Please discuss the four spheres of political action in nursing. In addition, please develop a brief argument sharing how these spheres are interconnected and overlapping by applying an example from your practice. What are some ethical considerations here?
Drug A has the following characteristics: Volume of distribution (Vd) = 40 liters; Half-Life = 15 hours. Assuming a dose of 150 mg given every twenty-four hours and a 70% absorption rate. Maintaining the parameters given for Drug A, calculate the effects of changing the dose interval on the steady state concentration. Use a dose size of 300 mg and calculate the effects of using the following dose intervals: 48 hours; 24 hours; 12 hours; 6 hours.
Scenario: Susn is a 65-year-old school nurse who has recently retired from an elementary school. She is beginning to feel rather lonely now that she is no longer working.

M.T., a 75-year-old, white 60kg IBW woman with a serum creatinine of 1.8 mg/dL, has atrial fibrillation. A decision has been made to use digoxin for heart failure. The target concentration of digoxin for the treatment of atrial fibrillation is 0.5 ng/mL to less than 1 ng/mL, but her current level is high at 2 ng/mL. What is her estimated creatinine clearance using the Cockcroft/Gault method? GFR using the MDRD method? Assuming a half-life of four days, how long will it take for M.T. to achieve a 1 ng/mL level? A 0.5 ng/mL level?
