The purpose of this assignment is to assess the Mission Statements of two different facilities. The two facilities are:
Sentara Martha Jefferson Hospital in Charlottesville, VA
Bon Secours Southside Medical Center in Petersburg, VA
Discuss the following:
Describe the population, within the area of the state, that is served by each facility to include the SES, ethnic and racial percentages, the any other demographics that describe the population. You can find this information a various state and federal websites e.g. US Census.
Contrast and Compare the Mission Statements of each facility (NOTE: contrast is how the two mission statements are different and compare is how they are alike!). In other words, considering the purpose of the Mission Statement, what makes them different and why.
Review the website and describe and discuss at least two very specific examples of information on that website that demonstrates:
Commitment to the Mission Statement. In other words, what do they say and do that reflects their mission Statement?
Commitment to the population that they serve. In other words, what do they say and do that supports their specific community?

As you finish this course, your philosophy of nursing has probably changed. As a final review, polish your philosophy of nursing based on your newly acquired knowledge. Also, write a summary reflection answering the following questions based on the readings and discussions throughout the course: As an art and a science, how has your personal nursing philosophy unfolded? Have there been ideas that have challenged your personal values or assumptions? Have there been ideas that have caused you personal conflict and may lead to deconstructing those dispositions in a critical manner? What actions have you taken that illustrate your personal nursing philosophy? Describe your own definition of the concepts involving the meta-paradigm of nursing. Has your first written philosophy of nursing changed? In what ways? Your paper that includes both your philosophy and reflection together should be 2–3 pages in length, in APA format, typed in Times New Roman with 12-point font, and double-spaced with 1″ margins. If outside sources are used, they must be cited appropriately.

Instructions: In solving the Learning Exercise, you must select a formal problem-solving or decision-making model and apply each step of the model to decide the best way to address the problem. List Learning Exercise 13.3 “Authority-Power Gap in the Student Role” you are solving at the start of your analysis and provide a summary of the case (listed below). Be sure to apply an appropriate problem-solving/decision-making model (Traditional Problem-Solving Process, Managerial Decision-Making Model, The Nursing Process, or the Integrated Ethical Problem-Solving Model) in determining what you should do. Justify your decision with supporting evidence. Writing Expectations—3 to 4 pages, double-spaced, in length, not counting title page and references. APA format required (title page, citations in body of paper, and reference list). The steps of the problem-solving or decision-making model chosen should be used as subheadings for the paper. Each analysis should include a brief introduction and conclusion. MAKE SURE TO PUT SUBHEADINGS (which should be the steps of whatever problem-solving or decision-making model chosen). Scenario (Topic): You are a senior nursing student completing your final leadership practicum. Your assignment today is to assume leadership of a small team composed of the registered nurse (RN), one licensed vocational nurse/licensed practical nurse, and one certified nursing assistant (CNA). The RN preceptor has agreed to let you take on this leadership role in her place, although she will shadow your efforts and provide support throughout the day. Almost immediately after the handoff report, a patient puts on the call light and tells you that she needs to have her sheets changed as she was incontinent in the bed. Because you are just beginning your 8:00 AM med pass and are already behind, you ask the CNA if she has time to do this task. She immediately responds, “I’m busy and you’re the student. Do it yourself! It would be a good learning experience for you.” When you try to explain your leadership role for the day, she walks away, saying that she does not have time anyway. A few minutes after that, a physician enters the unit. He wants to talk to the nurse about his patient. When you inform him that you are the student nurse caring for his patient that day, he responds, “No—I want to talk to the real nurse.” You feel frustrated with this emerging authority–power gap and seek out the RN to formulate a plan to make this gap smaller. ASSIGNMENT: Identify at least four strategies you might use to reduce the size of this authority–power gap. Would you involve the RN in your plan? Do you anticipate having similar authority–power gaps in the new graduate role?
This week covers probability and non-probability sampling. Discuss in detail the characteristics of probability and nonprobability sampling.

Please note that the title and reference pages should not be included in the total page count of your paper. Identify one person from the illness group you chose in Week 1 to interview. The person should not be a patient at the facility in which you work. You can use friends, family members, or coworkers. Do not use the person’s name in the paper, only initials. Administer the questionnaire you created in Week 1 to that person and address the following: Compile the data and analyze the responses to better illustrate where this person, his or her family, and friends are in relation to accepting the diagnosis in relation to the standard health or illness definitions. The analysis should also include coping skills, treatment, and support aspects of the illness. Explain how this information will direct care plan development for the chosen illness group. Include a copy of the interview you created with the responses from the person interviewed in an Appendix. Support your responses with examples and information from library resources, textbook and lectures. On a separate references page, cite all sources using APA format.
Ethical dilemmas are those where there is neither an easy answer nor a decision that is absolutely the right one.
Healthcare professionals must deal with these challenges based on their training and knowledge of ethical principles and decision making.

• Physician-assisted death
• Artificial intelligence and clinical decision making
• Organ transplantation and artificial organs
Note: If you would like to choose a dilemma other than one on the list, please consult with your instructor and obtain permission.
• Describe the issue and why and how it poses an ethical dilemma for healthcare providers and healthcare organizations?
• What ethical principle(s) would be applicable to the dilemma?
• Describe the ethical decision-making steps used to come to an ethical decision? With whom would a healthcare professional consult in coming to a decision?
• How are your personal values challenged? What would be a personal bias or conflict of interest in resolving this dilemma?
