I have been in the healthcare field since I was 16 years old and have worked in various areas for the past 14 years. I started my career working as a Certified Nursing Assistant and continued my education by obtaining my Licensed Practical Nursing degree, Associate in Nursing, Bachelor’s in nursing and am currently working through my Psychiatric Mental health Nurse Practitioner program. Through my years in healthcare, I have worked in several different areas of medicine as well as several different states, concluding that mental health was my true passion. Living in a rural area I know the obstacles associated with mental health care and I am perusing my future education with the goal of providing more easily accessible mental healthcare services to those residing in a rural setting.
My goals align with Walden’s vision and goals as I hope to provide a positive social change in the communities and with the patients I will be serving. It is my hope that I can provide more easily accessible mental health care to my community by furthering my education through various educational opportunities, while also forming professional relationships. With the program outcomes, I will be able to deliver high-quality healthcare and identify the needs of my community while providing patient-centered care (Walden, 2022).
Professional relationships have encouraged me to advance my education because of the experiences travel nursing has provided me through the contacts I have made. Working in various fields of medicine has provided me with, “the transmission of information through social and professional interaction within and across networks to improve patient care” (Cunningham FC et al.,2012). Because of the different fields, I have worked in, I have seen the importance of multidisciplinary collaboration for positive patient outcomes. While hospitalists may be versed in the medical needs of patients, they may not be as well versed in the emotional and mental health needs of their patients. Multidisciplinary care and networking have assisted in patient outcomes by creating alliances between departments and building a more trusting work environment (Hamlin, 2022). With Walden’s help, I will be able to better deliver patient care through scholarly education and encouraging confidence to build professional relationships.

Respond to the following scenario with your thoughts, ideas, and comments. Be substantive and clear, and use research to reinforce your ideas.
Over lunch, you and Mary meet to discuss next steps with the expansion project.
“Do we have everything we need on sales and costs?” you ask. ”It must be time to compute the net present value (NPV) and internal rate of return (IRR) of the Apix expansion project.”
“We have the data from James and Luke regarding projected sales and costs, respectively, for the food packaging project,” says Mary. “It is feasible to project that we will receive a tax break from this implementation. I have information from our audit firm that indicates that future depreciation methods for taxes will be straight-line; however, the corporate rates will be reduced to 35% as we assumed in our weighted average cost of capital (WACC) calculation.”
“That sounds good,” you say.
“Right,” says Mary. “You can use a WACC of 10% for the computation of the NPV and comparison for IRR.”
“I’ve got the information I need from Luke and James,” you say. “Does this look right to you? Here’s what they gave me,” you say, as you hand a sheet of paper to Mary.“Let’s look at this now while we’re together,” she says.
The information you hand to Mary shows the following:
Initial investment outlay of $30 million, consisting of $25 million for equipment and $5 million for net working capital (NWC) (plastic substrate and ink inventory); NWC recoverable in terminal year
Project and equipment life: 5 years
Sales: $25 million per year for five years
Assume gross margin of 60% (exclusive of depreciation)
Depreciation: Straight-line for tax purposes
Selling, general, and administrative expenses: 10% of sales
Tax rate: 35%
You continue your conversation.
“It looks good,” says Mary. “Use this information from Luke and James to compute the cash flows for the project.”
“No problem,” you say.
“Then, compute NPV and IRR of the project using the Excel spreadsheet I sent earlier today,” says Mary. “Use the IRR financial function for the computation of IRR.”
“Okay,” you say. “I’ll submit my Excel file showing the computation of cash flows, NPV, and IRR by the end of week so you can look at it over the weekend.”
“Thanks,” says Mary.
