Of the available positions, I am most interested in those dealing with human resources, specifically recruitment, training, and development. I believe that my educational and professional experience will make me an asset to any of these positions. First, I am an MBA student with a constriction in organizational leadership, which has prepared me for a wide variety of positions in human resources. Perhaps more important is my work experience. I have worked as a recruitment analyst, which gave me practical experience in the HR field. In that position I was responsible for company-wide recruitment procedures, including preparations of job announcements, employment contracts, the candidate interview process, and candidate evaluation guidelines. Because I already have some practical experience directly relating to the three positions in which I am interested, I feel that I would be an excellent addition to…… [Read More]

Inappropriate Hospital Admission Raising Health

Words: 5078 Length: 17 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 82715825

Therefore, a basis is formed on which to reduce the inappropriate admissions after the correct rates are determined (estuccia, Shwartz, Ash, and Payne, 1996).

The connection between hospitalization rates and the inappropriateness of the admissions cannot be confirmed. A study of adults revealed that there was no link between the rates of hospitalization and the inappropriateness of the admission while a similar study conducted with no age limits produced contrary results. Three procedures of coronary angiography, upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, and carotid endarterectomy were used in another study to find out the relationship between the varying admission rates and their appropriateness (estuccia, Shwartz, Ash, and Payne, 1996).

It was revealed that there was more inappropriateness in high-use areas. When this study was repeated for a small area, the outcomes were quite different. This showed that inappropriateness cannot be used as a basis to find out the cause for the differing hospitalization…… [Read More]

Applying for a Better Future

The pieces that form the buildings in which we lead our daily lives are made from such inspiring creativity. Whether it is architecture or interior design, the most beautiful constructions, inside and outside, are those that we admire most. I have loved studying geometry since I was a little girl. Sharp corners, semi-circles, all of these figures fascinated me as pieces of a puzzle. I saw these pieces combining to form buildings, and designs inside of buildings that enhanced a certain construction's beauty. I have, thus, been fascinated by architecture and interior design for as long as I know, and as soon as I found that the New Jersey Institute of Technology has a wonderful Architecture and Interior Design Program, I knew that this was a destiny for me.

2. What have you learned from a mistake?

Of course, even as I speak with great pride of my accomplishments, I can quite easily recall some of my more humbling moments. Without question, and especially in the complex and fast-paced world of global finance, one is bound to make a mistake.

And quite often, if one is to truly learn a lesson, the mistake might very well have been fairly huge and costly. Certainly mine was.

While working at Deutsche Bank, I in advertently placed an incorrect order when buying shares for a client. Naturally, when the client encountered the mistake in his account, he became very angry and expressed this anger to his Relationship Manager at the bank. When I learned of the incident, I was horrified of course. But I immediately approached the Manager and explained that it was my error which had triggered the client's anger. I…… [Read More]

I know whatever major I choose, my first priority is to help others and make a difference in their lives.

I feel I have a lot to offer to your university in my attitude, involvement, and dedication. I am a very sensitive person because of my sister and her condition. She has had many medical problems (including open-heart surgery, heart failure, and several battles with pneumonia). She is an inspiration to me, and my family rejoices in all of her successes. This has made me more open to others, and to understand those who are different, as well as those who fit in. I feel this will make me a better, more compassionate student and peer.

There are two courses presented that appear to be very interesting. The first is "special topics in accounting," which addresses ethical concerns. This is very important since accountants need to be ethical persons. The cut and thrust of business sometimes pressures individuals to engage in unethical practices. I believe that this course will assist in unearthing ethical challenges, thus keeping accountants honest. The second course is "current topics in auditing." Auditing is another facet of business that has held my interest, the cutting edge of the discipline will prepare me to engage firms from a very knowledgeable position.

In addition to the strong accounting program, Rutgers provides intellectual guidance for life. Life beyond Rutgers means that it is critical to be an independent thinker. This university fosters independent thinking. Where ever you go in life thinking about a situation from a fresh perspective is necessary. This type of approach is…… [Read More]

Euro Monetary Union the Admission

The eurozone package is politically more complicated. it's designed to show that 16 nations sharing the euro currency will stand united behind the debts of member nations to stave off a potential crisis of confidence that could damage them all." (Trumbull, 1)

This complexity is underscored by the inherently questionable imperatives of the European Monetary Union. Indeed, one of the core challenges of free trade, globalization and the establishment of intra-continental unions is the inherent difficulty in facing up the inherent incongruity of the aligning markets. The European Union has served as a prime example of this, matching a widely varied set of nations in a single economic pact. The result is that in many contexts, visible distinctions remain even as economic policy is set with the collective in consideration. These distinctions are not necessarily irreconcilable, but under the current structure of the European Monetary Union, they most certainly are.…… [Read More]

MBA Admission

Words: 3353 Length: 10 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 99300082

Talents aren't things developed. One is born with talent -- a natural propensity for accuracy and efficiency in particular tasks. A knack for a certain intellectual task. Skills, on the other hand, are things learned, practiced, and known; they're the result of schooling, training, and experience. I believe that skills can be thought of, in a sense, as the theory behind reality. In other words, skills are most appropriately consolidated and built upon one's talents, and one excels at his profession when he marries the two. Conversely, one is pushed into mediocrity when she doesn't use her skills to flex her talents.

I've done the opposite. Through my formal education and my three years of experience as a retail manager at T-Mobile after graduation, I've built my skills -- creating innovative solutions to traditional problems, strong leadership capabilities, and customer care -- upon my talent -- business intuition.

pursued my undergraduate degree in Accounting at the American University of Sharjah in the United Arab Emirates, I experienced a revelation: that success is within my reach, and if I can achieve prosperity despite the obstacles placed before me, then anyone with a blend of luck, desire, and character can do the same. Of course the luck aspect is what makes life unfair; the painful reality that no matter how hard some people work they will not have the necessary opportunities or innate talents necessary to achieve their dreams. This was an especially significant realization because of my unique global journey, and the fact that my brand of luck came from the most important person in my life -- my Mother.

Evidence Admission and Suppression

Admissibility of Evidence at Trial

If the goal for a trial is the search for justice, why should there be rules that limit a juror's ability to render a verdict only to that information gathered in compliance with the Constitution and approved by the judge?

Part of the search for justice is making sure that the evidence admitted at trial satisfies the constitutional criteria distinguishing admissible evidence from inadmissible evidence. In large part, the rules of evidence in a criminal trial are expressly designed to protect the constitutional rights of persons suspected of criminal activity by the police. If there were no such rules, it would be difficult if not impossible to control the ways that police secured evidence on the street. In fact, prior to the modern era of American criminal justice, police routinely arrested suspects without probable cause, deprived them of counsel, food, water, and bathroom facilities, and…… [Read More]

Working in the legal field requires much more than the basic knowledge acquired through books and class work.

Diversity Training

The school aims to recruit students that will balance the spectrum of diversity. Before this can be accomplished however, existing and future employees of the university will need to be prepared. "Diversity is about encouraging and enabling all employees to draw on their talents, skills, and experience for the benefit of the business." (Bruno, 2004) Schools that are diversity sensitive will more often be prepared for the competitive recruitment markets and thus attract higher potential students and employees. The school has implemented the necessary training that will bring the entire student recruitment process together.

No matter what the level of need, a good diversity training program will maintain the most important aspects of the school's initiative. Diversity training has been proven to reduce the potential for misunderstandings, conflict and litigation which is often related to basic differences in communications and expectations.

he standards were meant to provide access to the future successes of a UC-Davis education despite previous disadvantage, but were not without flaw.

In 1973 and the following year, Bakke applied to the medical school with a benchmark score of 468 out of 500. Each time he was rejected, as were all students in the regular applicant pool with a score below 470. Yet, four special admissions spots remained, and he was not considered to fill them. Bakke wrote a letter of complaint to the Chairman of the Admissions Committee, complaining about the program's admissions bias, but in 1974, his lowest review in committee was from the same chairman, who cited his opinions as too narrow minded for the UC-Davis standards. In both years, though, Bakke applied with a higher GPA and MCA score than his special admissions peers. Infuriated, he filed suit with the Superior Court of California seeking…… [Read More]

The decision went against the social flow of progressive American society, including that of the many of the Justices deciding the case. They understood that race was an issue that needed to be taken into consideration in admissions, but the unconstitutionality of the quotas could not be denied. Justice Powell stated that race could be used as a factor in admissions to mollify the social separation inherent in post-segregationist America, and he drew public attention to the Harvard College Admissions program which used race as part of "holistic review" of applicants. While he was in favor of the consideration of race but against the quotas at UC-Davis, the rest of the Justices were split firmly in half.

Since the case, the decision of the Court has affirmed Powell's approach to the admissions process and its treatment of race. In 2003, Grutter vs. Bollinger attacked the race processes used in admissions at the University of Michigan Law School, where Lee Bollinger, now the leader of Columbia University, presided over a process where race serves as a "predominant" factor of consideration. By establishing race as a point of "compelling interest," Bakke dealt directly with the problem of social hierarchy in the aftermath of the civil rights movement and segregation, and the ensuing concern with a modern reverse-prejudice, in a manner that remains relevant and valid thirty years later.

What are the different areas you would need to assess? List at least two questions you would ask to assess each area.

Suicide assessment begins with understanding the behavior of the patient. A patient may be acting in a way that causes the nurse to question the possibility of risk. Questions to ask might be: Is the behavior unusual for this person? Has their behavior changed drastically after a tragic event? (Mohr,, 743). Next the nurse needs to establish a therapeutic relationship that is built on trust. This relationship should have begun prior to the behavior change. Nurses should ask about family, talk honestly about issues that the patient wants to hear about, and try to seek a common ground that will help build rapport. If the patient is in crisis…… [Read More]

In looking at readmissions, there were only three patients that were re-admitted more than once. Everyone else admitted once and, at most, readmitted once. For the readmits, no single hospital seems to have a problem. One sidenote is that one of the readmits (patient 740019266) was readmitted once to Crouse and then twice more to St. Joseph's. The reason for each readmit for that same patient is actually different. Further, the overall reason for readmits varies greatly and is not defined by any primary or common causes except perhaps breathing/pain issues of many kinds.

A d) the theoretical approach to legal reasoning that casts the most helpful light on judicial reasoning in determining whether or not evidence derived from torture should be admissible is legal positivism, as developed by H.L.A. Hart. Hart's approach to legal positivism focused strongly on the relationship between the law and morality. One would be hard pressed to describe an area where the relationship between moral behavior and the law is more at issue than in a question involving torture. The question is especially salient when a country may not have any influence over interrogation procedures, such as when the United Kingdom is relying upon interrogations performed in other countries. However, Hart's rule of recognition articulates the point-of-view that social norms should not always be legal norms. There is no question that the prohibition against torture is a widespread social norm, as reflected by the common law, informal international law,…… [Read More]

The Keystone Effect of Data Integration in Healthcare Coordination

Implementation and evaluation of digital projects requires that both system factors and non-system factors be taken into consideration. Invariably, it is the non-system, human variables that present the most substantive challenges to communications and information management staff. The staff responsible for the information management technology supporting the Affordable Care Act foresaw and prepared for a variety of issues that could arise during system upgrades. As a result, most of the issues that could limit the capacity to fully report on the project were headed off. Yet, measurement depends on the availability of accurate, comprehensive, and timely data -- all factors vulnerable to the remaining issues.

The non-system human aspects of the healthcare program implementation and evaluation posed several challenges to the program designers and evaluators. Case management is optional for healthcare plan members, but participation is strongly encouraged as…… [Read More]

Integrity is a major issue for healthcare organizations because there are many avenues for fraud, and for people to demonstrate a lack of ethics. The problem is that the temptation is sometimes too great and despite the fact that there are laws in place to guard against these practices unethical behavior takes place anyway. The government, which supplies a lot of the money which goes for treatments through Medicare and Medicaid, has structured certain laws to make sure that the practices of healthcare organizations are ethical, but billions of dollars in fines are still doled out every year. The big drug companies complain of arcane and hard to decipher legalese, but the fact is that although they realize the issue and the penalty they continue to subvert the law.
