  • Release to the NP of the NPs quality performance as measured by health plan auditors

This should be an APA formatted paper, and the above items should be listed as section headings where the student or group will give a brief critique under each section of the contract, using the weekly readings as guidance for the critique. As with any scholarly paper, there should be an introduction and conclusion. There should be evidence of analysis (not simply reporting the facts about the contract) by means of comparing some items (i.e. salary) to national or regional norms. Some of the sections may be combined. If the contract is missing a section, note this in the critique. Include the sample contract in the Appendix, and please remove all identifiers if using a real contract from a colleague or preceptor.***

Reply to this discussion In today’s society, as a community we serve to a diverse group of people.

In today’s society, as a community we serve to a diverse group of people. With society being diverse, today law enforcement face many challenges in the community and handling situaiton’s because of diverse issues that have occured throughout the years. The multicultural differences and diverse system, has led to being more aware or even understanding one’s culture and how even to handle a case knowing how they would react or take the crime itself personally. In America our country serves all diversity, with hopes of the same action to be served equally thoughout society. Understanding multiculturalism from the text, “contemporary multiculturalism and social diversity draws attention to variety along racial, ethinic, subcultural, generational, faith, economic, and gender lines” (Schmalleger, 2017, p. 26). As a society in America in 2017, there’s individuals who look down upon diversity, but majority of the community embraces different lifestyles, and respects there choice in life, and behavior.

Overall with the diverse society, this has a great impact on the justice system. According to the text, “Whether it is the confusion that arises from a police officer’s commands to a non-English-speaking suspect the need for interpreters int he courtroom, a deep-seated distrust of the police in some minority communities, a lack of willingness among some immigrants to report crime” (Schmalleger, 2017, p. 26). All these issues play apart with the criminal justice system and how it will affect the system either negatively or in a positive manner. As the world has changed to individuals being more vocal about their opinions and culture, the heart of police officers or anyone who works in the criminal justice system is to make sure that citizens comply with the law ” (Murphy, 2012). The criminal justice system respects the citizens no matter what their culture is, but the diverse community also respects what the criminal justice system is asking from them. The overall goal for those serving in the criminal justice system is to protect all citizens from harms way, but in some cases some individuals like to provide their voice and opinion which can correlate with their culture or diverse situation.

Judeo-Christianity plays a role in our society because they stick to the truth, what is right not necessarily what is equal. The impact Judeo-Christianity have on society goes against our world that has become a world of everyone deserves equality, and the right to have this which is not how they function. Society has come to a place where “as soon as free will becomes the foundation of moral action and virtue is lacated not in natural, “unequal gifts,” but in the use to which they are put, they it goes without saying that all men are equal merit” (Hill, 2017, p. 51). The implemention on the criminal justice system from Judeo-Christianity is they go based on the laws, and they go with what is right and respect what God has asked from His truth. Our society has been built up on “One Nation under God” which has impacted in the decisions made with law enforcement and by court of law. As a reminder God has reminded us in the Psalms that celebrate the justice of God (Coulton, 2012). The foundation of the criminal justice has been greatly impacted by Judea Christianity.

crictal thinking

Reflection Journal – Six Stages of Critical Thinking

Consider your readings for the week on the six stages of critical thinking. At the beginning of this class, where do you think you are starting? According to the readings, what makes you fit within the criteria of that kind of thinker? What are some of the benefits and downfalls of that kind of thought?

Your work should be at least 500 words, but mostly draw from your own personal experience. This should be written in first person and give examples of the kinds of ways you are currently thinking. Be sure if you are using information from the readings that you properly cite your readings in this, and in all assignments.

Political Science APA cited

1.Explore the French system of government. How does the French system figure into this discussion? Does France have a presidential system like the United States, or does it have a parliamentary system like the UK? If the systems are not the same, how do they differ?

2. Select a parliamentary election. Tell us the following:

a. What country and year did it take place?

b. Who were the major candidates and what parties did they represent? Who won and by how


c. What, according to your research, were the most important issues, scandals, or things to

happen during the election?

d. How was this, in your opinion, similar or dissimilar to an election in the U.S.?

The U.S. Supreme Court

3.The Supreme Court Justices are appointed by the president and approved by the Senate. Now that we understand how the justices are elected, and the perks and downfalls to their undemocratic election, do you find it appropriate for the Supreme Court to interpret the U.S. Constitution? They did not always have this ability, so do you think it is in the best interest of the people? Why or why not?

4. As we know, Supreme Court Justices serve terms until death (or, of course, they can choose to retire).

What are the pros and cons of such a setup? Are there alternative solutions that you would propose (or that others have)?

Discussion 07: Promoting Patient Involvement

Somewhat opposite of patient involvement is patient noncompliance, someone who does not take his/her prescribed medications, has missed numerous clinic appointments, does not follow the physician’s instructions in regards to diet, exercise and lifestyle. Meet Mr. Wontdothat.

Imagine that you have been tasked with caring for him (as a healthcare giver or family member) who is now hospitalized due to not following his/her plan of care. Applying the concepts presented in week six PowerPoint, “The Grief of Change.” In addition, find one reliable source (can be NAU library or other source but must be referenced) to identify barriers to Mr. Wontdothat’s care and how you might go about improving the situation for the patient.

In addition, ask one question about this topic for others to answer and/or clarify. When responding to others, add at least one concept they did not mention.

Can you provide the answer to Symbolism in the Short Story?

Chapter 6 explores the role of symbols in conveying literary themes. Themes are abundant in literary works (though they are at some times more obvious than at others). Select one short story from the reading assignments (from either Week One or Week Two) to examine more closely in relation to symbolism. Consider the story’s overall theme(s) and use of images as well as how these two relate to one another. You may choose to explore one single recurring symbol, or you may discuss multiple symbols and how they relate to one another. 

At the beginning of your post, identify (a) the literary work that you will analyze and (b) the theme(s) that is/are most relevant to the symbolism you will explore.

Again, this has to be 200-300 words and formatted in APA. If you need any information from the textbook or for me to attach a story please let me know.
