RE: Family Nurse Practitioner

Dear Mr. Pierre,

I read with interest your posting for a Family Nurse Practitioner. I believe I possess the necessary skills and
experience you are seeking and would make a valuable addition to your company.

As my resume indicates, I possess more than 15 years of progressive experience in the nursing field.

 

My professional history includes positions such as continuous care nurse at catholic hospice as well as case
manager at the Florida Department of Health.
Most recently, my responsibilities as case manager at The Department of health match the
qualification’s you are seeking.  As a Nurse Practitioner, my responsibilities included performing initial
patient screening and serve as the resource patient needs for ongoing care information.  My supervisor
also relied on my ability to work within a team and take direction.

Write an investigative paper that applies group-related communication theories to a selected group.

Write an investigative paper that applies group-related communication theories to a selected group.

There are many ways to improve interpersonal effectiveness, and the benefits of doing so are profound. Many studies point to interpersonal effectiveness as the leading predictor of future success. Derailment studies (Lombardo & McCauley, 1988) found lack of interpersonal communication skills to be a key factor in the likelihood of a manager to derail, or be removed from his or her job.

 

Understanding personal work group communication processes will be extremely important throughout your career. This assessment provides a framework for you to analyze that in the context of a specific situation you are familiar with. As you take on additional responsibility in your career (particularly in managerial roles), you might be faced with situations where personal work group communications doesn’t seem to be working, or where you perceive it is particularly critical that it work optimally. In those future situations, you can reference this framework and analysis, and apply it to help achieve work group and organization effectiveness and success.

Complete the following:

  • Choose a group in which you are currently involved or have been involved in the past. A group or team associated with a current employer often works the best, but you may also use group experiences from previous employers or community activities. If possible, choose a group that may be experiencing communication difficulties.
  • Prepare an investigative paper that applies group-related communication theories to your selected group. Include the following in your paper:
    • Describe the characteristics of the group and analyze the impact on communication using all of the criteria below:
      • Describe whether the team is ongoing (permanent) or ad hoc (temporary).
      • Is the group a short-term group that will only exist for 1–12 months or is the group a long-standing group that has or will exist for more than one year?
      • Is the group formal or informal? For example, is the group an official (that is, formal) department or committee at a company or is the group an informal collection of people such as a book club.
      • Is the group self-managing or does the group have a clear consistent leader?
      • Is the group best described as a primary work team or a project team? A primary work team generally takes on a variety of tasks (for example, a Human Resources Department or a Maintenance Department). Project teams typically engage in a narrow set of activities such as organizing a specific event or a taking on a single project.
    • Using the 2007 Benne and Sheats article, “Functional Roles of Group Members,” linked in the Resources under the Required Resources heading, analyze the formal roles and communication roles of group members and the impact on communication within the group:
      • Group members’ task roles.
      • Group members’ maintenance roles.
      • Group members’ individual roles.
    • Using Bruce Tuckman’s (1965) team stages model or Backlund’s 2001 article, “Team Effectiveness,” linked in the Resources under the Required Resources heading, describe the group stages experienced by the group and changes in communication throughout those stages.
    • Analyze the group norms and the impact on organizational communication. Norms are the formal and informal rules groups develop. Many norms are never written down and many are not discussed openly but are still learned by group members.
    • Describe positive and negative participation behaviors and their impact on communication.
    • Describe the group’s use of technology for communication, such as e-mail, texting, or the Internet, and assess the effectiveness of the group’s use of technology for communication.

A differentiation strategy is to distinguish your products from the competition so that consumers are willing to pay a premium for them.

About essay (A number of you asked questions about the first assignment. So, I thought I’d send an email to the entire class. During the lecture on Thursday, we went over the two strategies that tend to win in the marketplace and give firms a competitive advantage. These are (a) low cost and (b) differentiation. The low cost strategy is to price products at a lower price point than the competition. A differentiation strategy is to distinguish your products from the competition so that consumers are willing to pay a premium for them.
The task for the EasyJet assignment is to determine EasyJet’s strategy and to specifically describe how they achieved it. You should go over the case multiple times and attempt to determine what, if anything, they do to generate a competitive advantage over the competition. In the write up you would categorize and describe the specific actions they took to achieve a competitive advantage.)

Choosing an appropriate measurement tool requires consideration of a number of different issues including reliability, validity, appropriateness for use with a specific group or culture, availability, and potential cost.

The center point of research studies is the body of data collected to answer the research question. These data must be measured, which is the act of taking an abstract concept (e.g., depression, anger, etc.), sorting them out and quantifying them in some cohesive way in order to construct meaning—but how can you measure something that is not easily quantifiable?
Choosing an appropriate measurement tool requires consideration of a number of different issues including reliability, validity, appropriateness for use with a specific group or culture, availability, and potential cost. Sometimes, social workers will attempt to create their own set of questions to tap into or measure a concept. This may appear to be an easy thing to do; however, writing questions to measure a phenomenon is more challenging than it would seem. For example, how do we know it measures what we want it to measure?  In the first discussion this week, you will have the opportunity to create your own questions to measure a phenomenon of your interest. In the second discussion, you will compare the measure you created with an existing instrument that measures the same phenomenon.
To prepare: Choose one phenomenon or issue that a client may be dealing with (for example, depression, anxiety, or family conflict). Consider how you would evaluate the client’s progress in this area. Create questions with response options that would capture this phenomenon or client issue.

Research your selected program in the Walden Library or other reputable academic sources to locate peer-reviewed empirical literature on its effectiveness.

Final Project: Part II
In Week 6, you described the intervention program you chose for your Final Project. This week, you research relevant empirical literature examining the effectiveness of your selected program and create a brief annotated bibliography of peer-reviewed articles you plan to include in your paper.
For your selected program:
1. Research your selected program in the Walden Library or other reputable academic sources to locate peer-reviewed empirical literature on its effectiveness.
2. Provide an annotated bibliography for at least 3 peer-reviewed empirical articles that you plan to use in your Final Project that have been published in scholarly journals describing/evaluating/critiquing your chosen intervention program. Please use the Walden Writing Center resource in this week’s Learning Resources to familiarize yourself with the format and requirements for an annotated bibliography.
Please Note: Many of the websites that discuss the specific intervention programs have citations of research that determine the program’s effectiveness. This is a good place to start for your literature review.
Reminder part 2 of project is based on Part 1 which has been posted below.
Indicated Intervention Program
Selective or indicate intervention program encompasses a secondary strategy that vitally targets high-risk children and entails training by a teacher. The teacher training gets aligned towards transforming the plan of classroom management. This intervention approach gets coupled with the implementation of added small-group instruction. Studies affirm that the teacher preparations linked to minimal externalizing concerns in high risk arisen.
 
Hence, concerns have ensued regarding the pullout sessions’ efficacy. The pull-out interventions are of significance in for the competence development in children since the process of obtaining social skills becomes sustained by interacting with the children with excellent development skills (CPPRG, 1999). However, training small numbers of high-risk individuals might delay the progress, as well as reinforce the present negative behaviors.
Similarly, the intervention of at high-risk persons originates from a hybrid model of prevention that integrates the provision of combined intervention simultaneously. This program comprises of teacher training, small group training, as well as parent training. In most scenarios, aggressive, as well as non-compliant children disrupt the activities of a classroom daily. Hence, their behaviors become reinforced unwittingly by teachers via the s=discipline strategies that are ineffective. In conjunction with the low levels of misbehavior in high-risk individuals, teachers make use of affirmative procedures of discipline like timeout, misbehaviors’ logical consequences, as well as rule set. The selective intervention program is consistent with the Fast Track program developers and plays a vital role in fostering positive results for all children. The teacher consultations facilitate the classroom curriculum implementation coupled with effective intervention results on the emotion and social competencies’ development in children (Shure, 1997). The consultations facilitate the development of strategies of coaching used by teachers for all children despite their risk status.
