Your Special Project for Lesson 7 is called “Through the Ringer” You will use the moral theories discussed in chapter 9.  Read the dilemma described below.  Then, respond to each of the numbered prompts, based on the dilemma.  


It is Week 7 of the early 8-week fall term. You are taking 3 courses so that you can get back on track after a rough spring term. It’s 10PM and you stayed up all night yesterday studying for your chemistry ex am, but you realize you misread the calendar: the final deadline for Es say 3 in your English Composition 1 course is in 2 hours. You know that Es say 3 is worth almost 30% of your final grade, and getting a 0 means you are no longer passing the course. You have worked hard all term, and you cannot afford to fail the course because this is your third attempt, and you are already on academic probation. Your instructor’s syllabus that they do not accept late work for Es say 3 because of the time limits of the end of the term. You know that your instructor won’t see their email for at least another 12 hours.

Your classmate told you about a website where you can download an es say from another student who has taken the same class at the same college; all you have to do to gain access to the materials is create an account and upload 5 different course materials to your own account. Time is running out, and you have to decide what to do.


1. What is the moral issue at stake here?

2. Explain how you would handle the situation if you subscribed to ethical subjectivism  and why you reached that decision  

3. Explain how you would handle the situation if you subscribed to cultural relativism  and why you reached that decision  

4. Explain how you would handle the situation if you subscribed to utilitarianism  and why you reached that decision  

5. Explain how you would handle the situation if you subscribed to deontological ethics  and why you reached that decision  

6. Explain how you would handle the situation if you subscribed to rights-based ethics  and why you reached that decision  

7. Finally, after running the situation through the various moral theories, explain how you would personally handle the situation.  To which moral theory does your decision most adhere?

research paper

research paper

need to research information regarding blood pressure including:

What is measured (obviously blood pressure but for the paper you need to be specific)?

Does it appear that abnormal blood pressure can alter or affect the way blood cells normally look or function?  

Papers will need to be typed with standard 1” margins.  Double spaced.  

Approximately 3-4 pages long but content is more important than length.

Policy initiative

Policy initiative


Write 3-5 pages about what constitutes a high-quality early childhood program or policy by evaluating a current policy or policy initiative.


The preschool years (ages 3-5) are an exciting time of growth and change. Perhaps the greatest areas of change are within the cognitive and language domains. The average 24-month-old has a vocabulary of 250 words and can put two words together in a simple sentence. A four-year-old can speak in multi-word sentences; use prepositions, adjectives, and pronouns; and will, of course, ask millions of questions.

Preschoolers are also growing in terms of their ability to form friendships, play with others, and take those initial, crucial steps toward independence. Rather than simply playing next to another child, like a two-year-old, a four-year-old can create a game with his peers, pretend that a box is a house, and role-play some of the situations that play out in his daily life, like going to the grocery store or to the bank. Play is a critical component of learning for children in this age group, as it helps them make meaning from their worlds and extends their innate curiosity to learn.

Many families begin to consider early childhood education environments for their preschoolers. The research on the benefits of these programs is significant. Children who attend high quality learning programs tend to be able to resolve conflicts well, are self-regulated, and learn to trust other adults in the school setting. Low quality settings, however, may have the opposite effects on preschoolers’ growth and development.

Note: Because the assessments in this course move progressively through periods of child development, you are encouraged to complete them in sequential order, 1-5.

Early childhood education (birth-age eight) is at the top of the national agenda, yet many children do not have access to the educational settings that they need. For this assessment, write 3-5 pages about what constitutes a high-quality early childhood program or policy by evaluating the success of an existing initiative.

Address the following:

Describe the characteristics of high-quality early childhood programs.

Discuss and give examples of at least three benefits of early childhood education. Use scholarly research findings to support your position.

Apply psychological theories to a policy or policy initiative relating to early childhood education, such as No Child Left Behind (NCLB), Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Early Intervention, Head Start, Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) or another program of your choosing. Include details about how the program is implemented and what population it aims to serve.

Explain how early childhood education and policy affect the physical, social, and cognitive aspects of child development. Use scholarly research findings to support your position.

Post a comparison of at least two APRN board of nursing regulations in your state/region

Post a comparison of at least two APRN board of nursing regulations in your state/region

 Discussion: Professional Nursing and State-Level Regulations
Boards of Nursing (BONs) exist in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Mariana Islands, and the Virgin Islands. Similar entities may also exist for different regions. The mission of BONs is the protection of the public through the regulation of nursing practice. BONs put into practice state/region regulations for nurses that, among other things, lay out the requirements for licensure and define the scope of nursing practice in that state/region.
It can be a valuable exercise to compare regulations among various state/regional boards of nursing. Doing so can help share insights that could be useful should there be future changes in a state/region. In addition, nurses may find the need to be licensed in multiple states or regions.
To Prepare:
Review the Resources and reflect on the mission of state/regional boards of nursing as the protection of the public through the regulation of nursing practice.
Consider how key regulations may impact nursing practice.
Review key regulations for nursing practice of your state’s/region’s board of nursing and those of at least one other state/region and select at least two APRN regulations to focus on for this Discussion..
By Day 3 of Week 5
Post a comparison of at least two APRN board of nursing regulations in your state/region with those of at least one other state/region. Describe how they may differ. Be specific and provide examples. Then, explain how the regulations you selected may apply to Advanced Practice Registered Nurses (APRNs) who have legal authority to practice within the full scope of their education and experience. Provide at least one example of how APRNs may adhere to the two regulations you selected.

Discussion Board 3

Discussion Board 3


Heart failure (HF) is a common pathology that affects over 6 million adults. The lifetime risk of HF is 1:9 for males and 1:6 for females, and increases greatly in individuals who have experienced prior myocardial infarction (MI). Thus, treatment and prevention of HF are a major priority for most health care professionals, yet poor prevention and care are the most cited reasons for adverse clinical outcomes.

In 2014, the FDA approved the drug Entresto for the management and treatment of HF, finding that it significantly reduced the risk of death from HF-related conditions by 16-20% and was particularly effective at reducing the risk of death for HF patients with reduced left ventricular ejection fraction (LVEF). Entresto is actually a combination of two drugs: sacubitril, which inhibits the enzyme neprilysin, and valsartan, which is an angiotensin II receptor antagonist.

How do these drugs work together to reduce the risk of further heart failure and preserve function? In your response, briefly describe the two signaling pathways that are affected by the drug, how they are affected, and what the body’s overall response to the drug intervention is. How does this benefit patients with HF?

In addition to your own original post, you should respond to at least two other students’ posts, and to any replies to your original post as well. Replies should be substantive, not just a “me too” or “well done” type of comment. Please note that in your response, plagiarism is not allowed. Please do NOT simply cut and paste information from books, journals, websites, or other sources. In addition, direct quotation of sources, regardless of whether or not the source is cited, is not allowed. Please summarize the material and what you have learned in your own words.

Discussion 1

Discussion 1

Topic 1 The Scientific Method 

Before responding to this discussion, please read the Scientific Method Tutorial and if needed review optional readings.

Describe an example of how you use the scientific method in your daily life. Which observation(s) lead you to use the scientific method? State a good hypothesis, how you are testing the hypothesis (the experiment), results, and conclusion. What are the control and treatment groups in your experiment? What are the dependent and independent variables in your experiment? Name at least one controlled variable.

Your main response should be a minimum of 150 words (more is OK). You must also post a minimum of one significant reply to a classmate’s post that contributes to their learning. The reply should be a minimum of 100 words.

In your replies please provide suggestions for how the other students’ scientific method examples can be improved. Examples: How can the hypothesis be edited to make it more specific (better)? Is a proper control group included? Are the independent, dependent, and controlled variables correctly identified? How can the experimental design be improved? Also consider sharing any useful videos, tutorials or websites that helped you better understand the scientific method.
