Between the 10-year projection of a half million FTE nursing shortage, astronomical medical care costs and a lingering recession, nursing administrators have no option but to make difficult choices in resource allocation. What are the ethics inherent in such a situation? Silva & Lewis reveal the opinions of current nurse leaders.
Gene expression time course data can be used not only to detect differentially expressed genes but also to find temporal associations among genes. The problem of reconstructing generalized logical networks to account for temporal dependencies among genes and environmental stimuli from transcriptomic data is addressed. A network reconstruction algorithm was(More)
The problem of computing logical network models to account for temporal dependencies among interacting genes and environmental stimuli from high-throughput transcriptomic data is addressed. A logical network reconstruction algorithm was developed that uses the statistical significance as a criterion for network selection to avoid false interactions arising(More)
1 Problem statement. We address the computational problems of discretizing continuous random variables and identifying a logical network model to account for temporal dependencies among genes and environmental stimuli from high-throughput transcriptome data. These new algorithms were applied to real biological data from an analysis of the molecular response(More)
As a result of mixed and seemingly contradictory forces in the sociopolitical, economic, and health care environments, credentialing has taken on new momentum and direction in the United States and abroad. The nursing profession, including the American Nurses Credentialing Center, is meeting the challenge through new approaches and partnership endeavors(More)
Gene expression time course data can be used not only to detect differentially expressed genes, but also to find temporal associations among different genes. The problem of reconstructing generalized logical networks to account for temporal dependencies among genes and environmental stimuli from high-throughput transcriptomic data is addressed. A network(More)
This article discusses the history of certification process and distinguishes and analyzes past and present uses of the certification process. It explores changes in the regulatory process and the impact on nurse licensure and evaluates past, present, and future uses of certification related to advanced practice, credentialing, and the scope of nursing(More)
