Question 1. Question :

A prediction equation for starting salaries (in $1,000s) and SAT scores was performed using simple linear regression. In the regression printout shown above, what can be said about the level of significance for the overall model?

Click here to view the printout in Excel.

SAT is not a good predictor for starting salary.

The significance level for the intercept indicates the model is not valid.

The significance level for SAT indicates the slope is equal to zero.

The significance level for SAT indicates the slope is not equal to zero.

None of the above can be said about the level of significance.

Question 2. Question :

A large school district is reevaluating its teachers’ salaries. They have decided to use regression analysis to predict mean teachers’ salaries at each elementary school. The researcher uses years of experience to predict salary. The resulting regression equation was:

Y = 23,313.22 + 1,210.89X, where Y = salary, X = years of experience

Assume a teacher has five years of experience. What is the forecasted salary?

$29,337.22

$29,337.67

$29,367.22

$29,367.67

Question 3. Question :

Which of the following statements is false concerning the hypothesis testing procedure for a regression model?

The F-test statistic is used.

The null hypothesis is that the true slope coefficient is equal to zero.

The null hypothesis is rejected if the adjusted r2 is above the critical value

An ? level must be selected.

The alternative hypothesis is that the true slope coefficient is not equal to zero.

Question 4. Question :

A scatter diagram is useful to determine if a relationship exists between two variables.

True

False

Question 5. Question :

An air conditioning and heating repair firm conducted a study to determine if the average outside temperature, thickness of the insulation, and age of the heating equipment could be used to predict the electric bill for a home during the winter months in Houston, Texas. The resulting regression equation was:

Y = 256.89 – 1.45X1 – 11.26X2 + 6.10X3, where Y = monthly cost, X1 = average temperature, X2 = insulation thickness, and X3 = age of heating equipment

Assume December has an average temperature of 45 degrees and the heater is 2 years old with insulation that is 6 inches thick.

What is the forecasted monthly electric bill?

$111.88

$127.72

$136.28

$205.72

Question 6. Question :

Demand for soccer balls at a new sporting goods store is forecasted using the following regression equation: Y = 98 + 2.2X where X is the number of months that the store has been in existence. Let April be represented by X = 4. April is assumed to have a seasonality index of 1.15. What is the forecast for soccer ball demand for the month of April (rounded to the nearest integer)?

CBT VS. Existential-Humanistic Therapy

AH is a 39-year-old African American female who lives with her husband and four children. Her children’s ages are 16, 11, 5, and 7 months old. She has been diagnosed with major depressive disorder and Post-traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD). The client had a two-week-old son that died from Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) two years ago. The client’s symptomology includes tearful episodes, anxiety, nightmares, flashbacks, depression, hopelessness, decreased concentration, and poor sleep.  The client is taking Cognitive behavioral therapy and as the provider thinking about starting extrinsic -humanistic treatment. Cognitive-behavioral therapy has been proven by research to help clients with PTSD (Center for Substance Abuse Treatment, 2019). This paper will explore the strengths and challenges of CBT and existential-humanistic therapy for a client with PTSD, anxiety, and depression.
Cognitive-behavioral therapy is a first-line treatment choice for clients with depression. CBT has a tone of evidence-based practice for treating a wide variety of mental health disorders. Cognitive-behavioral therapy focuses on changing the client’s attitudes and behavior to change behaviors, ultimately, attitudes toward self, and improve emotional reaction. CBT is a broader therapy and offers the client coping skills to deal with life events. Existential-humanistic treatment is a more focused therapy that focuses the clients on self-awareness and individual goal (Center for Substance Abuse Treatment, 2019)s. This type of therapy does not focus on the disease but decreases symptoms by increasing the client’s self-worth.
Both therapy options would be great for AH. I would use CBT first to reduce symptoms of depression, anxiety, and nightmares. Existential-humanistic therapy would be offered later to increase the client’s self-worth. As a provider, it is essential to understand when to introduce new treatment. According to Wheeler (2014), the humanistic-existential approach has long served as a foundation for psychiatric nursing, emphasizing self-actualization, facilitative communication, and the therapeutic relationship (Center for Substance Abuse Treatment, 2019). Existential-humanistic therapy can be beneficial when a  therapeutic relationship is and the idea that achieving wellness is a process (Center for Substance Abuse Treatment, 2019).

Evidence translation begins with the identification of a problem or concern. Reflect upon the eight national practice problems presented in the Global Burden of Disease Research. Select one of the practice problems to address the following.

1- From a global/nationwide perspective, how does the selected practice problem impact nurses, nursing care, healthcare organizations, and the quality of care being provided?

2- Identify the national level key stakeholders who are affected by the practice problem and stakeholders involved in resolution.

3-Are clinical practice guidelines used to address this problem? Why or why not? If used, provide a brief overview of the CPG. If a CPG is not used, propose an intervention that could be implemented on a national scale to address the problem.

Week 2: Project Scope and Charter

R631 W2 Project Scope and Charter Guidelines and Rubric

NR631 W2 Project Charter Appendix

NR631 W2 Scope Statement Appendix

Purpose

This assignment is designed to help students lay the groundwork for their project plans with the help of mentors and professors. The mentor becomes a team member for the project that the student will manage. The student will identify the stakeholders, the project priority, how the measurable goals will be met for a successful project, and who will receive the report of the results of the project. The scope document describes the parameters of the project, including what can and cannot be accomplished and the measurable objectives and outcome measures. The project charter describes and defines the project. When the sponsor signs off on the project, it becomes the document that authorizes the project.

Week 2, you will complete the project scope and charter. Based on the information from the mentor and professor, each student finalizes and completes the project charter and scope documents or statements. The project scope must be approved by your practicum organization. Your mentor should help you obtain approval. Project approval must be received prior to submitting these documents. Appendices are provided for both of these documents above.

Course Outcomes

This assignment enables the student to meet the following Course Outcomes (COs):

CO 1: Apply leadership skills concepts of project management as a nurse executive in an organizational setting to develop, implement and evaluate successful project plans. (PO 4,5)

CO 2: Using current knowledge, standards of practice, and research from evidence-based literature, synthesize a foundation for the nurse executive role. (PO 3,4)

Due Date: Sunday at 11:59 p.m. MT at the end of Week 2

Students are given the opportunity to request an extension on assignments for emergent situations. Supporting documentation must be submitted to the assigned faculty. If the student’s request is not approved, the assignment is graded and a late penalty is applied as follows:
