by the federal government (U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission [EEOC], n.d.). Unfortunately, the scope of this problem is quite broad. It affects many people. Between a quarter and two-thirds of nurses have reported experiencing such a traumatic occurrence (Broome & Marshall, 2021; Clark, 2015).
The issue of workplace incivility is one that affects many people. Recently, I, along with other of my coworkers, filed a formal complaint against a member of administration. Among the things we complained about were gossiping, reprimanding employees in a public setting, failing to respond to safety concerns, and making veiled threats such as “If you like working here, you’ll [fill in the blank].” Following a complaint from my direct supervisor about one of my coworkers, I recognized how toxic my workplace atmosphere had become. It was my response to him that made me feel uncomfortable about expressing my peers’ performance concerns in such a public forum. When I raised my concerns, my manager moved the subject without openly replying to them. Often, uncivil remarks can be dealt with in a straightforward manner at the moment they are made (Clark, 2015). However, that interaction indicated to me that my supervisor was not sensitive to feedback, and as a result, I escalated my complaint up the corporate hierarchy.
The “Clark Healthy Workplace Inventory” was developed to address these challenges in the workplace (Clark, 2015). The ratings range from 20 to 100, with a score of less than 50 being considered unhealthy (Clark, 2015). My final score was a 31. In my nearly 10 years of employment with the same employer, I’ve never found myself in a scenario like this. My employees are amazing people to be around. Everything about my employment is enjoyable, with the exception of my supervisor. If anyone has any suggestions for how to deal with this scenario, please share them with me. If these difficulties are not addressed in a timely manner, I intend to leave my current company. Thank you very much!

Health Indicators and Health Disparities

Nursing
Title: Health Indicators and Health Disparities
Number of sources: 5
Paper instructions:
Public health nurses play an important role in addressing the health needs identified during the assessment process. Only by close examination of health data can health professionals identify health disparities and take steps to address them. Numerous sources of community-level health data are available to guide public health nurses as they partner with communities in the pursuit of health for all. It is vital that all public health professionals have an understanding of the health status of their city, county, region, state, and nation, as well as global health issues of concern. This week, you will analyze health indicators for your own community, identify potential health disparities seen in your own area, and then compare your findings with your classmates from across other localities.
For this Discussion, you will examine multiple localities to identify health disparities within and across states for a given health indicator.
To Prepare:
• Review this week’s Learning Resources.
• Take the Health Equity Quiz found on the Unnatural Causes website.
• Research health indicators (outcomes) for your state, city, and/or county.
• Research a state other than your own that is similar demographically with higher health indicators.

Post a health indicator for which your state ranks high and explain why you think your state ranks high on this indicator. Then, identify a health indicator for which your state ranks low and explain why you think your state ranks low on this indicator.
Compare your findings to a state that is similar to yours demographically but has higher indicators. Explain why you think this state is achieving higher health indicators than yours.

Health Indicators and Health Disparities are two important topics in public health.
Name of the student, institution, and date
Health indicators are a way of summarizing information about the health of a population or the performance of a system in use. Among the most widely used health indicators in the United States is life expectancy, which is measured in years. The calculation of life expectancy begins at birth and estimates the length of time an individual born today would live if the present mortality rates for all age groups remained constant throughout the course of a person’s life. The length of one’s life is a measure of the quality of healthcare available in various geographical places. Despite having similar demographics, Michigan County has a long life expectancy and a low mortality rate, in contrast to Wisconsin, which has a declining mortality rate and a rising life expectancy.
County Health Rankings and Roadmaps data revealed that the life expectancy in Michigan County is rather high, with an overall average of 78.1 years, according to the data collected by the organization. The figure represents an average distribution across different races, with Asians having an average age of 90.9 years, blacks having an average age of 73.6 years, whites having an average age of 78.8 years, Hispanics having an average age of 81.9 years, and people of other races having an average age of 77.2 years (County Health Rankings & Roadmaps). The numbers show an increased trend, growing from 76.2 years in the year 2000 to 76.2 years in the year 2010. Michigan’s life expectancy is very close to the national average of 77.9 years, which is the highest in the country (County Health Rankings & Roadmaps). According to these figures, the quality of healthcare in Michigan is superior than that of other states in the United States.
It is likely that the improved adoption of healthcare services and the improvement in living standards in Michigan contributed to the state’s increasing life expectancy. The percentage of uninsured is comparatively low, with an average of 7 percent, compared to a national figure of 10 percent, according to the latest data. A high rate of insurance enrollment indicates that more individuals are taking advantage of health-care services, improving their health, and living longer lives (Klein, & Huang, 2010). People’s living standards are also excellent, as evidenced by the fact that the median household income is a towering $59,500 and that an overwhelming 82 percent of the population can afford automobiles (County Health Rankings & Roadmaps). Income inequalities in Michigan are also very low, at 4.6, compared to a national average of 4.9, which suggests that people in Michigan can afford healthcare and take good care of themselves. Another indication of Michigan’s high living standard is the fact that the state’s income inequalities are also very low, at 4.6, compared to a national average of 4.9.
Michigan has a low mortality rate, which can be attributed to the minimal number of deaths that have been reported. Low rates of child, newborn, and premature death are observed in the county when age-adjusted mortality is considered. There are also few deaths due to overdoses, motor vehicle crashes, and other causes of death in the United States (Klein, & Huang, 2010). The mortality rate must decrease as a result of a decrease in the number of deaths. Increased accessibility to health-care services is a second factor that could have resulted in a reduction in mortality (Klein, & Huang, 2010). The population-to-healthcare-provider ratios are much lower than the national average, allowing for greater access to healthcare providers and, consequently, greater utilization of healthcare services (Burrows et al., 2018). According to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services, the population to primary care physician ratio is 1,270:1, suggesting that one primary care physician serves 1270 people. In comparison, the ratio for the rest of the country is 1,320:1, meaning that a primary care physician in Michigan serves a larger number of people than a primary care physician in the rest of the country (County Health Rankings & Roadmaps: Michigan). People in Michigan also participate in preventative healthcare services such as flu vaccinations and mammography screenings, with participation rates in Michigan significantly higher than those in the rest of the country.
While Wisconsin has a demographic makeup that is very similar to Michigan’s, the state’s overall mortality rate has been increasing in recent years. This is remarkable given the fact that the county had lower rates of chronic disease fatalities, infant mortality, and premature age-adjusted mortality than the national average (CDC, National Center for Health Statistics: Wisconsin). Wisconsin’s old population is expanding, and people are living longer lives as a result of this. An rising proportion of deaths are being caused by unintended injuries such as falls, drowning, drug overdoses, motor vehicle accidents, and poisonings, rather than purposeful causes (CDC, Injury prevention & control). Deaths from unintentional injuries are usually a result of environmental factors, such as the degree of urbanization. A decline in urbanization increases the risk of injury mortalities.
In conclusion, health indicators tell of the wellbeing of a community or a county. Michigan’s health indicators show an improvement in people’s wellbeing. It has an increased life expectancy and low mortality rate because people increasingly have access to medical care services. But, the situation is slightly different in Wisconsin county because although there has been an improvement in the provision and the uptake of healthcare services, the mortality rate continues to rise over time. The increasing deaths result from increased unintentional injuries, which are a factor of the decline in urbanization.

Disaster Planning for Public Health

Assignment 2: Disaster Planning for Public Health
Select a potential natural or man-made disaster that could happen in your community. Then, write a 3-page paper about the disaster from the community nurse’s perspective.
Section 1: The Disaster, Man-Made or Natural
What disasters may strike your community and why? For example, do you live in “Tornado Alley,” or has climate change resulted in unusual cold weather snaps or blizzards in your community? Are you located in a flood plain? Include possible diseases that may result from a natural disaster, such as tetanus or cholera.
Section 2: The Nursing Response
Formulate responses to the disaster, considering systems and community levels of intervention.
 Review websites where a disaster plan may be available for the public, or if one is not currently available, call public health department to see if a disaster plan exists for your community and what the plan contains.
 In addition to reviewing websites for information about your local disaster plan, you will need to locate best practice/evidence-based practice guidelines in professional literature to determine whether your community’s disaster plan is as sound as it might be or if there is room for improvement.
 Section 3: Is My Community Prepared for a Disaster?
 What conclusions can you draw about your community’s preparedness plan from having completed this evaluation?

A disaster is a serious problem that can occur for a short period of time or for an extended period of time, causing problems for humans and the environment. There are two types of disasters that can occur in a given region: disasters caused by humans and disasters caused by nature (Novellino, Jordan, Ager, Bateson, Fleming & Confuorto, 2019). When a disaster is caused by human activity, it is referred to as a “man-made disaster.” Natural disasters, on the other hand, are dangerous events that occur as a result of natural processes that are beyond human control. A volcano eruption, which is a natural disaster, is the most likely disaster to occur in my community, and it is the most likely disaster to occur. The fact that my community is located at the foot of a volcanic mountain increases the likelihood of a volcanic eruption.

A volcano eruption is a sudden break in the earth’s surface that allows ash, gaseous substances, and lava to erupt and spread over a large area of the planet (Inan, Beydoun & Pradhan, 2018). As a result of this eruption, a mountain adjacent to my community was formed, resulting in a long-term climate change. The mountain next to my community is a volcanic mountain, but there are no signs that it will erupt anytime soon, despite its volcanic nature. The majority of active volcanic mountains show signs of eruption that can be detected early enough by scientists to issue a warning before an eruption occurs. Frequent earthquakes and large areas of hot ground are two signs that a volcano is about to erupt, among other things. However, because a volcanic eruption is a natural disaster that is beyond the control of humans, I cannot consider my community to be sufficiently protected from an eruption.

A volcanic eruption has the potential to cause health problems in my community, and it is possible that these problems will arise. In the majority of cases, volcanic eruptions produce ash particles, which can cause silicosis if inhaled by a person who is exposed to the volcanic ash particles. Silicosis is a chronic body disorder that affects the lungs, causing breathing difficulties and lung scarring as a result (Sato, Shimosato & Klinman, 2018). Silicosis is derived from the word silica, and it occurs when a person comes into contact with silica crystalline particles, which are present in the environment. Silicosis is a dangerous health challenge for a human being because it results in long-term breathing difficulties for the individual.

In addition to short-term health challenges, mountain eruptions have the potential to cause long-term health challenges in my community as well. As a result of volcanic gases being released into the atmosphere, people can experience respiratory difficulties such as runny noses, wheezing, and sore throats (Mueller, Cowie, Horwell, Hurley & Baxter, 2020). Eye infection caused by volcanic gases is another short-term health hazard caused by volcanic gases. Itchy eyes, continuous tearing, and corneal abrasions are all possible symptoms. Skin irritation is another short-term health effect that can occur in my community as a result of a volcanic eruption, particularly when the volcanic particles come into contact with water.

Heart disorders are another issue that my community members may have to deal with as a result of the eruption. As a result of the increased concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere caused by volcanic gases, heart disorders can develop (Mueller, Cowie, Horwell, Hurley & Baxter, 2020). When an individual breathes in air that contains more than 3 percent carbon dioxide, the heart rate of that individual increases as the body attempts to restore balance to the carbon dioxide levels in its own body by exhaling more carbon dioxide. In addition to cancer, volcanic eruptions can cause long-term health problems for members of my community. Inhaling air that contains traces of metal elements can result in the accumulation of metal particles in the body, which can lead to the development of cancer later on in life.

Because volcanic eruptions are natural disasters that are beyond the control of humans, scientists have not yet discovered a way to completely stop a volcanic eruption from occurring. Scientists in the field of geography are still studying eruption processes, and they may be able to develop permanent methods of preventing an eruption in the future. Scientists, on the other hand, have devised means by which human beings can protect themselves from the dangers of a volcanic eruption in the future (Sato, Shimosato & Klinman, 2018). In accordance with scientists’ recommendations, my local government officials have put in place some disaster plans for the communities that live around this volcanic mountain. Further to this, health professionals and other non-governmental organizations have developed health strategies to assist our community members in the event of a volcanic eruption.

An evacuation program, for example, is one strategy that my local government has implemented to protect the members of my community. Because scientists can detect a volcanic eruption in advance, the national government’s evacuation program will be able to assist my community members in evacuating the mountain region before it becomes too late. Another strategy that the local government has implemented to protect the residents of my community from the effects of a volcanic eruption is the provision of pre-designed building plans. The local government has provided guidelines on how residential buildings in my community, particularly those with doors and windows, should be designed by contractors. Residents of well-designed buildings can be protected from hazardous gases that may be released by the volcanic mountain without the residents’ knowledge.

However, health professionals have developed strategies for responding to a volcanic eruption, which they have implemented in collaboration with other non-governmental organizations (NGOs). For example, health practitioners are providing health education to the public about how to respond to a volcanic eruption, which is one of the strategies being implemented. In this health education program, these health professionals are guiding members of the community on how to dress in protective clothing that covers their entire body when exercising. Another important component of the health education program is the discussion of how community members can respond to challenges such as respiratory problems caused by hazardous gases in the environment. My community, when compared to the practices health practitioners have implemented around Mount Sinabung, I believe it is relatively safe from a volcanic eruption (Sato, Shimosato & Klinman, 2018). The reason why I believe my community is safe is that all of the measures implemented by health practitioners in Mount Sinabung correspond to the measures implemented by the local government in our community.

Finally, my community is well-prepared for disaster management, particularly in the event of a volcanic eruption, as previously stated. One thing I’ve learned about my community’s preparedness for disaster management is that its members rely on the local government to ensure their safety in disaster situations. Other observations include the fact that my community has demonstrated a strong willingness to adapt positively to any changes that may result from natural or man-made disasters.

Antisocial Personality Disorder: Differential Diagnosis is the first step in making a decision.
The most appropriate course of action is to identify the patient with antisocial personality disorder (ASPD). The diagnosis was made as a result of the presence of symptoms that were comparable to those associated with the illness. When someone has antisocial, criminal, or irresponsible behavior, they are said to have an antisocial personality disorder (Black, 2017). It is characterized by aggressive and impulsive behavior that is not considered harmful. The disorder is characterized by the inability to maintain social relationships for an extended period of time (Van den Bosch et al., 2018). Those that engage in antisocial behavior are callous and disrespectful of others, and they lack empathy. They also violate the rights of others and exploit them for their own personal benefit.
According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, persons who have a history of disobeying the law or disrespecting others on a consistent basis are most likely suffering from antisocial conduct (Van den Bosch et al., 2018). Rhoda, for example, has a history of breaking the law and assaulting her pals without feeling sorry for herself. She has spent time in jail or had run-ins with the law on numerous occasions for a variety of reasons. One of the most crucial criteria for the diagnosis of antisocial behavior according to the DSM-5 is failing to meet financial responsibilities (Van den Bosch et al., 2018). According to the findings of the case study, the patient was unable to meet his financial responsibilities, which included paying for the car. In addition to having her car repossessed, she had borrowed more monies from a friend, which she had failed to repay on time.
People who engage in antisocial behavior are more likely to take drugs. People that exhibit antisocial conduct are more likely to abuse or traffic drugs, according to the DSM-5 criteria (Black, 2017). Rhoda has been taken into custody on suspicion of being in possession of a controlled drug. The fact that she is in possession of a firearm is just another sign of her lawless character. Rhoda is suffering from an antisocial personality disorder, as evidenced by the wide range of symptoms that correspond to the DSM-5 criteria.
When making the diagnosis of antisocial personality disorder, it is important to note that the symptoms of the disease are identical to those listed in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) issued by the American Psychiatric Association (Black, 2017). Another technique for making a diagnosis is to look into the patient’s personal and medical background. Patients’ ideas, feelings, relationships, and behavior can all be explored by psychologists through the use of an evaluation (Black, 2017). For example, in the current case study, the patient demonstrates that she has bad interpersonal ties with others. The symptoms correspond to the criteria set out in the DSM-5 manual (Kolla & Houle, 2019). Although diagnosis is effective after the age of eighteen, an early diagnosis can enhance the result of the patient. Rhoda is 32 years old, which makes her an excellent candidate for an accurate diagnosis.
The anticipated effect of making the decision is the beginning of therapy and support for the patient who has been diagnosed with antisocial personality disorder (ASPD). Early therapy, according to evidence-based practice, is associated with favorable outcomes (Kolla & Houle, 2019). For example, close follow-up with patients over an extended period of time can help them modify their behavior and relationships.
The outcomes were consistent with my expectations from the moment I became aware of the client’s bad interpersonal relationships and actions toward others. Due to the fact that she seemed to be in a bad relationship, I predicted that the customer will engage in antisocial behavior.
Decision #2: Develop a Psychotherapy treatment plan.
The most appropriate second decision in the treatment plan is to refer the patient to a psychologist for further examination and treatment. Psychologists are equipped with the knowledge, skills, and instruments necessary to assess symptoms and behavior in order to establish the presence or absence of illnesses (Kolla & Houle, 2019). Another advantage of consulting with a psychologist is the capacity to identify and treat comorbid conditions. A psychological evaluation evaluates the feelings, relationships, conduct, family, social, and medical histories of the person being evaluated. Psychologist (Jiang et al., 2017). Referring the patient to a psychologist is necessary to guarantee that the patient receives effective treatment through talk therapy. According to Jiang et al. (2017), talk therapy is effective in the treatment of antisocial personality disorder since it involves exploring thoughts, feelings, and worries, working on changing negative habits, practicing self-reflection and awareness, and developing coping strategies for different situations.
After four weeks, the client returns to the clinic with a psychological report from the psychologist. According to the study, the client suffers from several personality problems (Jiang et al., 2017). As part of the diagnostic clarification process, the psychologist conducted a full psychological assessment. According to the report, the patient is suffering from multiple personality disorders, but antisocial behavior has the highest score (Azevedo et al., 2020). The psychologist confirmed that the patient had antisocial personality disorder, which had been previously diagnosed.
When Rhoda returns to the office, we review the psychologist’s report together. She is upset about the report but is willing to take measures to improve her condition. She states that “well, that’s why I am here, to get better … what do I need to do?” The statement shows she is ready to start the treatment process. The best treatment approach for the condition is talk therapy (Azevedo et al., 2020). Psychotherapy is effective if the client accepts she has a problem and needs to improve.
Getting a qualified report from a psychologist is effective in starting early and custom treatment. The patient will start psychotherapy treatment which will generate better results such as healthy social behavior and adherence to the law. Lack of accurate diagnosis will lead to poor treatment, which can lead to adverse mental conditions (Baumgartl et al., 2020). For example, it was important to clarify that the condition is not a result of illegal behavior.
There is no difference between the expected diagnosis and the psychologist’s clarification of the patient’s health condition. The expected outcome is a result of the symptoms such as poor relationships with others and breaking the law (Baumgartl et al., 2020). Rhoda is suffering from antisocial personality disorder despite the diagnosis of multiple personality disorder. The diagnosis is effective since the patient can start actual and early treatment.
Decision #3: Treatment Plan for Psychopharmacology
Treatment of antisocial personality disorders with medication can put a patient with antisocial behavior at risk of diversion or misuse (Jiang et al., 2017). One of the best prescriptions is to begin Latuda 40mg orally daily. However, evidence-based practice shows that the medication is not appropriate since there are no FDA-approved medications for antisocial personality disorder (Jiang et al., 2017).
The best decision apart from psychopharmacology is to refer a patient to group-based cognitive behavior therapy. The approach has been effective in treating personality disorders among patients (Jiang et al., 2017). It is not effective to use dialectical behavior therapy since it has no record of improving the patient’s condition. Group therapy is effective since it is tailored to meet the needs of the patients (Baumgartl et al., 2020). For instance, individuals with antisocial behavior may be comfortable discussing their experiences with other people with similar behavior.
Ethical Considerations
The first ethical consideration during the delivery of care is informed consent. The patient is above 18 years and thus she can make decisions regarding treatment. During every stage of the treatment, it will be critical to obtaining informed consent (McDermott-Levy et al., 2018). The approach ensures patients participate in the care process, making them part of the decision-making process. Obtaining informed consent improves adherence to the treatment plan (McDermott-Levy et al., 2018). Practitioners should not use coercion or force to provide care to the patients.
The second ethical consideration is maleficence and beneficence. The focus is to use professional knowledge to provide the best care and reduce the risk of medical harm (McDermott-Levy et al., 2018). During the treatment, it was vital to clarify the diagnosis of antisocial personality disorder. For instance, sending Rhoda to a psychologist is effective in getting relevant information about the diagnosis. Prescribing medication to the patient can put them at risk of misuse and diversion. It is important to consider group therapy since it generates better results (Black, 2017). Professionals have a responsibility to use their knowledge to improve the health of the patients and reduce the risk of harm.
Justice is another important ethical consideration in the delivery of care. Healthcare workers should ensure they provide quality care without discriminating against patients on an ethnic basis (McDermott-Levy et al., 2018). For instance, Rhoda is a Hispanic, an ethnic group currently experiencing inequality in the delivery of care. Justice is important to ensure the delivery of care irrespective of the ethnic background of a patient.
Conclusion
Delivery of care is a robust exercise that involves diagnosis, treatment, and ethical considerations. The case study of Rhoda who has antisocial personality disorder shows the need to take precautions to improve the quality of care. The first decision is to diagnose a patient and aligning the diagnosis with the DSM-5 criteria. The second decision is to refer the patient to a psychologist for clarification of the antisocial personality disorder. The third decision is to refer a patient to group-based cognitive behavior therapy and not prescribing medication. Treatment of antisocial personality disorders with medication can put a patient with antisocial behavior at risk of diversion or misuse. The ethical considerations during treatment include informed consent, maleficence and beneficence, and justice and fairness. Observing the ethical principles will improve the quality of care and health outcomes.

Academic Success and Professional Development Plan Part 4: Research Analysis
The selected integrative literature review article is by Nibbelink and Brewer (2018) on the topic decision‐making in nursing practice. Researchers and students can find the article through the link https://doi.org/10.1111/jocn.14151 or https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1111/jocn.14151. The role of the article is to investigate the role of decision-making in the nursing practice.
The concepts presented in the article indicate that nurses utilize various factors in the decision-making process. The factors include awareness, autonomy, situation, understanding the patient situation, and education. For instance, the article indicates that nurse bring a variety of experiences in their practice. Nurses handle patients depending on their level of education and past experiences with similar patients.
Topic of Interest: Decision-making in nursing practice
Research Article: Include full citation in APA format, as well as link or search details (such as DOI) Nibbelink, C. W., & Brewer, B. B. (2018). Decision‐making in nursing practice: An integrative literature review. Journal of Clinical Nursing, 27(5-6), 917-928. https://doi.org/10.1111/jocn.14151

Professional Practice Use:
One or more professional practice uses of the theories/concepts presented in the article The practice issue include the role of decision-making factors in the practice of nursing.
Research Analysis Matrix
Add more rows if necessary Strengths of the Research Limitations of the Research Relevancy to Topic of Interest Notes

The article is peer-reviewed. The article is generalized and does not cover specific areas of decision-making The topic is relevant since decision-making is essential in the nursing practice. Nurse students and nurses can use the article to understand the value of decision-making factors in their daily practice.
Justification of the Article
I would recommend the article in the nursing practice since it highlights some of the factors that influence decision-making. The factors include awareness, autonomy, situation, understanding the patient’s situation, and education. Nurses should be aware of the factors that influence their decision. The factors can influence the decisions positively or negatively.
Academic Success and Professional Development Plan
I will add the article to the academic resources that I will use to enhance my decision-making process in the nursing practice. My approach to identifying and analyzing peer-reviewed research is to find out the methodology, the theories, findings, and summary of the article. The information will help me to identify if an article is important in the nursing practice. One of the strategies that I used to locate the appropriate article is to find peer-reviewed resources in the university library. I had to set the parameters such as finding an article that is at least five years old and indicating that the article should be peer-reviewed. The second approach is to indicate the topic clearly to help me locate the appropriate materials.
The resource I intend to use in the future is by White et al. (2019). The article deals with the benefits of using decision-making to eliminate fear and anxiety among nurse students. The article is important to help nurses determine the best decisions without feeling anxious. The approach is effective in improving the quality of decisions and patient outcomes.

You can rely on her for professional advise and moral support throughout your education and career. She helped me figure out my career path.

Part 4: Research Analysis

Nibbelink and Brewer (2018) wrote an integrative literature review on decision-making in nursing practice. The article is available online at https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/abs/10.1111/jocn.14151. The article’s purpose is to study decision-making in nursing practice. The article’s ideas show that nurses consider many considerations when making decisions. The factors are awareness, autonomy, situation, patient understanding, and education. For example, the article states that nurses have a wide range of experiences. Nurses treat patients based on their education and prior experience.

Research Strengths
Research Relevancy to Topic of Interest Notes
A peer-reviewed article
The article is too general to cover specific decision-making areas.
The topic is crucial since decision-making is vital in nursing.
The article can help nursing students and nurses comprehend the importance of decision-making elements.
Article Justification
I would recommend the paper in nursing practice because it highlights some of the decision-making considerations. Factors include self-awareness, autonomy, situation, and education. Nurses should be aware of their decision-making variables. Factors can positively or negatively impact decisions.
Academic and Professional Success Plan
I will add the paper to my academic resources to improve my nursing decision-making process. To locate and analyze peer-reviewed research, I look for the article’s methodology, theories, findings, and summary. The data will help me determine an article’s relevance to nursing practice. Finding peer-reviewed resources in the university library was one of my tactics for finding the right article. I had to specify parameters like identifying a five-year-old article that should be peer-reviewed. The second method is to explicitly indicate the topic.
I’ll be using White et al. in the future (2019). The article discusses using decision-making to reduce fear and anxiety in nursing students. The article is vital in assisting nurses in making sound decisions. The method improves decision-making and patient outcomes.

Academic Success and Professional Development Plan
Part 1: Developing an Academic and Professional Network

When was the last time you read Devotions Upon Emergent Occasions and Several Steps in my Sickness—Meditation XVII?

Unless you are a student of 17th-century poetry, you may not be all that familiar with this piece by author John Donne. However, you may be much more familiar with one of its well-known phrases: “No man is an island.”

As you begin your journey toward achieving your academic and professional goals, you have a great opportunity to network with academics and professionals who can help ensure you do not travel alone. This network can help to clarify your own vision for success and can help guide you now and in the future. To paraphrase Donne, no one is an island. Academic Success Professional Development Plan.

Academic and Career Plan Template

Sally Corbin, RN

17 Jan 2020

In today’s business world, advanced preparation is critical to achieving academic and professional success. Professional and academic success depends heavily on the network built. The network consists of specialized team members and individuals who contribute to academic and professional achievement in medicine (Siciliano et al., 2018). So, this paper outlines numerous academic and professional connections that have helped me succeed academically and professionally as a practicing nurse.
For example, my academic performance as a nurse practitioner would be dependent on my instructor and classmates’ support. It would be motivating as a Registered Nurse and Nurse Practitioner to have professors and peers help guide the study process. If I need help with research, study, or course completion, the instructor is always willing to help (Siciliano et al., 2018). Academic friends also help me succeed in class by helping me understand concepts that the instructor may not have covered.
Professionally, it is also important to establish relationships that can help you succeed at work. Having a strong network in the medical sector is critical to a successful career. Having a nurse and nurse practitioner mentor has also helped me become a good RN. The nurse practitioner would guide me through my practicals and rounds as a new nurse practitioner. The nursing mentor would choose what is best for me and how I may advance professionally. It also increases your chances of getting considered for future Nurse Practitioner Psychiatric positions.

A/P Networking Week 1 | Part 1

The academic and professional networks I have chosen to aid me through the Nurse Practitioner program are listed below. Each network member helps me advance my career.

MEMBER 1

Imtiaz Rsaul

Dr. Rsaul

Jacksonville Psychiatric Assoc.

Academic or Professional:

Why I chose this person/team and how they will help me succeed in the MSN program and as a nurse:

Dr. Rsaul is an adult and child psychiatrist. I chose him as my mentor because of his extensive psychiatric experience. His practical experience and skills can help me become a better Nurse Practitioner. As a former patient, he often maintained, “To obtain optimal health is to strive both physically and mentally.” Like Dr. Rsaul, I strive to be a nurse practitioner who treats all patients equally. Quality is indisputably important in all care interventions, and reviving the patient’s life is always necessary. I will guarantee that every patient appointment is tailored to their current and future health needs.

MEMBER 2

University of Walden

Facility & Staff

Walden University

Academic vs. Pro: Academic

Why I chose this person/team and how they will help me succeed in the MSN program and as a nurse:

I picked Walden University for its academic support. Instructors aid us along the way by delivering online education and training. With the instructor’s experience, we will learn the essentials of becoming a Nurse Practitioner (Acharya et al. 2017). The Walden University Staff provides support and tools for success.

NETWORK 3

Salutation to the personnel & facility

Facility & Staff

Welcome Home

Academic or Professional:

Why I chose this person/team and how they will help me succeed in the MSN program and as a nurse:

I chose Welcome Home because of their help. It is critical to have workplace support to advance in the job. Welcome home gives me the motivation and support I need to excel in school and in life (Jackson, 2017). They have inspired me to follow my dream of becoming a mental nurse practitioner.

MEMBER 4

NIMH

Facility & Staff

NIMH

Academic vs. Pro: Academic

Why I chose this person/team and how they will help me succeed in the MSN program and as a nurse:

The National Institute of Mental Health website provides Nurse Practitioners with career guidance and mental health information. This tool can help me read articles written by doctors who have conducted actual research. All of the techniques I’ve acquired can help me succeed as a nurse practitioner student.
Conclusion
The chosen professionals and academics are known to help me achieve my goal of being a successful practicing nurse. For example, in academics, professors and classmates guided me through the activities that were essentially encouraged to become one of the leading performers in medical classes (Jackson, 2017). Professionally, the chosen persons aided in adapting to professional procedures and evaluating the aims required to become a successful operator in hospitals (Siciliano et al., 2018). Having a strong network of professional and academic teams and individuals will help the nurse practitioner transition into her new career.

Week 2 | Resources and Strategies

In general, or in my specialty, I have identified the following academic resources and/or strategies.

Directions: Identify and describe three academic resources or methodologies relevant to the MSN program, and three professional resources relevant to nursing practice in general or your specialization in particular. Explain how you plan to use these tools academically and professionally.

RESOURCE/STRATEGY 1

My study plans will be based on my current employment and future career aspirations. I will use the Walden University Writing Center as an academic resource. My goal is to learn as much as I can about the nursing profession. Studying the writing center’s academic materials will help me increase my expertise. The writing center will also help me improve my writing skills by teaching me about different referencing techniques. Using the university writing center will help me learn a range of topics and finish my course quickly. Part 3: Promoting Academic Integrity and Professional Ethics

SCHOOLS/STRATEGY 2
My professors will be useful throughout my course. Our lecturers have access to academic resources and information essential for nursing success. Having them as a resource will help me obtain important information about becoming a registered nurse. My teachers can also help me choose the right policy and support groups for my study. To create positive relationships with the MSN course lecturers is my goal. So I can get all the help I need for my studies.

SCHOOLS/STRATEGY 3

My peers will be useful academic resources in my study. Because we are in the same course, my peers can help me understand various subjects. Working in groups helps us expand our understanding. So I will focus on building great peer relationships. Interacting with them and exchanging ideas and concepts about the MSN program will be required. Engaging other students will help me finish my nursing course.

RESOURCE/STRATEGY 1

My healthcare mentor is a registered nurse. Because my mentor has been a nurse for a long time, he knows exactly what to expect. The nurse practitioner mentor has dealt with many patients. Having a mentor is to help me make career decisions. He gives me excellent knowledge about field experiences that can help me improve my nursing profession.

RESOURCE/STRATEGY 2
The Welcome Home facility will also be used in my research. I’ll spend a lot of time learning about how nurses work in the company Thus, my hospital experiences will help me obtain knowledge and reassess my nursing skills. Understanding the field expectations as an RN practitioner would greatly enhance my nursing career. This facility will allow me to immediately engage in my nursing profession.

3 RESOURCES/STRATEGIES

My MSN program counselor will also be a career resource. My adviser has been working for a long time. During that time, he got valuable patient care experience. He has also gained important skills for job advancement. My main goal in working with my adviser is to learn new skills and knowledge. My objective of becoming a psychiatric nurse will be developed directly with my advisor.

Week 3 | Part 3: Promoting Academic and Professional Integrity

I examined the connections between academic integrity, writing, and professional practices and scholarly ethics. I have also found techniques to sustain academic and professional integrity and ethics throughout my MSN program and nursing career. The results are shown below.

Directions: Create your analysis/writing sample in the spaces below, including Part 1 (Academic and Professional Integrity) and Part 2. (Strategies for Maintaining Integrity of Work).

Conclusion
The selected professional and academic individuals are known to make a successful push to my interest in becoming a successful practicing nurse. For instance, in the academic field, the individuals such as instructors and peers played a sensitive role in guiding me through the practices that were essentially encouraged to become one of the leading performers in the medical classes (Jackson, 2017). In the professional contexts, the selected individuals also played a significant role in becoming a successful nurse by helping adapt to the professional practices and considering the intentions necessary in becoming a successful operator in the hospitals (Siciliano et al., 2018). Therefore, having a strong network of professional and academic teams and individuals would be instrumental when transitioning into the nurse practitioner’s new role.
