A. Functional Differences
(Cherry & Jacob, 2014) chpa4[s2]/12

The task directions for this prompt are to create a professional mission statement that showcases a professional development plan by doing the following: A. Explain the functional differences between a regulatory agency, such as a board of nursing (BRN), and a professional nursing organization (PNO) as it pertains to your professional nursing practice. The rubric prompt for a score of (4) is to provide a logical explanation, with substantial detail, of the functional differences between a regulatory agency, such as a BRN, and a PNO as it pertains to the candidate’s professional nursing practice. My advice is that this task prompt is looking for your understanding of the differences between regulatory agencies such as the Board of Nursing in your state, your State Nursing Practice Act (which is state law) and professional nursing organizations such as the American Nurses Association with their Code of Ethics (which is not law, but serves as a nursing standard upon which all American nurses may base their professional behavior and actions). Your state NPA or BRN and the Nursing Code of Ethics could be referred to in this section. If so, be sure to cite and reference them. Make sure you are discussing this prompt under its own heading in your paper.
Nurse practice acts provide protection of the public and protection of the title of RN. This is accomplished through the development of specific regulations regarding education and examination of competence to practice. Each act contains guidelines for disciplinary action to protect both the public and professional nursing. The nurse…...

...Rock-n-Roll Negotiator – Part 1 There are many variables that occur within a negotiation. Some of these variables include the influence of agents, constituencies, coalitions, and audiences. In this scenario, a popular and successful rock band, The Negotiators, is looking to negotiate a salary increase. Each of the three team members is asking for a difference percentage increase and must negotiate with their publisher through the use of the firm Agent-town. All members of the negotiation must agree on an increase. Team A will summarize this negotiation below. The Negotiators What the band has to consider is the amount of parties involved in the negotiation and what will be the best negotiation process to come to the conclusion of the right salary for the performance and the skills that the band has produced. The band decided to go with Agent-Town to represent the band. The negotiation style that the band decided to go with is the dyad. This is a very effective for a group that does not have negotiation skills and allows the agent to negotiate one on one with R-n-R. The agent will express the desire for each of the band members to receive a raise for their efforts, but even though each band member wants a different percentage for a raise it will be the agents’ responsibility to have alternative goals to come up with an agreement. The band has given the agent the power to decide what will be an acceptable offer and after negotiating arrived at an agreement......

Rolls Royce

...Rolls-Royce: A Manufacturer at Your Service Why can we state that Rolls-Royce has become a service provider? What kind of services do they offer? Rolls-Royce took back control of their after-sales in the late 1990s (because competition led to a drop in margins) and they became a significant source of revenue for the company (63% of total civil aerospace revenues come from aftermarket services). Before that, much of after-sales service had been given to third parties. After-sales is actually a service and that is why we can state that Rolls-Royce has become a service provider. They created a highly customer-centric business model that combined manufacturing and services. The services they offer: * The after-sales services they offered were mainly maintenance contracts based on the concept of ‘Power by the hour’. This means that the customers paid a fixed maintenance fee per aircraft flight hour (i.e. only when the engines are running). For this, Rolls-Royce offered to maintain the engines and replace them if they broke down. The company offered different service packages for different customers: - TotalCare for the civil aerospace business. - CorporateCare for the operators of business jets. - Mission Ready Management Solutions (MRMS) for the defense aerospace business. - Other after-sales programs for its customers in its other businesses like marine propulsion and energy. Rolls-Royce earned the most profits from its services offered to its customers in the...

...Tootsie Roll Industries The Hershey Company Interpretation and comparison between the two companies' ratios Ratios (pg 735) Ratio Receivable Turnover Ratio (Net Sales/(Average Accounts Receivable) $497,717/ (($32,371+$35,075)/ 2) = 14.76 $4,946,716/(($487,285+$522,673)/ 2) = 9.80 This ratio compares net sales divided by the average accounts reciavable. Tootsie Roll has far less sales but has to extend less credit on average to collect the full amount owed. By placing purchases in accounts recievable a business is able to generate more sales but does so by offering in essence an interest free loan to the customer. The accounts recievable indicates that both businesses are able to collect on their debts quickly. Since Tootsie has a higher percentage recievable turnover ratio they often have a relatively higher amount of cash on hand for running the business. Average Collection Period (365/Recievables turn over ratio) page 402 365/14.76 = 24.7 days 365/9.80 = 32.2 days The average collection period indicates that Tootsie Roll is able to convert an accounts reviable item into cash just under 8 days faster than Hershey Company. Tootsie has a greater likelihood of meeting its financial obligations since it is more likely to promptly recieve payment. One factor that may influence the interpretation of this result is the terms by which each business extends credit. For example if both companies extend credit under net 30 terms, Tootsie is more......

...were the first artists to produce Rock music?" This is also an easy question were I will discuss the first Rockers. Continuing on, my next question will ask, "How was the term ‘Rock and Roll' created, and by who?" This may turn out to be a hard question to answer because I am sure there a multiple answers. "Has Rock become more or less popular since its inception?" will be my next question. For this question I will have to look for a survey or poll of some type and present its data. My final question will be, "How has the Music been changed over the years and who changed it?" This will also be an easy question, albeit a long answer. For that question I will be referring to Alternative and Grunge Rock, my preferred form of the music. For my information I will mainly be using the internet. I also may get some of my answers from a dictionary or encyclopedia. My main sources on the internet will be the online encyclopedia at, and anything I can find at I will also be asking my father who is more into classic rock, but a fan none the less. He has been listening to rock since the 60's when he was about my age. Thus far, Wikipedia has been the most helpful resource I have found, although I should probably go to the library or something and find a book about early Rock and Roll, just to be balanced in my research. Before moving into my research questions, I would like to discuss the origins of Rock music. Rock first surfaced as its own genre in 1953;......

...Proceeds and Affects from the Loan The Tootsie Roll Industries, Inc. has chosen to allocate the funds from the loan to critical departments that will contribute to the growth of the company. The loan will permit Tootsie Roll to acquire new updated equipment for better production such as robotics to increase productivity. The allocation of these funds will open up research, and development, to produce healthier and cheaper ingredients for products.

Earlier days, much of the service operations were handled by third parties. Companies have identified that after-salesservice is a significant source of revenue for the organization.

Current liabilities $57,972 $1,618,770 Gross Profit Ratio Gross profit $165,047 = 33.5% $1,631,569 = 33.0% Only product sales were used for the Tootsie Roll calculation since Hershey does not have rental and royalty revenue.

Rock and Roll

...Rock n Roll In the 1950’s rock n roll became a dividing and unifying force, the impact of rock music was felt by the masses. Rock and Roll pitted the government, parents and the mass media against teenagers. At the same time rock and roll helped erode some of the social and political issues in America. The emergence and growth of rock n roll could be attributed to the events that took place in the 1950’s and 60’s in America (Azzam, 2007). Study of the role of rock n roll by historians evidently shows that its role was to unite the blacks and the whites by creating a common culture as well addressing the political issues during this period of warfare. This paper addresses Bob Dylan’s song of 1962 bringing out its role on addressing political and social injustices of the 1960’s. In a New York café was first heard was Bob Dylan’s song, “A Hard Rain’s A-Gonna Fall’ in 1962. At this time, there was a lot of anxiety in America following the events of the Cold War. A Cuba- Soviet Union alliance was getting cozy making the Pentagon and state department analysts nervous. At this summer period, there were reports that Russia had increased their military aide in Cuba. During the same time, Rob Dylan released a dozen of songs all which were politically influenced aiming at addressing the issues transpiring during this era. Historians and journalists have always treated Dylan as a quintessential protest singer. Historians and journalists have always treated Dylan’s songs as an......

...analyze supply chain performance there are following drivers to consider: facilities, inventory, information, transportation, sourcing and pricing. Rolls-Royce’s business is on the products with long life cycle. Gas turbines are not a commodity product and it takes years to come up with a new system. This fact allows the company to achieve strategic fit, stay competitive and generate revenues over the long term. Obviously, each of the performance drivers is considered in order to get the results shown in the annual report. Facilities are the physical locations where product is fabricated, assembled or stored. Possible choices for a company are to have one facility, so that increase efficiency, but lower responsiveness or to have a few of them, so that increase responsiveness by sacrificing efficiency. Exact location, capacity, variety of products should be considered. Rolls-Royce, competing on a market with high-value products, initially goes for responsiveness and locates facilities closer to customers: UK, Germany, USA, Asia; all together service centers or manufacturing bases in 50 countries (Datamonitor, 2008). This decision also helps to lower business risks. However attention started being paid to efficiency as well; £400 million invested in the UK in order to achieve better efficiency and productivity of operations (Rolls-Royce, n.d., p.5). This combination of close location and high productivity must increase the product costs, so that company has to find some......
