Integrating Biblical Principles Into Diabetes Self-Management Education For African Americans, Pandora Goode Nov 2018

Integrating Biblical Principles Into Diabetes Self-Management Education For African Americans, Pandora Goode

International Journal of Faith Community Nursing

An understanding of African Americans characteristics and the influences these have on diabetes self-management behaviors is an important step in designing effective DSME programs. Faith-based programs are an appropriate conduit for individuals to acquire the diabetes knowledge needed to manage their disease and practice the lifestyle changes within their culture. An important connection for many African Americans is the local church, which is an organization that has major influences on individuals’ and on community life. Therefore, the purpose of this manuscript is to discuss integrating spiritual principles with practical principles to help Christians understand how to manage this chronic illness.

Nontraditional Students Success In Compressed Courses Within A Community College Cohort, Elizabeth Kinter Tanner Oct 2018

Nontraditional Students Success In Compressed Courses Within A Community College Cohort, Elizabeth Kinter Tanner

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

Nontraditional students are an untapped population for American higher education institutions. Private baccalaureate-granting universities have taken the lead on creating programs for this population’s needs. These programs typically include combinations of online instruction, cohorts, compressed or accelerated courses, and prior learning assessment. Similarly constructed programs for nontraditional students at public community colleges are less common. A review of the Council for Accelerated Programs’ website reveals only twelve of the 98-member institutions are community or technical colleges, and only one is in California (Council for Accelerated Programs, n.d.). In 2016, Shasta-Tehama-Trinity Joint Community College District in California created the ...
