Write a 1- to 2-page essay that describes your identity as it existed before you began your class readings.

For example: How did you or would you define yourself—as a worker, a father, a daughter, a community member, a Hindu, or a Christian? What was most important to you—the price of gas, religious freedom, or a living wage? How big or small was your world—five square blocks, one state, or many countries or continents? How culturally, politically, economically, or religiously diverse was your world? How aware were you of the world outside of your immediate environment?

As part of your essay, in 2 to 3 paragraphs also reflect on your relationship with people in other parts of the world. Who are they to you? Who do you think you are to them?

Refer to 2 specific examples from your course reading and record in your assignment information about each source, including author, year, page number, and publication title.


Cross Training Staff

The practice of cross training staff (learning another type of job) is an old and often successful practice at hospitals.

Using the South University Online Library or the Internet, research cross training techniques. Based on your research and training, respond to the following:


  • What steps would you take in deciding whether or not to cross train lab technicians as x-ray technicians?
  • What are the negative and positive financial considerations in making this decision?
  • What steps will you take to deal with a weekend staffing crisis whereby your small hospital has no x-ray technicians in-house, yet the demand for their services is very high including 30 percent of the need emanating from critical care units.
