Addictive disorders can be particularly challenging for clients. Not only do these disorders typically interfere with a client’s ability to function in daily life, but they also often manifest as negative and sometimes criminal behaviors. Sometime clients with addictive disorders also suffer from other mental health issues, creating even greater struggles for them to overcome. In your role, you have the opportunity to help clients address their addictions and improve outcomes for both the clients and their families.

National Organization Of Nurse Practitioner Faculties (NONPF) Competencies

The National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculties (NONPF) has determined nine broad areas of core competence that apply to all nurse practitioners, regardless of specialty or patient population focus. NONPF created the first set of Nurse Practitioner Competencies in 1990; the most recent updates were incorporated in 2017. This course was designed to prepare you to synthesize knowledge gained throughout the program and to apply each of the nine core competencies within your selected areas of practice and your representative communities.

The nine areas of competency are:

  • Scientific Foundations
  • Leadership
  • Quality
  • Practice Inquiry
  • Technology and Information Literacy
  • Policy
  • Health Delivery System
  • Ethics
  • Independent Practice

To Prepare

  • Review this week’s Learning Resources, focusing on the NONPF Core Competencies Content.

The Assignment

For each of the nine NONPF competencies, write one paragraph explaining how the program has prepared you to meet the competency (for a total of at least nine paragraphs). Then, propose how you plan to engage in social change in your community as a nurse practitioner. Finally, describe 1–2 legislative and/or advocacy activities in which your state nurse practitioner organization(s) are involved. Be specific and provide examples.

Using the midpoints formula presented in the textbook, calculate the price elasticity coefficient for each price level, starting with the coefficient for the $4 to $6 level. For each coefficient, indicate each type of elasticity: elastic demand, inelastic demand, or unitary demand. Post your answers into the table,

Over the last year your boss has noticed that it would be useful for your firm to understand how consumers behave when variables in the market change and how these changes affect the total revenue for your product. You have been asked to do an analysis for your product, Good A, by addressing the following questions and reporting the results to your boss in a formal paper.

Questions:

  1. Define the price elasticity of demand? What information does it provide? How is it calculated?
  2. Define the income elasticity of demand? What information does it provide? How is it calculated?
  3. Define the cross-price elasticity of demand? What information does it provide? How is it calculated?
  4. What is total revenue? How is it calculated?
  5. Define elastic, inelastic, and unitary elasticity means. How are these related to total revenue? Explain your answers.
  6. With respect to the price elasticity of demand, construct a graph using the data in Figure1. Illustrate the ranges on the demand curve that indicate elastic, inelastic, and unitary elasticity. Explain your answers. Enter non-numerical responses in the same worksheet using textboxes.
  7. Calculate the total revenue for each level of demand and post into the table, Figure 1. (Copy and paste this table into the Microsoft Word document that will form part of your submission.)
  8. Using the midpoints formula presented in the textbook, calculate the price elasticity coefficient for each price level, starting with the coefficient for the $4 to $6 level.

Present valuing the Net Cash Flow excluding those Cap Ex. This calculation will include Cap. Ex. For years 3-6 as they are part of the normal operation of the gates and are unrelated to the purchase price. 3. Use the Black-Scholes Option Pricing formula to come up with option’s priceassuming a 1-year maturity and a 20% price volatility for gate prices.

Risk Analysis, Real Options, and Capital Budgeting

1. Real Options

A. JTM is looking to buy gates at their home airport. Its discount rate is 7%; the risk free rate is 2.5%. What is the NPV of the purchase if bought today? Use the data in the template and note that the terminal value is as of the end of year 6.

B. After you do part A, you remember back to the concept of real options, which means that JTM can make dynamic changes as time passes:

1. Present valuing the purchase price of the gates (that is, the years 1 and 2 Capital Expenditures) separately using the risk-free rate because once JTM decides to go with the purchase there is no risk.

2. Present valuing the Net Cash Flow excluding those Cap Ex. This calculation will include Cap. Ex. For years 3-6 as they are part of the normal operation of the gates and are unrelated to the purchase price. 3. Use the Black-Scholes Option Pricing formula to come up with option’s priceassuming a 1-year maturity and a 20% price volatility for gate prices.

4. Compare the price of the call option with the NPV in the No Real Options scenario. Is the option worth it?

2. Decision Tree

JTM really liked your work on the option pricing of the gates, so they ask you to look at their 3-phase expansion at their home airport. The three phases are:

a. Upon purchase of the new gates, start a marketing program to promote JTM’s routes to the East Coast, West Coast, and the Caribbean. If all goes well and the market is receptive, they will go on to phase 2.

b. Phase 2 has JTM invest in new routes to the destinations listed. If at any time, JTM finds that this is not going to work, they will pull the plug on everything.

c. Phase 3 has JTM start the new routes to the destinations listed. If things don’t go well on any of the three destinations, they will pull the plug on everything.

d. After much work with other departments, you generate enough data to calculate the NPV of the 3-phase expansion. Before you have a chance to save all your work, there is a power spike and you lose part of your work. You have to complete it for a presentation. Please use the Excel template provided to complete this

3. Read Why the Mets Pay Bobby Bonilla $1.19 Million Every July 1

a. Use July 1, 2011, to calculate the future value of the $5.9M owed on July 1, 2000

b. Use July 1, 2011, to calculate the present value of the 25 yearly payments of $1,193,248.20. The first payment is made on July 1, 2011

c. Should Bobby take it? Why?

4. You are looking to lease a car and the dealer offers you: Car price = $30,000 Monthly payments = $499 Down payment = $2,000 Lease term = 48 months Purchase price at end of lease = $12,000 What is the implicit interest rate on the lease?

5. The Airbus A220 has the following R&D costs (all negative cash flows):

€600M (year 1)  €500M (year 2)  €400M (year 3)

Each plane will be sold for €50M – 25% down and the rest due on delivery one year later. The cost to produce each plane is €44M – these costs are recognized on delivery. Sales says that you will sell 30 planes (year 4), growing by 15 planes per year. The last sale is made in year 12, when it is replaced by a new model. What are the NPV (as of the beginning of year 1) and the IRR of the plane using a 9% discount rate?

Create a loop that depends on a variable x starting with the value 1 and increasing in value by 1 for each iteration of the loop, until x reaches a maximum value specified by the formal parameter maxVal. At each iteration of the loop the value of x should be displayed, unless one of the conditions shown below is true, when the message specified below should be displayed instead:

Write a function playGame(maxValue) to perform the following task (it’s based on an old school yard game called “Fuzz Buzz”):

Create a loop that depends on a variable x starting with the value 1 and increasing in value by 1 for each iteration of the loop, until x reaches a maximum value specified by the formal parameter maxVal. At each iteration of the loop the value of x should be displayed, unless one of the conditions shown below is true, when the message specified below should be displayed instead:

• If the value of x is divisible by 11, skip to the next value of x and display the word “skip”.

• If the value of x is divisible by 10, display the word “fuzz”

• If the value of x is divisible by 4, display the word “buzz”

• If the value of x is divisible by both 10 and 4, display the words “fuzz”

and “buzz”, unless the first rule applies.

• Otherwise just display the value of x.

You can find out if a number is ***** by another using the modulo operator %. This tells you the remainder after integer division. For example:

8 % 2 equals 0 as 2 goes into 8 four times leaving no remainder.

8 % 3 equals 2 as 3 goes into 8 two times leaving a remainder of 2.

You should then create a function runGame() that invites the user to enter an appropriate value for maxValue, and then calls the playGame() function accordingly.
