535 – ASSIGNMENT 1

Arrange a Nurse Educator Interview

By the end of week 2, you will identify and arrange to interview an experienced nurse educator about the trends in nursing education that she/he has observed or experienced during her/his career in education. You will also develop 10–12 interview questions.

  • Type 10–12 interview questions.
  • Be prepared to record responses by:
    • Leaving a space below each of your typed interview questions for jotting down responses

General Guidelines for Developing Interview Questions

  • Your interview questions will depend on the method of interview (formal or informal, face to face, or online web meeting/conferencing) and the specific area the nurse educator is practicing.
  • Word your questions clearly and concisely.
  • Ask open-ended questions.
  • Begin the interview with simple, factual questions that are easy to answer (icebreakers). This will help put the nurse educator at ease and help you establish a rapport. For example:
    • You may ask about qualifications, credentials, expertise, experience, level of education, responsibilities, and/or a typical day.
    • You may wish to ask questions that elicit feedback about how the person became interested in nursing education, how education was selected as a career path, and what steps were taken to become a nurse educator.
  • Next, seek information about personal experiences and opinions, such as:
    • Teaching philosophy and goals related to nursing education
    • Experiences with curricula
    • Experiences with evaluation
    • Ways of knowing that student goals are met
    • Ways of engaging and/or enriching student learning
    • Outlook on the future of nursing education
    • The most effective teaching strategies
    • Positive experiences in teaching
    • Challenges faced as a nurse educator

Introduction

There is more to breast cancer than just gender, as age is also a major determinant. For every eight women, one would be affected with breast cancer in their lifetime, as per the statistics in the United States (Hu et al., 2021). Men are not an exemption as breast cancer can also affect them. Other factors such as obesity, menopause, alcohol, and genes also are factors that can expose victims to the risks of being affected. Breast cancer is by far one of the leading causes of death in women and also the third lethal type of cancer; the literature is directed on not only toward the symptoms and predisposing factors but also the best way to control and prevent breast cancer in the current generation.

Causes of Breast Cancer

There are several ways linked to the advancements of breast cancer; the common ones are genetic mutations and inheritance of genes such as the BRCA 1 and 2, which collectively attributes to about fifteen percent of affected victims (Harbeck et al., 2019). Breast cancer can develop through certain risk factors, such as direct family history, no breastfeeding, age, and genetics. Referring to the research questions, age is also a major area of concern in breast cancer; women above the age of thirty-five are predisposed to breast cancer, accompanied by factors such as the use of contraceptives and birth control; menopause also contributes to most of the cancer developments.

Research suggests that long-term exposure to toxins and chemicals increases the chances of developing breast cancer (Koual et al., 2020). The chemicals might be insecticides, medicines, or pollutants. Global warming and climate change is also a factor as the current generation is exposed to polluted air; this explains why the number of breast cancer has constantly been rising, corresponding to global warming (Winfecaks et al., 2019). The longer people live, the more their bodies are exposed to pollutants and toxins, and the more the chances of genetic mutations, thus exposing them to health conditions such as breast cancer. In that case, age is a significant factor of consideration; therefore, women younger than forty years are less likely to develop breast cancer (Duffy et al., 2020).

Diagnosis and Treatment

Technological advancements have immensely contributed to the healthcare industry. There is a lot of successful medical research that gives a positive perspective on how people look at cancer. The process can not only be slowed down but also treated; this is a breakthrough in medicine. Practical measures for combating breast cancer include surgery, where part of the can
