  • Submissive Characters In Children's Literature: Influence Upon Self-Perception In Female Children

    6 pages in length. Children's literature is replete with visual imagery of worlds that exist beyond reality's realm; to equip a child with a story that takes her outside her established precepts is to fortify that young mind with additional learning tools for life. However, not every lesson learned within the pages of children's literature is of a positive nature, inasmuch as some messages drive home antiquated gender identity roles that impose significantly distorted perceptions upon naïve and vulnerable readers. When cast as submissive characters by virtue of their gender, children are taught that such famous "people" as Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty represent how women are expected to be in the real world; without benefit of truly understanding the fantasy component of children's literature, they take with them these skewed perceptions and unknowingly incorporate them into their own psychological development.

    6 pages in length. Ever since man began telling tales, incredible accounts of freakish, monster-like animals have captivated and horrified entire communities. The basis for these extraordinary fabrications was the inability of early writers to distinguish between truth and fantasy. As the stories were passed down through generations, they eventually became accepted as the legends we know today. The younger years of one of mythological literature's most beloved writers – J.R.R. Tolkien – served to greatly impact this imaginative style; however, the author did not fully grasp his unique talent until the 1930s when he worked and reworked The Hobbit and ultimately came up with new ideas of mythological literature in the essay "On Fairy Stories." By this time Tolkien had come to realize that fantasy stories were plainly not primarily concerned with possibility, but with desirability. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Six Stories and Lower and Upper Classes

    A 5 page essay that addresses six works by six authors: Orwell, Dostoevsky, Goldsmith, Goldstone, Huxley and Jackson. The writer argues that literature is, among other things, a reflection of an author's perception of society, its values and concepts of knowledge and truth.

This examination of six works illustrates this principle, as each tale focuses on a different aspect of class structure, informing the reader, but, more importantly, causing the reader to reflect on the justice of taken for granted societal norms.

  • A look at C.K. Barrett's The New Testament Background

    A 5 page book review of C.K. Barrett's The New Testament Background: Selected Documents (1956). For the theology student, the study of New Testament scriptures also involves consideration of the wealth of collected wisdom and experience that is recorded in ancient literature, as these works describe the "history and thought of the world in which the Church was born" (Barrett xvii). Theology students hear constant references to this compendium of knowledge from their professors without usually encountering these works first hand, as most students never read these works themselves. Considering these facts, C.K. Barrett concluded that theology students need a guide to ancient world literature that aids them in regards to New Testament studies. Consequently, Barrett compiled such a text, which cites a variety of ancient documents that--collectively--offer a comprehensive picture for the modern student of the ancient world.

The resulting information is then used to formulate an instrument for evaluating quality, both quantitatively and qualitatively, by employing a sample group made up of medical and healthcare providers as well as the patients they serve. Bibliography lists 12 sources.

  • Canada's New Influx of Immigrants and Depression

    A 10 page research paper that addresses this topic. Canada is currently experiencing a huge influx of new immigrants.

The framework for this literature review addresses this question specifically in regards to the topic of mental heath and incidence of depression among new immigrants to Canada. As immigration necessarily implies a period of transition, in which cultural and psychological adjustment is required, it seems logical that depression could be a serious problem among new immigrant groups. The following literature review explores what research has to say on this hypothesis and also what studies reveal about the factors that affect depression among new immigrants, as well as the prevalence of depression.

With the 1972 graduation of the nation's first female FBI agents came an altogether different perspective of women on the police force; however, House (1993) points out that even though this precedence-setting event helped to increase the number of policewomen from just over three thousand to approximately twenty-eight hundred between 1971 and 1990, it has done little to improve promotions or decrease discrimination worldwide.

    Chronic wound care is considerably more difficult to manage than it seems; a single ulcer or open sore can have a tremendous impact upon an individual's personal and professional life to the point of disrupting it entirely. From high health care costs to job loss to compromised quality of life, what may otherwise seem to laypeople as an innocuous medical issue is in truth quite impacting upon the patient's entire life, not the least of which includes impaired mobility, chronic pain and social isolation (Ly & Poole-Warren (2008). Utilizing the ever-growing technological options for this particular problem has rendered some benefit to accelerated wound care, however, the speed with which such methods as electrical fields like POSiFECT and Dermapulse depends upon the severity of the wound. the delayed and sometimes ineffective nature of conventional wound treatment has rendered the need for more advanced options that while not perfect are showing great promise as a viable and better alternative.

  • Controversial Literature: Huck Finn

    5 pages in length. Controversial may well be the first word used to describe Mark Twain's The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn long before any summary is offered.

To look at either the character or story of Huck Finn as anything but a social mirror is to read more into Twain's meaning, however, public construal continues to be divided as to the author's true intent.

  • How Exercise Delays Onset Of Dementia In Alzheimer's Patients: Literature Review

    20 pages in length. The natural course of aging takes its toll on both the body and mind; as much significant progress medical technology has made, there are still some aspects of human existence it cannot stop or reverse. Multimodal exercise has long been a highly recommended component of the geriatric health protocol as a method by which to tone muscles, strengthen bones stronger and keep all the bodily systems in good function. Why is it, therefore, that exercise is only just recently being associated with the delay onset of dementia when it has such dramatically positive impact upon the rest of the physiological makeup? Second only to the skin, the human brain is the largest organ in the body that responds to stimuli no differently than others, however, it is also vastly complex when compared to the liver or heart; because medical science still has a very long way to go before the mind's holistic function and capacity is known, new realizations of the mind/body connection will continue to be made, not the least of which includes the growing association between physical activity and staving off dementia. Bibliography lists 19 sources.

  • Four-Blocks Literacy Framework: Literature Review

    15 pages in length. Reaching and teaching all students in today's troubled academic climate - no matter their (in)capacity to learn - has presented quite a challenge for educators who are often faced with the responsibility of instructing many different types of students within a single classroom. Various methods have been introduced as a means by which to address a system whereby at-risk students fall through the cracks because of not being taught in a way they understand, however, not all have demonstrated a true ability to overcome the struggle. Drs. Dorothy Hall and Patricia Cunningham recognize how all children do not learn alike and therefore require "substantial instruction to support the learning personalities of all students" (Hall et al, 2001), which is why they developed the Four-Blocks Literacy Model. As a "multilevel, balanced literacy framework" (Hall et al, 2001), Four-Blocks incorporates four separate components into each day's lesson plans that instruct children as to how they can read, write and spell better, an approach that focuses upon the academic diversity found in today's schools.

  • Elements of Psychiatric Nursing Practice

    A 4 page research paper that draws on the nursing model of Hildegarde Peplau, as she is acknowledged to be one of nursing's leading theorists, as she was one of the first to emphasize the importance of the nurse/patient relationship.

When Peplau formulated her model of psychiatric nursing, Interpersonal Relations in Nursing, the routines of mental institutes tended to reinforce illness (Sills, 1999).

This examination of psychiatric nursing practice looks briefly at research literature in order to demonstrate how Peplau's model remains applicable today. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

As is the case when comparing community college education with university education, the end result is only different, certainly not inferior. Bibliography lists 1 source.

  • Truth in Patient Care

    An 8 page research paper/essay that discusses the ethics involved in telling the truth to patients. Healthcare practitioners are routinely faced with the responsibility of informing patients about the details and implications of their prognoses. No one enjoys being the bearer of bad tidings when a prognosis offers little hope. Also, it can be difficult to handle patient care when family members insist on sheltering a relative from the knowledge that they have a chronic condition. In other words, when, where and how to convey the truth of a prognosis is a recurring problem in healthcare in general and one that specifically impacts nursing. The writer explores ethical considerations, referring to Kantian ethics and cases cited in nursing literature. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Fundamental Theories/Nursing Faculty Shortage

    A 15 page research paper that looks at the nursing faculty shortage and relates this to a literature review which examines scholarly sources that pertain to fundamental theories that affect nursing leadership. While responsible leadership is necessary to the success of any industry, Spinelli stipulates that "Leadership in the healthcare environment today is essential and mandated if our healthcare system is to survive" (Spinelli, 2006, p. 11). The writer examines macroeconomic theory (supply and demand), transformational leadership, servant leadership, situational leadership and role theory. Bibliography lists 18 sources.

  • Effects of Stress

    A 5 page research paper that examines stress. Stress experience exists for “all human beings in all ages in varying degrees” (Lunney, 2006). It can be positive or negative producing both positive and negative effects. What is thought of as “stress” in the public mindset is actually stress overload, that is, which is what occurs when negative stressors become excessive. As established by Selye in the 1950s, this can produce “fight-or-flight response,” which if prolonged can lead to psychological and/or physical illness (Lunney, 2006). As this suggests, this topic is of particular interest to nursing because excessive stress has become so pervasive in contemporary society. Examination of literature pertaining to excessive stress reveals the physiological mechanisms that are triggered by stress, their effects both physically and psychologically, as well as suggests nursing interventions. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Quality Nursing Care

    An 8 page research paper that discusses the principles of quality nursing care. Nurses constitute the largest group of healthcare practitioners offering direct patient care; and therefore, whether or not patients receive quality care is intrinsically tied to the level of professionalism exhibited by a nursing staff (Hassmiller and Cozine, 2006). It follows then that quality patient care is the quintessential goal of nursing. This exploration of literature offers an overview of the principles of quality patient care that have been developed by nursing scholarship. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Change Theory and Shortages in Nursing

    A 10 page research paper that investigates the nursing shortage, with a particular focus on Canada. Influencing positive social change is one of the most problematic areas of public policy making. Currently, the healthcare systems of all the industrialized countries are facing the impact of a severe nursing shortage that is predicted by many experts to get worse over the coming decades. Policymakers and nursing leaders are struggling to change their systems and public perception of nursing in order to drawn new people to the profession, educate them, certify them and deploy them in sufficient numbers to meet the needs of aging populations. The question facing policymakers is how to negotiate the process of change in a manner that will best rectify the nursing shortage. This examination of literature examines how change theory can inform and direct the morass of issues to be considered in addressing this problem. Bibliography lists 15 sources.

  • Mandatory Staffing Ratios

    A 3 page research paper that examines the issue of mandatory nurse-to-patient staffing ratios. Within the context of the nursing shortage, nurses have become concerned that staffing ratios, that is the number of patients being cared for by a single nurse, have increased to the point where they jeopardize patient safety. The question being examined by many states is whether or not nurse staffing ratios should be mandatory. To determine the answer for this question, requires examination of the pertinent issues. The writer examines these issues in current literature and concludes that mandatory ratios are a good idea. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • U.S. Nursing Shortage

    A 4 page research paper that summarizes and discusses the nursing shortage in America. The current U.S. nursing shortage began in 1998 and resulted from a combination of social and economic factors, which included the “little growth in RN (registered nurse) wages, demographic changes in the RN workforce that decreased the supply of working RNs and a stressful hospital workplace environment” (Buerhaus, et al, 2007, p. 853). Currently, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services predicted that by 2010, there the nursing shortage will have reach the level of 29 percent, which translates to more than 800,000 nurses (Chandra and Willis, 2005). This examination of literature briefly summarizes this situation and the negative impact that it has on the American healthcare system. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Nursing and Stress

    An 8 page paper defining stress, examining nursing literature addressing the problem and discussing implications for nursing. It is completely reasonable to attribute the continued shortage of nurses to recent increases in nursing burnout, at least in part. By definition, burnout results in part from having more to do than one person can hope to do well. The description aptly fits today’s nursing environment. It has long been said that the first step in correcting a problem is to acknowledge that it exists. Active awareness of the signs of detrimental stress is necessary for recognizing and rectifying problems that may exist at present or arise in the future. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • The Bible, Koran, And Divine Comedy

    A 5 page paper. Each work is discussed separately in terms of their contribution to modern society. The influence and impact of the Bible itself can be found across life from culture to law to literature and so on. The contribution of the Koran itself is more difficult to determine although many individual Muslims contributed significantly to areas like medicine, math and architecture. Dante's Divine Comedy greatly influenced several different areas of life. The writer comments on which book contributed the most and why. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Interdisciplinary Unit on Earth Day

    This is a 4 page paper that begins with a general introduction of the need for children to understand the dangers to the earth. The unit, which is appropriate for grades 2 and 3, begins with an explanation of how Earth Day originated and why. Activities for this unit are outlined under multiple headings to provide an interdisciplinary unit. The headings are: Reading/Literature/Writing/Science/Environmental Health and Science/Environmental Education/Math/Writing/Reading/Art/Music. The essay also includes a brief outline of which Pennsylvania standards are included in the activities. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Patient Care and Individual Differences

    A 6 page review of two nursing articles dealing with patient care. The author of this paper provides an overview of each article, its presentation style, and findings, and identifies similarities in the message being conveyed by both articles. In addition to the direct impacts to health, illness and injury can result in a number of complex problems. The literature is replete with examples of treatment regimes and recovery expectations but always at mind must be individual variation in both physiology, emotion, and manner of dealing. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

  • Mexican Literature Comparison Victor Valle's Recipe of Memory Five Generations of Mexican Cuisine and Ruben Martinez's Crossing Over A Mexican Family on the Migrant Trail

    A 5 page overview of the content of these two books and the differences in presentational style elected by each author. The author of this paper emphasizes that Mexican literature offers a wide gamut of style and subject matter. Of particular interest is the way different writers chose to present their information. Some chose a discursive appropriation while others use formal appropriation. The approach elected by Valle falls into the latter category while that of Martinez falls into the former. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • History and Trade School Problems

    8 pages. This is a literature review regarding the issue of trade schools vs. schools of higher education. For the most part there is an ongoing argument that trade schools are not as socially responsible nor as distinguished as schools of higher education. This paper shows why that statement is in most cases a false one; trade schools can be and in many cases are advantageous over schools of higher education. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Once We Were Warriors/Postcolonial Theory

    A 6 page research paper/essay that analyzes the 1994 film “Once Were Warriors” offers an international audience a representation of Maori ethnic identity. When viewed in the light of postcolonial theory, the question that such an investigation immediately raises is whether or not the film offers an accurate vision of urban Maori society or if this film is itself a product of a postcolonial mindset. While certainly the domestic difficulties encountered by the film’s protagonists mirror the social disorder that plagues the Maori minority population of New Zealand, an examination of literature indicates that this question is complex and that an ethnic people cannot and should not facilely characterized as fitting so neatly into European-influenced stereotypes. Particularly in regards to how the film pictures Maori men. In order to argue this point, it is necessary to first look at the content of the film, then the basic arguments of postcolonial theory Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Feminism and The Awakening by Kate Chopin

    A 6 page essay that analyzes Kate Chopin's masterpiece The Awakening. The writer proposes that the ultimate question in interpreting this novel to discern why Edna commits suicide. Scholarship has explored this question, and this body of literature suggests that Chopin's evaluation of patriarchy and its effects goes beyond a surface reading that defines Victorian marriage as restrictive and Edna's "awakening" as purely sexual. Close examination of this novel suggests that Chopin intended the reader to see Edna as being psychically scarred by her strict Presbyterian background and cold, patriarchal father. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • How Eighteenth Century London Society Was Shaped by the Role of Women in 'The Rambler,' 'Evelina' and 'Moll Flanders'

    14 pages in length. There has rarely been a time in the history of mankind that women have not had to struggle in order to assert their worth as a gender. From the time when males first declared patriarchal authority over their female counterparts, women have fought – in various ways and with various results – to be treated both equitably and respectfully. Literature has long reflected this perpetual struggle between the genders, most often taking the side that support patriarchal control; however, a slow but steady change began occurring in eighteenth century London society that helped nurture a growing metamorphosis, which included Samuel Johnson 'Rambler' (Misella), Daniel Defoe's 'Moll Flanders' and Frances Burney's 'Evelina: Or, the History of a Young Lady's Entrance into the World.' Bibliography lists 11 sources.

  • Dystopia and the Film The Matrix

    This is a 5 page paper discussing the film “The Matrix” as a dystopia. The 1999 Wachowski brothers’ film “The Matrix” reflects the most severe fears and anxieties within today’s society in regards to a futuristic world as a “dystopia”. Opposite of More’s idealistic world portrayed in his work “Utopia”, the literary term “dystopia” refers to a “bad place”. Since the industrial revolution and more recently the computer and information revolution, society’s fears of possible negative results from growing technological achievements have been reflected in literature and cinema. While currently cyber-technology, that which is related to the computer world and artificial intelligence, is being promoted as a positive element within society in that humans are able to access free information and share information on a global scale, the film “The Matrix” portrays more so that element not promoted within technological circles, that is, the negative and de-humanizing aspects of cyber-technology which robs human of their individuality from a physical and mental perspective and uses humans for the proliferation and eventual dominance of artificial intelligence. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

  • Health Care Change Theories

    Case Study Tutorial : A 10 page paper. This paper presents a case study taken from the literature that involves the problem of missing medical charts at a health clinic. The paper provides the background for the case and the change strategies used to analyze the problem and implement a change. Lewin's force-field analysis and Rogers' diffusion of innovations models are discussed. How the change was implemented is explained. Tutorial comments are included. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Shoah Train Holocaust Poetry of William Heyen

    A 3 page research paper/essay that examines Heyen's latest volume of Holocaust poetry. Heyen's poetry has frequently focused on the Holocaust. He published his collection The Swastika Poems in 1977, which was subsequently revised and expanded into Erika (1984). His latest volume of Holocaust poetry is Shoah Train, which encompasses more than 70 poems written over the last dozen years (Shoah Train, 2003). A great deal of Holocaust literature has addressed the question of how such evil could have taken place. The Holocaust poetry in Shoah Train does not offer the reader definitive answers, but it does reveal multiple perspectives on human nature and its seemingly engrained propensity toward violence and evil. Heyen's poetry not only illuminates the nature of the evil that was the Holocaust, but also relates this experience to today's world and the continuing legacy left by this world-altering example of what human beings are capable of perpetuating on each other. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • 'To His Coy Mistress' by Andrew Marvell and Imagery

    A 5 page essay that discusses Andrew Marvell's seduction poem "To His Coy Mistress." In this poem, Marvell (1621-1678) employs striking use of imagery delineates both the pleasure involved in "ceasing the day" (carpe diem) and the shortness of time, which is the philosophy's rationale. The first half of the poem employs imagery to establish a sense of intimacy between Marvell and his lover. The second half employs time imagery to focus on the point that life is short. Collectively, this argument makes this one of English literature's most persuasive seduction poems. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Love in Geoffrey Chaucer's 'Parliament of Fowles' and 'The Book of the Duchesse'

    A 14 page research paper that argues that love plays a pivotal thematic role in two of Geoffrey Chaucer's greatest poems, The Book of the Duchesse and The Parliament of Fowles. While Chaucer is acknowledged as one of the greatest and most eloquent advocates of love in English literature, in these poems, he qualified his endorsement and dedication to love by placing it within certain institutional and societal boundaries. In The Book of the Duchesse, his elegy of consolation over the death of the Black Knight's lady is couched within the parameters established by the conventions of courtly love. Likewise, while the Parliament of Fowles is a love poem, Chaucer pictures love as susceptible to certain natural laws that should be meticulously followed. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • 'To His Coy Mistress' by Andrew Marvell and Imagery

    A 5 page essay that discusses Andrew Marvell's seduction poem "To His Coy Mistress." In this poem, Marvell (1621-1678) employs striking use of imagery delineates both the pleasure involved in "ceasing the day" (carpe diem) and the shortness of time, which is the philosophy's rationale. The first half of the poem employs imagery to establish a sense of intimacy between Marvell and his lover. The second half employs time imagery to focus on the point that life is short. Collectively, this argument makes this one of English literature's most persuasive seduction poems. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Reminiscence Therapy Research and Reflection

    A 27 page paper combining personal reflection on nursing practice with a literature review and analysis of research to formulate a method of putting research into practice. Even though reminiscence therapy gains mixed reports in formal research efforts, its benefits appear to be clear. Nurses using reminiscence therapy are not encouraging their patients to retreat into the past and therefore cease living in the present, but rather facilitating their patients’ ability to complete their life reviews and to gain a measure of satisfaction from the cumulative effect of the events of their lives. Bibliography lists 30 sources.

  • Medieval Theology in Dulcitius

    An 8 page research paper/essay on this medieval play. From a modern perspective, medieval drama is interpreted by the average person as being incredibly sexist and somewhat perverse in its intense focus on tortures that Christian martyrs, who are usually beautiful maidens, undergo for their faith. In her analysis of the plays of Hrotsvit, Colleen D. Richmond, assistant professor of writing and literature at George Fox University in Newberg, Oregon, argues that Hrotsvit's intentions are to help women redefine themselves and find empowerment within the framework of Christianity that allows them to subvert the domination of patriarchy. In other words, when viewed from a scholarly perspective, "Dulcitius," as well as the rest of Hrotsvit's plays, can be perceived in terms of constituting both social protest and medieval feminism. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Nursing and Employment Satisfaction

    An 8 page paper addressing the problem of stress and job satisfaction in the nursing profession. The paper includes a literature review and a proposed intervention that ultimately is taken over by the nurses themselves. A facilitator initiates the intervention and conducts a two-hour training overview, but then the nurses themselves meet later to discuss those issues important to them at the time. Underlying theory is that of the Neuman Systems Model, except in this case it is the nurse being focused on, rather than the patient. Bibliography lists 8 sources.

  • Practice, Knowledge, and Nursing Theory's Role

    An 11 page research paper that examines the relationship between theory, knowledge and practice. Florence Nightingale asserted that there is no differentiation between "men of thought" and "men of action" and that an "ideal" or philosophy should not be considered as isolated, but rather incorporated into everyday routines (Jacobs, 2001). In other words, Nightingale felt that there should be no artificial barriers between philosophy or theory and the utilization of nursing knowledge and practice. Nightingale obviously regarded herself as a woman of action, "dealing with daily activities of nursing," yet nursing scholars frequently portray her as more of a theorist and philosopher (Jacobs, 2001, p. 17). It was Nightingale's position that theory should lead the development of knowledge and practice and this is the orientation reflected in the vast majority of nursing literature, as this review illustrates. Bibliography lists 11 sources.

  • Nursing and Global Perspectives

    A 12 page research paper that examines how nursing is changing to meet the new demands of the twenty-first century. With the advent of global marketing and the revolution in telecommunications, the world has suddenly become a much smaller and much more interrelated place. All aspects of society are under reconstruction to fit the parameters of the changing global situation, and it is in this context that many nursing professionals are exploring what this means for nursing and what should be the place of a caring nurse, or as simply a caring individual, within the context of global health and healing. Literature review offered. Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Family Health Nursing

    A 6 page research paper that addresses literature pertaining to family health nursing. Family health nursing provides the “conceptual underpinnings for the practice of family nursing across the life span” (Garwick, 2002, p. 284). The Family Health Nurse (FHN) concept was developed by the World Health Organization (WHO) in Europe in order to provide a means to strengthen “family and community-oriented health services” (West and Macduff, 2006). WHO identifies the FHN as providing a “key contribution within a multi-disciplinary team of health care professionals in the attainment of the 21 health targets” established by the WHO HEALTH 21 policy framework (West and Macduff, 2006). More aspect of FHN are discussed. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Neuman Systems Model

    A 12 page research paper that examines this model. Nursing theorist Betty Neuman’s Systems Model Theory is one of the most widely utilized model of nursing being used today. This critique of Neuman’s model draws on literature in order to offer an extensive overview of its theoretical structure and its subsequent utility in regards to nursing practice, education, research and administration. This evaluation will also consider pluralism, ethical considerations and gender bias, as well as strengths and weaknesses, when discussing Neuman’s model in regards to achieving nursing goals. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Malpractice and the Nursing Profession

    A 4 page paper discussing the growing trend toward naming nurses in malpractice claims, reviewing current literature on the subject and making recommendations for the future. It is a common view that greater numbers can be attracted with higher salaries, and that appears to be true to a point. Beyond that point, however, other factors take on greater weight. There is no mystery in what those other factors are; Maslow defined them quite well and clearly nearly 40 years ago. Providing security and meeting basic needs is only the first step. Beyond that is a sense of belonging and ultimately self-actualization. As nursing continues to evolve, current leaders need to be working for greater possibilities for self-actualization in nursing. Doing so can lead to better patient outcomes in the present, while also making nursing more attractive to those not already in the profession. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Nursing Philosophy for Professional Practice

    A 7 page research paper that discusses a student-formulated professional philosophy of nursing practice, which is that making clinical judgment decisions in nursing care should be comfort based and founded on an understanding and knowledge of the patient’s continuous evolving physical and mental state. This examination of literature discusses how this philosophy can be applied to the four nursing domains of person, environment, health/illness and the nurse. Then, a broader perspective is given that takes into account the expectations of ANA standards of practice, the requirements of law and JCAHO standards. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Teaching the Bible’s Stories to Young Children

    A 10 page research paper that examines two aspects of Christian religious training. The first section of this reports examines literature on how young children in the current era perceive and understand the image of God in relation to Bible stories. Specifically this section examines how the image of God is perceived by the preschool child. The second section explores the application of principles discussed in the first section and this illustrates how consideration of age-appropriate material can greatly enhance the edification and develop of spirituality. Bibliography lists 9 sources.

  • Art and Healing

    The western medical establishment has come to recognize the value of dance, music, literature, painting and drama in preventing and treating illness. Techniques such as guided imagery, dance, art therapy and music have become the tools of health care professionals in all areas. These techniques have much in common with the Chinese practices of Qigong, yoga and acupressure. Eastern methods often integrate contemporary medical practices with ancient forms of healing. The western medical establishment is learning to give the Chinese practices the credit they deserve for the benefits they are able to bring to patients. This 6 page paper examines the use of both Eastern and Western therapies with a foundation of dance or music. Bibliography lists 15 sources.

  • Polish Composer Karol Syzmanowski

    This 8 page report discusses Karol Syzamowski (1882-1937), the Polish composer second only to Chopin in renown. Szymanowski was “a curious hybrid.” Considering the fact that his life spanned Poland's fin de-siecle rekindling and its all-too brief flourishing between the wars, it is remarkable that the music of Szymanskowski was able to survive to earn a meaningful level of respect at the close of the 20th century. The survival and proliferation of the composer’s work serve as a testimony to the collective determination of the Polish people to maintain a distinct culture of art, music, literature, and more. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • Resistance, Subculture, and Hip Hop

    A 4 page research paper on hip op. This examination of hip hop seeks to answer to basic questions on this music sub-genre. First of all, do the fans of hip hop constitute a subculture? Secondly, does this form of music in the early twenty-first century still offer modes of resistance to capitalism, such as those that have been identified in relation to punk? The following literature examination shows that the answer to both questions is definitely "yes, it does." Bibliography lists 5 sources.

  • Term Structure and Vasicek's Theory

    This 14 page paper examines the theory put forward in Vasicek’s 1977 paper “An Equilibrium Characterization of the Term Structure” published in The Journal of Financial Economics.

  • Auricular Acupuncture As Adjunctive Treatment To Ameliorate Post-Traumatic Stress Symptoms, Depression, Anxiety And Insomnia: Literature Review

    21 pages in length. The path to well being could not be more different between Eastern and Western philosophies; through man's successes in technological advancement, allopathic methods have virtually overshadowed consumer knowledge of or interest in ancient Eastern holism. That Western health care is based within a foundation of surgery and pharmacology while Eastern approaches it from an unadulterated, holistic approach speaks to a tremendous rift in how both entities perceive the path to wellness. This is not to say, however, that allopathic medicine is either inappropriate as a treatment method but rather that it is unsuitable as the only option when Eastern medicine is rooted in proven healing for the past 2,500 years. Taking a pill to ride the body and mind of anxiety, depression and insomnia of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder is merely treating the symptom rather than addressing the issues that have ultimately manifested in these ailments. Utilizing such holistic modalities as auricular acupuncture serves to unblock the trapped energy inherent to trauma response so it begins to channel through the body and mind continuum restoring both mental and physical well being. Bibliography lists 18 sources.

  • 'The End of History?' by Francis Fukuyama

    A 17 page paper that presents an outline and explanation of Fukuyama's thesis about the end of history and the last man. The essay "The End of History?" published in 1989 and the book, The End of History and the Last Man, published in 1992 are still being discussed and analyzed in today's literature. Fukuyama's works created a great deal of furor and criticism in some circles and were applauded in other circles. This paper reports the interpretations of these two works by numerous scholars and also presents the criticisms levied against the thesis by other scholars. The thesis is that liberal democracy has won as the preferred system; this was evidenced by the end of the Cold War and this constitutes the end of history. One question asked by a number of authors is whether Fukuyama means this is the end of history or the end of historical thinking? The thesis is much more complex than this statement would imply and the complexities are discussed and reflected upon. The writer includes their own reflections. Bibliography lists 21 sources.

  • 1400 to 1700 Japanese Relations with the West

    This is a 5 page paper discussing Japanese foreign relations with the West between the years 1400 and 1700. The years from 1400 to 1700 in Japan covered three Japanese historical periods: the Muromachi Period (1333-1573); the Azuchi-Momoyama Period (1573-1603); and, the Edo Period (1603-1867) which also included the great eras of the Shogun. While these centuries are generally not known for their great developments in international trade for Japan, there were certain instances in which Chinese and Western trade and influences and relations were introduced into Japan. During the mid 16th century, the Japanese greatly valued Portuguese weaponry which played a large factor in the ongoing warlord conflicts. By the late 16th century, foreign relations and trade had also been established with Britain, Spain and the Dutch who were as interested in the Japanese artisan goods as were the Japanese interested in goods imported from the Americas such as tobacco and sweet potatoes among other goods. Through the relations established with the English, Western shipbuilding and navigation tools were also of great value. During the mid-17th century however, shogun Iemitsu wanted to strengthen Japan by eliminating foreign influence which included further restrictions on Christianity, which had been introduced by the missionaries in the 1500s, a ban on travel outside of Japan, expulsion of foreign trade merchants and a ban on European literature among other restrictions thereby decreasing foreign trade and relations with the West. Bibliography lists 2 sources.

  • Jewish History and Spain's 'Golden Age'

    7 pages in length. Major changes occurred in the 11th century when the Umayyads steadily lost power as the Berbers rose in influence after capturing Cordoba in 1013 CE; the passing decades served as their barometer of progressing power. Cultural and commercial prominence became their focus as capitals and other cities were transformed into Meccas for the two very important elements. As these significant changes were taking place, one more addition would serve to establish an entire population as being both welcomed and honored: the Jews. Indeed, these individuals did not come empty-handed into their newfound environment; rather, they brought with them such important endowments as financial aptitude, politics, economic advisory, as well as a vast amount of humanities-related knowledge in the form of literature, academia and science. The blending of art, linguistics, philosophy, science and medicine rounded out a society that was heretofore underdeveloped in many of these areas. As such, the influence of so many learned Jews soon saw intellectuals and doctors alike holding some of the most important social/legal/political positions in the land. No bibliography.

  • Cinematic Structure and Coding of the Film Gone with the Wind

    This is an 11 page paper discussing the use of structure and code in film. Structuralism and semiotics and their use of codes and cues to define the underlying structures in society were first theories applied to the social sciences and then to the world of narrative literature. Marx and Freud further used semiotics to demonstrate how codes can be used effectively to psychologically affect those within society. Using this premise, during the early days of feature films semiotics were used to analyze the underlying structures of films. A good example of cinematic coding is used in the classic film “Gone with the Wind” made in 1939. The film uses coding on two different levels to define the structures within society. Firstly, the film uses references and themes relevant to the era of the Civil War depicted in the film. Secondly, and probably more importantly, the film uses coding to define the structure of society during the 1930s when the film was made. Specific contrasts of bad and good, black and white, pure and scandalous, affluence and poverty are portrayed using visual, narrative and auditory codes. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • Women with a Victimization History and Drug Abuse Treatment Management
