Mark Ilescu is a 44-year-old client who has been diagnosed with primary hypertension. His medical history includes type 1 diabetes mellitus, with early signs of nephropathy. He had a myocardial infarction 2 years ago and has been treated with a beta-blocker, metoprolol, since that time. He has been taking hydrochlorothiazide in addition to the beta-blocker to treat his hypertension. His blood pressure today is 138/92 mm Hg, which is consistent with the readings on his last three visits. His physician has added captopril to his treatment regimen. (Learning Objectives 2, 4, 8, and 9)
1. Mark states that he does not understand why he needs an additional medication considering his blood pressure is below 140 mm Hg systolic. How should the nurse respond?
2. Discuss the rationale for choosing captopril in Mark’s case.
3. What should the nurse include in teaching Mark in order to minimize adverse effects of the captopril and metoprolol?
In this informal reflective journal entry, you have an opportunity to consider your hopes for your learning in this course and engage in initial brainstorming for your assignments. Reflection is the necessary bridge in the learning process that takes place when you are involved in a learning experience.
To prepare, you should use this reflection activity to brainstorm your ideas for next week’s assignment, make connections to previous work completed in the course, and analyze how you might apply what you learn to your personal and/or professional life. As a reminder, in your assignment for next week, you will create a presentation proposal regarding an ongoing problem and solution(s) relevant to the location you chose in your Week 5 Assignment. Please address the following as you craft your response:
Based on your research on your location, what is an important ongoing problem you’d like to address in your presentation proposal?
What connections to what you’ve already learned in the course do you plan to explore as you complete your Week 10 Assignment next week?
How could you apply what you’ve learned so far in this course to your personal and/or professional life?

This week you have been reading in your text about “Growth Management: Smart Growth, Sustainable Development, and Planning for Catastrophe.” For this assignment, you will continue to focus on the location you chose for your Week 5 Assignment. But now you are going to dive deeper into the community, its needs, and the social justice issues prevalent there, all of which are important in growth, sustainability, and planning for the future.
Step 1: Revisit the location you focused on in your Week 5 PESTEL analysis.
Step 2: Use data from a minimum of 3 of the following resources to demonstrate an understanding of community growth, societal issues, and urban planning. Use the following sites to research the location:
CensusLinks to an external site.

It helps the government decide how to distribute funds and assistance to states and localities.
Census Quick FactsLinks to an external site.
QuickFacts provides statistics, demographics, socio-economic data, maps, and environmental data for all states and counties and for cities and towns with a population of 5,000 or more.
Data.govLinks to an external site.
On this site you will find data on specific community populations including important social justice issues.
SEDACLinks to an external site.
“SEDAC, the Socioeconomic Data and Applications Center, is one of the Distributed Active Archive Centers (DAACs) in the Earth Observing System Data and Information System (EOSDIS) of the U.S. National Aeronautics and Space Administration” (SEDAC, 2023).

Step 4: Include references to the three resources you chose above as well as any outside resources you used to research your location.
Step 5: Upload your completed Word document to Canvas.
The specific course learning outcome associated with this assignment is:
Assess the diverse nature of urban populations and the social justice issues many of these populations face.
Based on the topics presented in this week’s readings, or another topic of your choice, select a global issue you would like to focus on for the Week 10 assignment. Review the Week 10 assignment instructions in the course guide, as well as Chapter 9, “Policy Analysis,” from Teaching Research Methods in Public Administration. Then in this discussion, post the following:
Your draft policy analysis question.
Two sources you may use in your literature review.
Summaries of at least two policy options you have discovered through your reading and research.
Your grant application is nearly done! There’s just one more piece you’ll need to complete for the application process to be complete.
In addition to laying out all of the goals and objectives, you’ll need to show the funders how you plan to measure whether or not those goals and objectives are being met. This is all part of the grant management that will take place after you receive a grant.
Your job now is to determine how you will evaluate the success of the program. You will need to create a document that considers the following questions:
What questions will the organization’s evaluation activities seek to answer?
What are the evaluation plans and time frames?
What kinds of data will be collected?
At what points?
Using what strategies or instruments?
Using what comparison group or baseline, if any?
If the intention is to study a sample of participants, how will this sample be selected?
What procedures will be used to determine whether the program was implemented as planned?
Who will conduct the evaluation?
Who will receive the results?
How does this program or project define success?
Create a 2-3 page document that answers each of the questions at a high level. This document should be written in such a way that it can be shared across the Resource Center as well as with volunteers and partners in the program so they can understand how the program will be evaluated throughout the grant cycle. While you want the information to be clear and specific, it’s not necessary to go into great detail. It should be easily understood by all.
The specific course learning outcome associated with this assignment is:
Review the grant management cycle.
