Assessment 1 Instructions: Locating Credible Databases and Research

Create a 1-2-page resource that will describe databases that are relevant to EBP around a diagnosis you chose and could be used to help a new hire nurse better engage in EBP. Introduction Evidence-based practice (EBP) integrates the best evidence available to guide optimal nursing care, with a goal to enhance safety and quality. EBP is crucial… Continue reading Assessment 1 Instructions: Locating Credible Databases and Research

Assessment 1 Instructions: Applying Ethical Principles

Whether you are a nurse, a public health professional, a health care administrator, or in another role in the health care field, you must base your decisions on a set of ethical principles and values. Your decisions must be fair, equitable, and defensible. Each discipline has established a professional code of ethics to guide ethical behavior. In this assessment, you will practice working through an ethical dilemma as described in a case study. Your practice will help you develop a method for formulating ethical decisions.

6-2 Discussion: Professional Practice

When discussing and evaluating professional ethics, it is essential to understand the purpose, terminology, and repercussions of professional misconduct. The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) code of professional conduct is the gold standard for defining professional conduct in accounting; it is therefore important for business professionals to be familiar with.

The chi-square test of association

Chi-Square tells us whether two groups have significantly different opinions, which becomes a very useful piece of data for survey research. It’s applied to cross-tabulations, which can look like this

Week 7 regression correlation discussion post

Run a regression analysis in Excel and provide the results in your post along with your raw data.
Looking at the R2 value, explain what this indicates about the strength of the relation. 
Then write out your Regression Equation, state if your p-value, and conclusion.

Week six hypothesis testing I and II; Testing differences between means, variances, and proportions

A town official claims that the average vehicle in their area sells for more than the 40th percentile of your data set.
Using the data, you obtained in week 1, as well as the summary statistics you found for the original data set (excluding the super car outlier), run a hypothesis test to determine if the claim can be supported. 
Make sure you state all the important values, so your fellow classmates can use them to run a hypothesis test as well. 
Use the descriptive statistics you found during Week 2 — NOT the new SD you found during Week 4. 
Because again, we are using the original 10 sample data set NOT a new smaller sample size. 
Use alpha = .05 to test your claim.

probability and counting rules Discrete probability distributions.

Recall the car data set you identified in Week 2. 
You will want to calculate the average for your data set.  (Be sure you use the numbers without the supercar outlier.) 
Once you have the average, count how many of your data points fall below the average.
You will take that number and divide it by 10. 
This will be your p or “success” in your problem. 
Once you have p, calculate q.

week four normal distribution one and two

Recall the car data set you identified in Week 2.
We know that this data set is normally distributed using the mean and SD you calculated.  (Be sure you use the numbers without the supercar outlier.)
