The second is the methods of work that must follow a quality certified system.

Overall System Design

The personnel must be trained in the use and proper management of digital forensic laboratories and high technology crime detection and investigation.

Professional Counseling

The relevance of counseling as a helping profession cannot be overstated. This is more so the case taking into consideration the role counseling plays towards the facilitation of the development of not only an individual but also a family or even a group.

Counseling as a Distinct Profession: The History and Philosophy of the Profession

Marini and Stebnicki (2008) point out that although counseling as a term made its first appearance (in print) sometimes in the year 1931, the practice of the same had started earlier on. It is important to note that although the roots of counseling as a helping relationship can be traced to the early omanian and Greek times, the actual development of the counseling profession as we know it today largely started taking place in the late 1800s. In the words of Marini and Stebnicki (2008), "the origins of the counseling profession in the…… [Read More]

"

As it applies specifically to the ISO 9001:2008 which replaced the ISO9002: 1994, the ISO 9001 concerns itself with quality management. In fact it is a quality management system that establishes various requirements ("ISO 9001:2008"). In order to gain certification the organization must:

1. Demonstrate its capacity to consistently offer product that meets customer and applicable statutory and regulatory requirements ("ISO 9001:2008").

2. Plan to improve customer satisfaction through the effective application of the system ("ISO 9001:2008"). This plan will include procedures that enforce continual improvement of the system and the pledge of conformity to customer and proper statutory and regulatory requirements ("ISO 9001:2008").

NP "role" definition

A nurse practitioner is any independent certified nursing care provider who offers primary, specialty, or both primary and specialty, nursing services in long-term, ambulatory and acute care settings.

Union Labor Disputes Canada Wal-Mart

Words: 6077 Length: 20 Pages Document Type: Term Paper Paper #: 74391495

But when it just recently occurred in 2004 at a store in Jonquiere, British Columbia, the reader must appreciate that a real battle had been won. The original efforts of that particular store for example had the local labor Commission reject certification by a margin of 74 to 65. When the union announced that it won the coveted certification at Quebec, it was quite a blow to the retailer. The Quebec Labour elations Commission issued the order certifying the United Food and Commercial Workers Union (UFCW) as the bargaining agent of employees in Wal-Mart's store in Jonquiere. As noted, the reason a victory of this magnitude is huge is because of the policies and tactics used by Wal-Mart. The retailer works diligently to prevent its workforce from engaging in any collective action and they have consistently shown that they are willing to cross the line to guarantee their position.

This particular system has been quite advantageous for Dell and other companies. However, all supply chain management systems can be improved. One of the changes that can be made is an increase in the options that are available to consumers. Increasing such options will increase customer satisfaction and lead to greater customer loyalty. In addition this improvement can lead to an even greater competitive advantage for the company.

Firefighter Employment Scenario

Although it's not clear in the story whether an Associates Degree is a precondition for taking the exam, it should not necessarily be an absolute precondition for taking the exam. I personally believe education and experience are absolutely necessary before attempting to take the exam for certification, but that may not always be limited only to an Associate's Degree. There are a number of education programs in fire academies that often can serve as a good alternative for an Associate's Degree. Other types of certification, experience, or educational programs are out there that can help potential candidates succeed in their certification and beyond. Therefore, there must be requirements for various types of education and experience levels that are more fluid, allowing for judgment on individual cases rather than blindly across the board. This would mean that an Associate's Degree would not always be absolutely necessary as a…… [Read More]

The study had the established goal of making clear the practical applicability of the academic learning in family and consumer sciences, and the necessity of community involvement for students in these programs and other human science specializations, as well as for families who put family and consumer sciences to use every day (Leach 1998). As my specialization is family studies, much of the research and findings of this study are directly applicable to my own planned career in family and consumer sciences.

Interestingly enough, new research shows that there are some micro-factors outside of growth that correlate to value and leverage. These include the way a corporation is managed, the size of the Board, the impression of large dividends and lack of focus on shareholder value, and milking of an industry (e.g. yellow pages in the day of the Internet). In addition, certain governmental regulations that are perceived as heavy handed and/or not conducive to growth or -- what is most critical -- perceived growth have considerable negative effects on leverage.

Nationally, it ranges from the mid-thirty-thousand dollar range to more than twice that amount with a national average of approximately $46,000 (BLS, 2008). Naturally, the highest salaries are available to paralegals and legal assistants who have achieved professional certifications, since there are only approximately 15,000 certified paralegals out of more than one quarter million professionals in the field (BLS, 2008). Additional vocational benefits are similar to other fulltime professional positions in the private sector or in government positions, as the case may be.

Organizational Performance Can Be Measured in Terms

Words: 1345 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 39382178

Organizational performance can be measured in terms of financial, output metrics, or market share performance. An organization is considered to achieve high performance if it is able to demonstrate growth in its all aspects of organizational performance metrics. The three key criteria to measure organizational performances in all industries are as follows:

Financial performance (profits, return on assets)

Product and market performances (sales, market share)

Shareholder returns (total shareholder return, economic value added)

An organization is generally able to claim a healthy financial performance if its annual net profits continuously increase or if the company reaches its own internal financial targets. Product and market performances are measured when organizations can claim a significant share of the total volume of sales in the market. It is generally thought that with the production of high quality goods or services, organizations will be able to achieve their desired market performances (Richard 2009). For…… [Read More]

Words: 1303 Length: 4 Pages Document Type: Essay Paper #: 71275396

Sustainability Process in the Design of Construction of Sports Venues

In the United States, the construction and operation of sports stadiums create certain numbers of environmental problems. The construction projects including the sports projects consume 60% of the U.S. raw materials yearly. Moreover, the physical facilities in the United States consume 14% of the country's potable water, responsible for 38% of CO2 emissions, 30% of waste output, and 72% of electricity consumption. In most cases, construction of sports projects fails to integrate sustainable protocols in their design strategies during and after the constructions leading to the environmental degradations. Many products used to construct the facilities exteriors and interiors after or during the construction affect the environment negatively. Over the years, the U.S. government introduces series of legislations such as the Clean Water Act (CWA) and Clean Air Act (CAA) mandating the sport events stakeholders to integrate sustainability into the design…… [Read More]

A principal, for instance, will advertise on Ed Join for, say, a third grade, second grade or whatever opening he or she has, screen and hire the candidates, and then notify Personnel.

At the io Linda Union School District, job candidates still bring in their applications in person. They bring portfolios to interviews. Not nearly as much is done online, in the screening and hiring processes, as it is at within other districts nowadays. The io Linda Union School District's still-centralized hiring, according to Barker, allows for greater consistency in hiring. Barker also added, however, that unlike in the past, she now considers it best for principals to select their own new hires from a pool of recently hired candidates, in order to best meet the needs of, and have the best fit with, that principal's own school. This, Barker said, is because unlike in the past, schools today must…… [Read More]

Attract and retain top nursing talent -- organizations that have achieved magnet status tend to have far less turnover than those who do not. The research postulates that this is due to several factors, among which the nurses' ability to actively participate in the organization and higher than average job satisfaction scores (Jones and Gates, 2007).

Improve patient care, safety, and customer satisfaction -- Because nurses are happier, have more advanced training, and are allowed to robustly participate in the organization's operations, patient care is improved, there is a higher nurse to patient ratio, greater emphasis on avocation and safety, and higher customer satisfaction numbers with an increase in quality (Hines and Yu, 2009).

The management accounting leads candidates into finance, risk management and even production management. hile CMA certification is not necessary to pursue a career in management accounting, it is recommended. The IMA claims that certified management accountants earn on average $25,000 more per year than non-certified peers (IMA, 2011).

As with the accounting profession in general, there is increased demand for management accountants. CMAs are in demand because of their ability to contribute to the profitability of businesses, and demand for CMAs is expected to grow in coming years. Because CMA job duties are less structured than those of financial accountants or auditors, CMAs enjoy greater career flexibility.

Both types of accounting positions are poised to enjoy significant growth. There is also a trend in business, particularly since Sarbanes-Oxley, of looking to accounting professionals to lead firms.

In order to come to the decision that this would be the best way to address a workforce education program at Edison College, though, there were many things that had to be considered. A panel of experts was formed to study the impact that this program could have, how it would work and be used, and whether there would be instructors available and students interested in it. If these things would not all come together, there was little point in trying to continue with the program. The experts talked with people in the community, took surveys of existing students, and talked with Habitat for Humanity and other organizations. They also implemented a DACUM process through which the panel of experts was located and the study into whether the workforce education program in construction would be beneficial was carried out. What type of licensing was needed for the instructors was addressed…… [Read More]

Characteristics of an Effective Nurse Administrator

Words: 882 Length: 3 Pages Document Type: Research Paper Paper #: 79495050

Introduction

A philosophy of caring and compassion is necessary but not sufficient for effective nurse administration. Nurse administrators assume additional duties and responsibilities when they manage health care facilities. In addition to understanding the regulations affecting day to day operations, nurse administrators need to have a firm command of financial management and human resources management expertise. Nurse administrators also need to know about how to form strategic alliances with partners in the community, government, and private sector. Essentially, nurse administrators tend to be relatively far removed from the job of actual nursing and provision of care, while also keeping in mind the need for patient-centric policies. Strong communication skills, organizational and coordination skills, leadership skills, and of course, strategic management skills are among the core characteristics of an effective nurse administrator.

I brought different materials, and worked with the student once a week in preparation for a state examination. Not only was I able to help the student improve academically at the end of the lessons, but also I impacted him on a personal level. The eighth grader did not spend all of our time together speaking about academics, but also brought personal problems to me for assessment. He said that he struggled with being organized, and also confessed to being bullied. I advised the student to stop procrastinating and confront the bully verbally without anger.

CPA Interview

I interviewed John Perez who is a recent graduate of Florida International University. John obtained his CPA designation shortly after graduation in 2009. He currently works for Macy's Inc., in Cincinnati, Ohio as a corporate accountant. He has been working in this capacity for the past 8 months and cites his CPA designation as a catalyst for obtaining his career with Macys.

How has having a CPA certification or consulting with a CPA helped you do your job?

Summary answer: John's job is predicated on trust. This is particularly true in the midst of the economic slowdown and the European debt crisis that has gripped world markets and businesses. John indicated in the interview that the economic uncertainty has many companies worried about the future economics of their respective industries.

U.S. v AOL:

AOL case was a lawsuit involving collusion between the executives from AOL and PurchasePro Inc. (PPO) with the sole intention of overstating revenue. The 37% overstated revenue would make executives to believe that PurchasePro Inc. had achieved its sales forecasts, which would in turn contribute to inflation of the company's stock price. Due to their contributions, some of the executives involved in this illegal agreement and fraud would obtain large bonuses and the company's stocks. However, the jury in the case acquitted the three defendants in the much publicized five-year investigation into fraudulent accounting practices between AOL and PurchasePro. Notably, the case offers an example of criminal offenses conducted through the use of computers and necessitates the use of computer forensic tools and procedures in order to resolve.

Medication Errors

One of the major challenges impact healthcare providers is medical errors. These issues are challenging, as they will have an adverse impact on quality and safety. In the case of the ICU, these challenges are becoming more pronounced. This is because of the different conditions and large number of patients they are working with. A good example of this can be seen with insights from Orgeas (2010) who said, "Although intensive care units (ICUs) were created for patients with life-threatening illnesses, the ICU environment generates a high risk of iatrogenic events. Identifying medical errors (MEs) that serve as indicators for iatrogenic risk is crucial for purposes of reporting and prevention. We describe the selection of indicator MEs, the incidence of such MEs, and their relationship with mortality. We selected indicator MEs using Delphi techniques. An observational prospective multicenter cohort study of these MEs was conducted from March 27…… [Read More]

A project is a temporary group endeavor, with an agreed beginning and duration time frame, organized to produce a unique product, service or result. (PMI 2011) A distinguishing characteristic of a project is that it is progressively detailed as the project is better understood by the people working on it. Another characteristic of a project is that it is not a routine operation, although a project may be assembled for the purpose of establishing the procedures that ultimately become routines. Owing to the temporary nature of projects, managers, team members and specialists are assembled for a stated period of time; they often have never worked together before as most of the team members are drawn from regular operating units.

Actions Lawsuits in Employment Sex-Discrimination Lawsuits: When are they Appropriate?

The class action lawsuit is a somewhat controversial tool, particularly in the case of employment discrimination. In many ways, it is a hallmark of judicial efficiency. After all, if a number of plaintiffs have the same claim against a defendant, it is inefficient to try the same case a number of times. Moreover, later plaintiffs may be unable to recover if earlier plaintiffs exhaust a defendant's financial resources. Therefore, if a company has an employment policy that is facially discriminatory, or has a readily-provable and consistent disparate impact, class-action litigation can be appropriate. However, in many ways the class actions lawsuit is not well-suited for employment discrimination lawsuits. Employment discrimination, particularly gender-based employment discrimination, is frequently subtle and a finding of discrimination is not going to be based on company policies, but on the treatment of a particular individual. Moreover,…… [Read More]

Business organizations operate with the sole objective of effectively utilizing the input factors in order to maximize on the output. For this case, output is measured in terms of performance, which, essentially relates to the profits or customer satisfaction. In the industrial age, most managers relied heavily on conventional financial metrics as the only strategic measure to align the activities of the organization to the goals and objectives of the same organization. However, this perspective has gradually shifted in the information age.

A strategic plan for a nurse educator

At present, I would say that my greatest strength as a nurse educator is my willingness to challenge myself in the pursuit of excellence. Within the next year, I will obtain my MSN with a specific concentration in education. Previously, I obtained certification as a Basic Life Support instructor (BLS).
