The Nursing Time Line and the Pyramid of foundation of professional nursing give us a wide knowledge of the history and foundation of current nursing. From the Lay nursing which was practiced in early 250 BC to the present nursing practice it has been went through various stages. Prior to 1800 nursing was only a religious act, from that infancy it grown to become modern nursing with hard work and continuous dedication of Florence Nightingale and Crimean War. The associate degree and 4 year nursing program revolutionized by Mildred Montage. In the years between 1957 and 1994 there were 900 community college nursing programs. Thus from olden era to the millennium era nursing evolved tremendously. The interactive timeline provided a lot of trends in nursing practice. Out of that I would like to mention about educational development, New inventions, and technological improvements. * There were enormous change in nursing education from uneducated to the highest level of education, like evidence based nursing and PHD and continuing education * There were a lot of inventions happened through all these years and we are fortunate to have these opportunity. * Like IT feild, the technology of nursing care has developed from nothing to the easiest mothod of care. In my perspective of nursing practice these all trends infuenced a lot. When I joined in nursing in 1986 as a student such technology was in primary stage and the inventions were not improved this level. As I worked I learned somany new things, and learning process is still continuing. From the basic nursing the trend is going forward to get more and more education and knowledge.

...Professional Dynamics Grand Canyon University NRS-430V September 08, 2012 Professional Dynamics Associate trained nurses came about out of necessity due to a nursing shortage after the end of World War II. Nurses were leaving the profession causing a dramatic shortage. In order to alleviate this problem, a proposal to initiate a two year nursing program was proposed by Milford Montag in 1952. The intent of the ADN was to fill the nursing shortage with a nurse who was technically competent to perform tasks (Hood & Leddy 2010). There are three routes to becoming a registered nurse: a 3-year diploma program typically administered in hospitals; a 3-year associate degree usually offered at community colleges; and the 4-year baccalaureate degree offered at senior colleges and universities. Graduates of all three programs sit for the same NCLEX-RN© licensing examination. The associated degree has become a popular choice for many students because an ADN is less expensive than a university and can be obtained without traveling far from home. Although all three types of nurses are taking the same NCLEX-RN exam, it’s a measure of the minimum indicator of competency. Studies have shown that BSN nurses are shown to have stronger critical thinking and leadership skills. Hospitals are beginning to phase out associate degree nurses in favor of BSN-prepared nurses. Studies have shown that BSN nurses also possess stronger communication and problem solving skills (Johnson......

However, the implied volatility surface also changes dynamically over time in a way that is not taken into account by current modelling approaches, giving rise to ‘Vega’ risk in option portfolios. Using time series of option prices on the SP500 and FTSE indices, we study the deformation of this surface and show that it may be represented as a randomly fluctuating surface driven by a small number of orthogonal random factors. We identify and interpret the shape of each of these factors, study their dynamics and their correlation with the underlying index. Our approach is based on a Karhunen–Lo` ve e decomposition of the daily variations of implied volatilities obtained from market data. A simple factor......

A 3 years Diploma program learned in hospitals. A three year ADN achieving from a community college and four year BSN from a college or university. Graduates of all these program must pass the NCLEX – RN licensing from one of the State Board of Nursing in order to work as a Registered Nurse in a hospital setting or Community Health centers or any other organizations. The main differences between all these nursing programs is the years to study in the school. ADN or Diploma Nursing programs mainly based on clinical skills and more task oriented. BSN program includes all of the course materials and practical in ADN or Diploma program. Which focus primarily the physical and social sciences, nursing research and management, public and community health. This will improve or enhances the nurses professional development, better understanding of the person, health, nursing and environment which are the main concepts in nursing.

...In order to fully understand the personal development and reflective reasoning in relation to your development in the Nursing field, one will have to define these two terminologies. Personal development means to include activities that improve awareness, can develop potential that will ultimately enhance the quality of life. Medical colleges advocate personal development plans as a basis for continuing professional development. Whereas, reflective reasoning is where a nurse can apply learning and insights of others into their own work. In nursing courses students learn through lecture and discussion, which is the primary method for teaching theoretical principles, but when you add a more complete understanding of the relationship between theory and practice one may become a more competent nurse. Awareness of issues and analysis of knowledge and feelings are some stages that are involved in reflection but then identification and integration of new learning is needed as well. By consciously engaging in their own and others reflection it is believed that the level of professional interaction will improve. Motivation, one issue bound to crop up in ones work life, as well as leadership and of course managing conflict these are some issues when speaking of personal development. The ability to reflect upon us is a valuable part of human life, insisted Taylor (2000). Reflection and reflective practice are claimed to enhance professional development, link theory and practice,......

.... Professional Dynamics: Competency differences between Associate Degree Nurses and Baccalaureate degree Nurses Antoinette Njombua Grand Canyon University: NRS 430V-0103 September 5, 2015 Competency differences between Associate Degree Nurses and Baccalaureate degree Nurses. To become a practicing nurse, graduates must first acquire the knowledge and educational blue print necessary to participate in and pass the NCLEX-RN exam. There are various educational pathways and schools for nurses to complete these requirements. There are vocational Programs, the Associate degree program, and the Baccalaureate programs. Though all are eligible to take the same NCLEX-RN exam to attain licensure for practice as registered nurses, they all practice at different levels of competencies and scopes. Although the cognitive abilities between the associate degree and the baccalaureate degree nurses are similar, the difference between these two practicing nurses is mostly related to the level of preparedness and their role functioning standards. The achievement of BSN by practicing nurses serves to enhance nursing care particularly on individuals, families and community like the ADN, but also extends their expertise to community health, leadership, research and evidence based practice. Although the differences in the abilities may not be evident in the beginning of their nursing practice, it becomes pronounced as these nurses gain experience in clinical areas. On......

...PROFESSIONAL DYNAMICS Re:Topic 2: Discussion Question 1 How does knowledge of the foundations and history of nursing provide a context in which to understand current practice? Identify at least three trends in nursing practice from the "Nursing Timeline of Historical Events" media piece. How have these trends influenced your perspective of nursing practice? My understanding of the nursing history used to be limited to Florence Nightingale time during the Crimean war. However, after watching the slides and read other resources, I realised that nursing history go way back before Florence Nightingale. In order to understand nursing, the history must not be waved aside as a thing of the past.Nursing over many decades has made a lot of great progress. Dorothea Lynde Dix made a landmark by initiating first nursing registration.Effort of Elizabeth Mahoney for coloured nurses despite racial discrimination made positive change among coloured nurses.Midred Montag's idea about 2 year associate nursing degree gave birth to many nursing schools. All these people and many others have made a tremedous progress in nursing,from bedside nursing to nursing research. The foundation of nursing today is laid on the efforts of brave men and women who practiced and gave their best to the profession. Nursing has risen from a profession that is not respected to a highly competitive profession. Despite many changes and trends in nursing, nursing has remained a profession whose primary......

...nurse would treat a CHF patient. A specific patient case I reviewed, was readmitted to a hospital again within thirty days with a diagnosis of congestive heart failure. The ADN trained nurse could administer drugs, perform daily weights, ensure that the patient followed a cardiac diet, but was strictly task oriented (The Future of the Associate Degree in Nursing Program, 2013). The BSN trained nurse, would base the care provided using a more integrated system (Why the Push for BSN Nurses?, 2012). The focus of the BSN trained nurse would encompass more teaching, measuring compliance of instructions that were given, and ensure core measures would be met prior to discharge. The follow up care would include determining if the patient had access to meds, home health, understood the need to maintain dietary restrictions, and instruct the patient on keeping a daily weight log to ensure that weight trends would be monitored and recorded. ADN AND BSN DIFFERENCES 3 The college system today has defined an ADN nurse as technical and a BSN nurse as a professional nurse (The Future of the Associate Degree in Nursing Program, 2013). A nurse with an ADN degree, although important, can look at the degree as a stepping stone to advancing their career to attain the BSN. The ANA has been pushing for nurses to obtain their baccalaureate degree through many recent meetings (Trossman, November 2008). BSN trained nurses can work more specifically in areas with their......

...Running head: THE CONTRIBUTION OF HIGHER EDUCATION IN NURSING 1 The Contribution of Higher Education In Nursing Grand Canyon University: NRS- 430 V Professional Dynamics THE CONTRIBUTION OF HIGHER EDUCATION IN NURSING 2 Nursing in today’s day and age is a profession that is both rewarding and demanding. With increased pressure on hospitals to provide clinically sound medical care while functioning as a business, nurses are at the forefront of providing patient safety in a business environment. America depends on both two and four year institutions of higher education to prepare nurses, who will be working side by side in the healthcare environment. As a result of nursing job growth and projected retirement rates, it is estimated that America will need one million additional Registered Nurses by 2018 (Fulcher, Mullin, 2011). With strong evidence that a Baccalaureate degree in nursing improves patient outcomes, the IOM recommends 80% of nurses have a BSN by the year 2020. Evidence clearly suggests a relationship between a baccalaureate education and improved patient outcomes (Sarver, Cichra & Cline, 2015). One difference that may contribute to competency differences between ADN and BSN programs is number of credit hours obtained while in school. BSN programs require 120 credit hours whereas ADN programs require 71.5 (Fulcher, Mullin, 2011). Thus, the amount of hours spent learning is greatly reduced in an ADN program. One can infer that more......

...alliances may have more complex, dual structures. The significance attached to corporate identity is another factor influencing brand architecture. Firms such as Sony and Apple that focus on developing a strong corporate identity in international markets are, for example, more likely to focus and emphasize corporate level brands. In Japan, considerable importance is attached to trust in a company and its reliability. Consequently, corporate rather than product level branding is emphasized. However, companies of other national origins such as Siemens, GE, Phillips, Exxon, also emphasize corporate identity. As a result, the underlying rationale and driving force for corporate-level branding merits further investigation. Examining the dynamics of international brand architecture Since a firm’s architecture is continually evolving, it is important to trace this pattern over time and to identify triggers to changes. This aids in understanding the role and significance of branding in the firm’s international strategy and provides insights into the way the firm has attempted to maximize the value of its brand assets at different stages of the international market expansion. In this context, as an increasing number of firms are endorsing local product brands with corporate level brands to develop international visibility, an important issue is to examine whether and how far this strategy adds value. This can be examined from multiple standpoints. It can be examined in......
