Coming home to nothing; no help, no support, no job, and no one to talk to about their personal experiences while being deployed. This type lifestyle is something veterans face on a day to day basis. Transitioning back into society can be difficult, but we as Americans should help them make this extensive change. The introduction of the book For Love of Country, written by Howard Schultz and Rajiv Chandrasekaran inspired me to look more into how the American society helps those who sacrifice their lives so our lives can be free. The introduction also helped with the theme of veterans and one topic question. What are the common repercussions of veterans leaving the army and what can American society do to help them?

Many people are concerned about the U.S. military because of how many risks come with joining it. However, the U.S. military also explains the benefits that one could receive. Joining the military is a decision that should not be taken lightly. One must understand all aspects of the military. In order for a voter to be fully informed about joining the US military, one must consider both the risks, like mental illnesses and commitment and benefits, like education, and experience.
Ineffective discharge teaching often leads to unnecessary admissions to the hospital resulting in negative patient outcomes and decreased patient satisfaction. This negatively impacts the well-being of the patient and creates a financial burden on institutions. As a result, this universal practice issue requires a call to action on the part of the nursing profession. Nurses can proactively assist in assuring incidents of readmission do not occur. Nurses as educators play a critical role in the successful transition of patients from hospital to home. The overall goal of discharge education is to ensure there is an exchange of critical information between the patient and nurse in which plans of care are understood and followed. The research
It is obvious from the opening chapter that this novel will center on the war and the effects it has on a young group of soldiers, none of them more than twenty years of age. They are all friends and former classmates of Paul Baumer, the narrator and protagonist of the book; they have enlisted in the German infantry because their teacher, Kantorek, had painted for them a glorious picture of fighting and saving the homeland from destruction during World War I. In this first chapter, Baumer and his friends are away from the front lines, relaxing a bit after two weeks of fierce fighting. As each of the young men is introduced, it is apparent that they are tired, hungry, angry, and disillusioned over the war.

However, the author elaborately narrates the anguish of women about their appropriate roles in the post-war period via religious and societal approaches. Although the religion embraces the mother’s abandonment of family, the author proposes a decent woman by borrowing the perspectives of the two boys and also by proposing the adverse character, Granny, who is submissive and cares her family.
Amy, I agree that there is a natural tendency to rush through a patient’s discharge instructions because there is always a rush to discharge this patient so the next one can be admitted. It is important to use your communication skills to build a relationship with your patient in order to structure and tailor your teaching moments in an environment that aligns with the personal characteristics and behaviors of your patient (Bastable, 2014, p. 79). I seize the opportunity during a patient’s stay and care to have these teaching moments, so that the final discharge education is basically a review. Discharge teaching in this manner prevents the patient from be bombarded with a sleuth of information that may be hard to understand in one sitting.
