It is a mid July summer day and as I clumsily shuffle down an uneven sidewalk, I can feel the heat from the cement radiate against my flesh and the feel of my sweaty palm on my caregiver’s forearm as she guides me through Old Town, a small historical landmark in Albuquerque, New Mexico. We head to a shop to get some ice cream to help cool us down. As we enter the shop I can smell the sweetness that fills the shop and I gladly welcome the cool air conditioner blowing on my face. I am excited to try the ice cream of this quaint little store, but as I look up to view the menu on the wall, I struggle to see what flavors they have. As I peer through a small tunnel in the middle of my vision, the rest of my vision so blurry I cannot make out any
Family Nurse Practitioner Family Nurse Practitioner Healthcare in the United States in the 1950’s and 1960’s experienced an upheaval with the expanded availability of the Medicare and Medicaid programs and the increased specialization of medicine. The shortage in providing health care coverage to low-income women, children, the elderly, and people with disabilities gave clinically experienced nurses the opportunity to fill the primary care void. This was accomplished with the introduction of the first Nurse Practitioner program. The NP program was co-created in 1965 by a nurse educator, Loretta Ford, EdD, RN, PNP, and a physician, Henry Silver, MD, at the University of Colorado as a non-degree

Functional Analysis Rationale For the indirect assessment project, The Board Certified Behavior Analyst (BCBA) and Registered Behavior Technician (RBT) said that the two most concerning problem behaviors that occur at the clinic were elopement and verbal refusal. After conducting the indirect assessment, the data was inconclusive and in my presentation, I suggested doing a full functional analysis to determine the function of the behaviors. Out of the two behaviors, I have chosen verbal refusal for the functional analysis project because it occurs at a higher rate than elopement.

Upon completion of the Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) program at Indiana State University I hope to continue to work in or near my hometown, which is in a rural area. I truly enjoy serving my community as a nurse and believe it will be even more rewarding to do so as a FNP.

While working in primary care, FNPs gain the opportunity to care for numerous diseases and conditions. Furthermore, I enjoy the privilege of caring for patients across the lifespan on a daily basis. I do not plan to initially become a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP); however, I may pursue the degree in the future. I would like to start by taking

Paraprofessional are employed by the school systems to assist students in their education. One of the ways the paraprofessional is used is to administer RTI information to students who are at-risk for reading disabilities (O’Keeffe, Slocum & Magnusson, 2011).

In my current role as a Certified Nursing Assistant Instructor (CNA), clinical learning with a mentor in a long-term care setting is essential in preparing students for their role as a CNA. One of the biggest challenges with these learning experiences is the random assignment of students to a CNA mentor. Some students have excellent mentors who take the time to explain things to them and walk the students through doing the cares themselves. In contrast to students, who have a mentor that does not interact or explain cares to them. During post-clinical conference, there is a noticeable difference in the attitudes of students who had a good mentor compared to those who did not. This brings forth the question of which student was able to learn
