A little background: As you have learned, Criminal Justice is a system comprised of police, courts and corrections.  As such, decisions made by one person/group of people in one part of the system affects the others. It is important to understand the various components of the system to be able to analyze the impact that their interactions and inter- relatedness have on the administration of justice. The study of Criminal Justice involves cumulative learning and thought. At this point, you have learned about the different systems and now it is time to apply what you have learned!

Directions:  For this assignment you are to reflect upon the course material that you read. Please answer each of the following questions as thoroughly as possible and be sure to back up your answers with scholarly resources. 

  1. What are the main components of the Criminal Justice system?
  2. How are these components interrelated?
  3. How might these components conflict?
  4. Based off of your answers in questions 1-3; describe the steps of the criminal justice process and the role that each component plays within each step.  Specifically describe the decision making points that influence the next step in the process. (hint: be sure to look at the chart of the steps of Criminal justice contained in the week 1 readings).
  5. In your opinion, how does the interrelatedness and interactions between the components affect the administration of justice?

In preparation for writing your report to senior management next week, conduct the following descriptive statistics analyses with Microsoft Excel. Answer the questions below in your Microsoft Excel sheet or in a separate Microsoft Word document:

  • Insert a new column in the database that corresponds to Annual Sales. Annual Sales is the result of multiplying a restaurants SqFt. by Sales/SqFt.
  • Calculate the mean, standard deviation, skew, 5-number summary, and interquartile range (IQR) for each of the variables.
  • Create a box-plot for the Annual Sales variable. Does it look symmetric? Would you prefer the IQR instead of the standard deviation to describe this variables dispersion? Why?
  • Create a histogram for the Sales/SqFt variable. Is the distribution symmetric? If not, what is the skew? Are there any outliers? If so, which one(s)? What is the SqFt area of the outlier(s)? Is the outlier(s) smaller or larger than the average restaurant in the database? What can you conclude from this observation?
  • What measure of central tendency is more appropriate to describe Sales/SqFt? Why?

Discussion – Week 10

            Deciding to go back to school to obtain my masters degree in nursing was a big decision for me. I truly love my job working bedside as an ICU nurse, but I know that it is not something I want to do long-term. My passion has always been in preventative care, helping people make healthy choices and manage their health before problems reach a point of needed advanced care. As I weighed my current job satisfaction against my goals for the future, I finally decided that it was time to advance my career. I thought that would be the hardest part it wasnt.

            Knowing I was going back to school, the next challenge became determining what I wanted to specialize in. There are so many opportunities for APRNs, and even with a specific goal in mind there are still many ways to reach it. I was fortunate enough to know what school I wanted to go to already, based on a friends great reviews of it, but I still had multiple programs to choose from (Walden, n.d.). Weighing the pros and cons of each program, I had to really think about what I waned to do with my career and how each option would affect my future possibilities. I knew that my priority was my family, finding a way to balance my working hours with my household. This helped me eliminate the acute care options right away. Pediatrics has never been a primary interest of mine, so that helped further narrow things down. With much consideration, my choices were narrowed to adult/gero primary care, FNP, or psych.

            I had to weigh how practical each of these specialties would be for me throughout my career. One of my goals with my family is to move overseas, with the plan of working in telehealth for a US company. Nurse practitioners are not recognized in most countries, so I would need security in my speciality and plenty of options for telehealth work (ThriveAP, 2018). This led me to my final round of decisions: FNP or psych. Both have great options for telehealth, and I feel secure in knowing that I will always be able to find plenty of jobs in either of these fields. I had a lot of pressure from a friend to choose psych, he reasoned that it pays better and I could always go back to get my FNP later on. However, as I said before, preventative care is my passion and ties in perfectly with my previous bachelors in public health. FNPs work with their patients through their entire life, guiding them in the best health choices and forming true relationships and understandings with them (AANP, n.d.b). While it may not pay as well as other specialities, it is something I know I will always have an interest and opportunity in, and a career that I am confident will make me happy in the long-run.

            Starting this journey to becoming a nurse practitioner, the organization that stands out to me is the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP). With a mission of empowering all NPs and promoting their practice, I believe they will provide me quite a few resources as I advance through my career (AANP, n.d.a). I want to stay relevant in my education and learn more about nursing policy and advocacy, and this organization will give me a great starting point for that. Having a group of like-minded peers will be invaluable as I progress in healthcare. In order to become a part of this organization, it is as simple as signing up. They offer different membership levels, so as I complete my program and start working I will be able to choose the membership best suited to my needs. Through the entirety of my career and beyond, the AANP will serve as a valuable resource for me.

                                                                                                      Family Nurse Practitioner Specialty

My choice of nursing specialty within Walden’s MSN program is Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP). An FNP specializes in patients’ primary and specialty care across all the lifespans. FNPs focus on preventative care and monitoring/treating long-term health issues (Johnson & Johnson Nursing, n.d.).

                                                                                                                         Decision Making

I didn’t have any difficulties making this choice as I knew that before I became a nurse, I wanted to become an FNP. As I became a more seasoned nurse with experience working with older adults, I knew I didn’t want to limit myself to the senior population. Therefore I knew I didn’t want to become an Adult-Gerontology Primary Care Nurse Practitioner. As I continued working as a nurse, I also knew I didn’t want to work in an inpatient setting for the rest of my career. I’m most interested in working in an outpatient environment where the hours and schedules are more regular than in a hospital. Therefore I knew I didn’t want to become an Acute Care Nurse Practitioner. Through this process of elimination, I knew that the FNP route would give me the most versatile option of working with both children and adults in any healthcare setting. Recently I’ve been more interested in the dermatology and cosmetic surgery field of nursing. I aspire to specialize as a Cosmetic Surgery/Dermatology NP eventually.

                                                                                                             Nurse Practitioner Organizations

As an APRN, it’s essential to become a member of a professional nursing organization. One benefit to joining a nursing organization is to become an advocate for the nursing community and profession. Nursing organizations can also provide opportunities for professional development, networking, career growth, and mentorship (Echevarria, 2018). Some organizations offer different options that others do not; therefore, it’s essential to consider one’s specialization and weigh the costs and benefits before joining (Echevarria, 2018). One organization I could consider joining once I obtain my FNP is the Society of Dermatology Nurse Practitioners (SDNP). This particular organization would be ideal because one of its benefits is that they serve dermatology NPs solely. Like many other organizations, the SDNP offers educational webinars and symposiums, opportunities for fellow dermatology NPs to network, and volunteer opportunities (SDNP, n.d.). The SDNP provides a variety of memberships: active member, fellow active member, student member, and introductory corporate member. As a student, I could become a student member, which requires a $100 fee, and I must be working towards becoming a Dermatology NP (SDNP, n.d.). Once I have my license, I could become an active member or a fellow active member. An active member requires a $135 membership fee and focuses on someone who has a strong emphasis in dermatology but is not certified or the main focus of work. An active fellow member requires a $135 membership fee and is an individual who is a certified Dermatology NP and practices full or part-time (SDNP, n.d.).

ARK Encounter 7th & 8th grade – mathematically

You have been tasked with finding the cost of replacing all the exterior

boards on the ark and waterproofing the outside of it. The replacement

boards will be sixteen feet long and ten inches wide. The boards will have

no spacing between them. The boards will be attached using nails. Each

board will have three nails on each end and two nails every twenty-four

inches. After the boards are attached, the entire exterior of the ark will be

sealed with waterproofing. For computing purposes, consider the shape of

the ark as a rectangular prism. You will be replacing boards on five of the

six sides of the rectangular prism. The dimensions of the ark are according

to Genesis 6:15 300 cubits by 50 cubits by 30 cubits (450 feet long by 75

feet wide by 45 feet tall.) Prices are listed in the table below.





10 inches x16 feet

Covers 60 square feet
