Incorporate Theme

Incorporate theme. Write two possible endings for your story where you incorporate theme and meaning. Choose one of the details in your story to act as a symbol. (Example: a broken vase to symbolize a broken friendship. Or a statue of a famous woman medical doctor to symbolize a new independence.) Write Ending A to be too obvious and preachy about the theme. In Ending B, try to imbed the theme and meaning into the action and character – be more subtle!

What impact do our emotions, anxiety, and self-concept have on our ability to critically think at a higher level


Module 2 Overview
Introduction
What impact do our emotions, anxiety, and self-concept have on our ability to critically think at a higher level? What about external factors? How do we as nurses manage these issues and their impact on our critical thinking behaviors? This week we will analyze the impact these internal and external factors have on our critical thinking abilities. In addition we will strategize ways in which to improve the learning process for new nurses when it comes to critical thinking behaviors and skills, what unique and creative methods can you think of to help with this process. 
Learning Outcomes
After completing this module, you will be able to:
  • Analyze the impact of internal forces (i.e., self-concept, anxiety, moods, culture) and external forces (i.e., society, organizational culture, generational differences) on critical thinking behaviors.
  • Strategize ways to improve the mentorship of new nurses related to developing critical thinking and clinical judgment.
Reading & Resources 
Read Chapters 3 & 6 In Rubenfeld, M. G., & Scheffer, B.K. (2010). Critical thinking TACTICS for nurses: Achieving the IOM competencies (2nd ed.). Sudbury, MA: Jones and Bartlett. 
Learning Activities
  • Discussions: Participate in Discussion 2.
  • Assignment: Complete & Submit Assignment 1. Click on the Assignment 1 link in this module for more details.

Discussion 2
Thinking and other cognitive processes such as analysis and synthesis are dependent upon many variables, both internal and external. Each person has learned patterns of thinking that are a result of culture, ethnicity, education and genetics. 
Choose ONE of the following to answer in this discussion forum: 
  1. Discuss a previous experience when your own critical thought processes were “disrupted” because of a particular situation, anxiety, or lack of confidence.  Explain how you could overcome the disruption of thinking if you would be faced with the same situation today. Specifically how might you alter your way of thinking when confronted with internal forces or variables?
OR
  1. Discuss a specific instance when external environmental issues such as societal rules, work environment or a cultural or generational “disconnect” caused your critical thinking to be disrupted. How might you handle this situation differently knowing what you know now?
Please support your initial discussion and opinions with at least two citations from the assigned readings, or peer-reviewed professional nursing literature. You are required to respond to two peers, but do not need to include reference citations to the responses unless you include someone else’s ideas in the responses. Please refer to the Course Syllabus for Discussion Participation Guidelines & Grading Criteria.

Business Law

Ramirez was a general contractor who specialized in the building of small commercial buildings. He entered into a contract with Nguyen to build a commercial building in a small retail shopping center. The contract had the following clause:
In the event that the builder is late in delivering the building, ready for occupancy, builder will suffer a reduction in contract price of $1500 per day for each day beyond the agreed upon completion date.
Completion was scheduled in the contract for December 1 of the current year. The total price of the building was $1,500,000. As of October of the current year the buyer had made payments of $1,200,000 as agreed upon and was due to pay the final $300,000 on the day the building was completed.

Ramirez was unable to deliver the building until December 15; 14 days after the agreed upon delivery date. He suffered from a late supplier who held him up for three days and from a worker’s strike that held him up for 11 days. Nguyen paid all of the last payment except for $21,000 for the delayed delivery. Ramirez believes he is entitled to the full amount and has initiated this suit.

Discuss the issues here and explain who should prevail and indicate why. Use the following format:
