  • Age 18 or 21

    There is some controversy over the ages 18 and 21. For instance, in some states a person who is 18 can order an alcoholic beverage but in most states, the age is 21. Seems ridiculous given the fact that so many people younger than 21 are serving for their country. The age of emancipation from foster care also differs by state, mostly it is 18 but in some states, it is 21. This essay discusses articles that reported studies about the outcomes for foster kids. They are mostly negative. The outlook is much more positive in states where the age is 21. Included for each article are: theoretical or conceptual framework, methodology, design, and conclusions. A visual graphic that reflects the concepts in each study along with statistical data are included. There are three sources listed in the bibliography of this six page paper.

  • Concept Analysis: Aging

    A 20 page research paper that offers a nursing concept analysis on aging. As the percentage of the American population that is over the age of 65 increases with each passing year, there is more and more attention being paid to geriatric health care needs; and, in keeping with this trend, successful aging is a concept that is also garnering more attention. The importance of geriatric health care issues underlies the need to understand the concept of aging more fully and to describe in detail the differences that are inherent to successful/healthy aging as opposed to maladaptive aging (Flood, 2002). This concept analysis of aging endeavors to accomplish this purpose, as it describes how literature addresses the aging process and its implications. Bibliography lists 26 sources.
