1 Essentials of Advanced Nursing Practice Field Experience Western Governors University A1. Purpose and Overview The purpose of this paper is that I have been assigned to be a nursing consultant and to analyze a healthcare organization and identify if a change or improvement is needed. The facility I have analyzed is Central Florida Regional Hospital. I have evaluated HCAHPS scores,

2 patient metrics, community needs and compare to other facilities in the area. I sat and interviewed the nursing director Ann. We discussed and reviewed the HCAHPS scores which show that the quietness of the hospital was very low. Ann and I discussed different ways to improve this. To begin this process, I will first meet with the administration to see what the process is now for reducing noise throughout the hospital. Then I will go to the units to observe the floor layout and speak with the nurses and ask them how we could improve reducing the noise. I would then begin a plan that would help reduce noise throughout the facility. A2.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
