part of the word count.
A visual aid is required.
Assignment Focus: The student should strive to convey information that enhances an audience’s
understanding of an interesting and challenging topic.
Do not try to persuade the audience; merely
provide information that engages and interests people. Speakers should strive to display:
1. Effective style through precise and concise with words while using varied and vivid language.
2. Logically consistent and relevant material.
3. Supporting research from at least three different, qualified references, cited during the speech.
4. Clear organization illustrating one or more of the 7 identified patterns (chronological, spatial,
problem/solution, cause/effect, categorical (topical), compare/contrast, and residues).
5. Well-phrased main points that comply with our STOP-5 guidelines (single sentence, thesis related, one
idea per point, parallel structure, between 2-5 main ideas).
6. Effective delivery through illustrating concepts in our acronyms ELOQUENT and DEBONAIR.
Advice regarding your preparation outline: Outlines should contain 4 distinct sections: Introduction,
Body, Conclusion, and Bibliography. The introduction should contain a full-text of the introduction,
including marginal notations of the introduction functions (except tone) with arrows or brackets to show
the sentences that fulfill their purpose. The body main headings should contain 2-5 Roman numeral
main points, phrased as full declarative sentences (not fragments, not questions). Supporting ideas
should be arranged in standard outline form ( I.A.1.a.i., etc.) Additionally, between main points, the
speaker should include the word “signpost” or “transition” and the actual words that smoothly connect
one idea to the next. The conclusion should be, like the introduction, a full-text recital of a student’s
closing words. The summary and clincher function labels should be flagged as marginal notations,
pointing to the words that accomplish their purpose. Bibliography should cite works consulted.

Hello, my name is Susana Ramirez. I would like to introduce myself and provide you with some of my nursing backgrounds. I have over eight years of experience in the nursing field. I became a registered nurse in 2014 and specialized in critical care until 2019. In pursuance of my goal to further my education, I completed the Master of Nursing Science at the University of Miami in August 2018 I have been practicing as an Advanced registered nurse practitioner at the University of Miami caring for gastrointestinal and liver disease patients. For the past year, I have been a clinical faculty member in the MSN program at Florida National University, and this new role opened my eyes to the world of education and was one of the driving factors to pursue my Doctorate of nursing practice (DNP) here at Frontier.
You are the Union President and have been tasked with developing the Union proposals for the upcoming negotiations with. Essay
You are the Union President and have been tasked with developing the Union proposals for the upcoming negotiations with. Your members had a 1% increase in wages for each of the three previous years of the current three-year agreement. You know, for a fact, that Management employees received a 5% annual pay increase, 500% more than your members. Your members know this as well, and they are livid. Your Union members have charged you with doing far more in the upcoming negotiations, as a 1% increase in wages is far less than the current rate of inflation and they have told you in no uncertain terms they will not stand for any more such treatment.
While the Management team has attempted to keep salary increases a secret you know from talking with many salary employees that HCC managers received 5% across-the-board annual raises for each of the past three years which has caused considerable resentment among your union rank-and-file. You have heard that future managerial compensation increases will take the form of at-risk annual lump-sum bonuses based on achieving the projected strategic yearly goals in Item 1 over the next three years.
You are also hearing rumors that Management is planning significant investments into the site to upgrade its production equipment. Overall, this is a good sign, as a large capital investment means the plant will stay, but you have also heard that this new equipment will eliminate 30-50 Production employee jobs. This reduction will be a major issue for your members, as you are not interested in bargaining jobs away.
The average hourly wage for Production employees at the site is $16.00 per hour. The employees work a 40-hour week. Little to no overtime is worked. Thus, the average annual wage for Production employees equals $33,280 dollars per year. There are currently 1000 Union production workers in the bargaining unit.
You are planning on starting negotiations with the Company with a proposed 8% annual increase in wages for each of the following three years. Your minimum level of wage increase is 3% per year.
For the purpose of this exercise, you will cost out proposals for only the first year of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement.
In previous negotiations in years past the Management negotiation team has always stated they may elect to lockout labor at any time if it believes that no reasonable progress has been made in negotiations. However, you know that work stoppages will severely damage HCC customer relationships and its valued reputation as a firm dedicated to the prompt delivery of quality products. This is to your advantage
HCC employees currently have a first-dollar (no deductible or co-pay) health benefits package that costs $3,500 annually per employee. If left unchanged, the cost of health benefits is expected to increase 10% annually for each of the next three years.
You have heard through the grapevine that Management is seeking to drop the current health care plan and substitute it with an HMO-type plan, that costs less and has an annual deductible. This is not acceptable to you or the Union members, as your members have zero interest in changing to an HMO style medical plan. There have been far too many issues with employees in other firms being denied surgery or their choice of doctors that are outside of the HMO plan. You and your members have no interest in changing your medical plan, and your objective is to keep it exactly as it is
The current contract includes six paid holidays and two days of miscellaneous leave. For costing purposes – each holiday costs the company, on average, a total of $128,000 ($16/hour x 8 hours x 1000 employees = $128,000). The Union members has made it clear to you they. believe they deserve two additional holidays per year, which can be fixed or floating.
For or every 1% increase in hourly wages the total increase in cost equals per year, and compounded every year thereafter (1.00% increase x $16/hour x 2080 hours per year x 1000 employees equals $332,800). Your bottom line of 3% will equal close to $1 million dollars to your members
The 2nd shift differential is currently $0.15 cents per hour and hasn’t been increased in two decades. This is very low; Your going in position is to propose an increase to $1.00 per hour, with your lowest acceptable differential at $0.50 per hour. There are 300 Union employees on 2nd
The 3rd shift differential is currently $0.25 cents per hour, and hasn’t been increased in two decades. This is very low; Your going in position is to propose an increase to $1.00 per hour, with your lowest acceptable differential at $0.50 per hour. There are 300 Union employees on 3rd
Your Challenge by Union Members
The Union members have heard rumors of a layoff if new automated equipment is added. They are in favor of upgrading the antiquated equipment. They want you to ensure a fair severance package is negotiated, allowing enough employees to voluntarily retire, with severance, to avoid any involuntary layoffs.
In summary – Your Union members have charged you to negotiate nothing less than the following:
A minimum 3% raise for each year of the new agreement
Two additional paid holidays per year
A 50 cents per hour increase in 2nd

UNIT 2 – DISCUSSION BOARD
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Healthy People 2030 goal from the Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) include increasing the number of adults who have controlled blood pressure (BP) (ODPHP, n.d.-a). Decreasing or controlling BP can prevent stroke, heart attacks, heart failure, and chronic kidney disease (CKD). Current baseline data from ODPHP (n.d.-b) show 47.8% of adults ? 18 years of age have controlled BP and their target goal is for 60.8% to have controlled BP. Hypertension parameters include a systolic BP ? 140 or a diastolic BP greater ? 90.
When patients seek health care in outpatient and inpatient settings, nurses and providers review medications that patients report they are currently taking. Most patients with hypertension take medications from a variety of drug classes such as diuretics, calcium channel blockers, beta blockers, and ACE inhibitors. There are also patients who don’t take medications and state they prefer to reduce their blood pressure through diet, exercise, or supplements. Then there are patients who state they don’t take medications due to side effects they have experienced. Patients may have uncontrolled BP because they feel there are no other options aside from medication. But other options such as lifestyle changes and complementary alternative medicine allows a patient to choose their intervention, and therefore may be more compliant. With the modeling and role modeling theory; developed by Helen Erickson, Evelyn Tomlin, and Mary Ann Swain; patients can take control of their health (“Modeling and role modeling,” 2020).
I chose this theory because it allows the patient to be the expert in their own care. The theory allows the nurse to provide patient care while respecting the patient’s individuality through clinical practice and focusing on patient needs. Modeling acknowledges that each patient has a distinctive perception of their world in which the nurse should seek to know, understand, and appreciate its value and significance. In role modeling, the patient is the expert in their health care in which the nurse provides unconditional acceptance. The nurse should allow the planning of unique interventions and assist and foster the patient in accomplishing, maintaining, and advancing their health.
One way to address the Healthy People 2030 goal of increasing the number of adults with controlled BP is by conducting research, since some patients prefer alternatives to medication. This can be accomplished by obtaining the best and most relevant evidence from existing literature through step one of evidence-based practice (EBP) (Melnyk
