Then and Now: Conflict and Triumph in the
World of Warcraft
Two years have passed since the founding of Durotar....
Although the armistice between the mighty Horde and the noble Alliance has held, tensions between the two factions continue to mount as worldwide conflicts draw the two sides closer to all-out war. Fighting has erupted in the strategic battlegrounds of Alterac Valley,
Warsong Gulch, and Arathi Basin, and more recently in Eastern Plaguelands and Silithus.
Even as these old enemies have renewed their quarrels, many ancient threats have resurfaced to menace the beleaguered races of Azeroth. As if spurred by unseen forces, dark agents have labored to push the world closer to the brink of oblivion.

Shadows Return
Deep within Deadwind Pass, restless ghosts roam the darkened halls of Karazhan, where the demon-possessed wizard Medivh spent his final days. Tempted by rumors of the time-lost secrets kept within, adventurers have begun infiltrating the haunted tower. Within the secret passages of the arcane stronghold, horrific nightmares have awakened.
Elsewhere, the brooding dragon Nozdormu stirs. The Timeless One has sensed a threat to his beloved timeways. Shadowy agents have infiltrated the Caverns of Time, attempting to sabotage three key historical events: Thrall's escape from Durnholde, the monumental
Battle of Mount Hyjal, and Medivh's creation of the Dark Portal. In the face of this overwhelming threat, Nozdormu is enlisting heroes to help him prevent the fabric of time from unraveling forever.

Within Blackrock Spire, the legacy of the black dragon Deathwing continued to unfold as
Nefarian followed in his father's contemptible footsteps. With the aid of his sister Onyxia and the orchestrations of their human personas, Nefarian worked toward replenishing the black dragonflight. To that end, he created chromatic dragons: unspeakable hybrids of both red and black dragons.

With the future in peril, a relic of the past has also surfaced, radiating renewed energy.
This relic has enabled Lord Kazzak to activate the current Dark Portal, thereby reopening the gateway to....

Meanwhile, the priests of Hakkar enacted primitive rituals on behalf of their fiendish blood god. First, priests at the Temple of Atal'Hakkar succeeded in calling forth the god's avatar.
Then, within the crumbling ruins of Zul'Gurub, priests summoned the bloodthirsty, diabolical
Soulflayer physically into Azeroth.

Here, before Draenor was torn apart by Ner'zhul's portals, the orcs and draenei once lived in peace. Now this wasteland is ruled by the one-time defender of the night elves: the power-mad Betrayer, Illidan Stormrage.

Nor was the spread of evil limited to the physical realm alone. Several green dragons, once
Ysera's trusted lieutenants, have been corrupted by the Emerald Nightmare, emerging from dream portals across the world to threaten the very lives they once protected.

Joined by Prince Kael'thas Sunstrider's blood elves and the insidious, serpentine naga,
Illidan maintains a tight hold on Outland and its multiple portals. The Burning Legion has set its sights on Outland as well, hoping to utilize the portals to gain access to numerous unspoiled worlds. Should the demons prove successful, no refuge would remain against their nihilistic crusade.

Throughout Silithus, insect swarms surged as if guided by some malignant, ancient intelligence. Behind the gates of the Scarab Wall the merciless qiraji stirred once again.
Empowered by the Old God C'Thun, the qiraji prepared their legions for a worldwide assault to avenge their bitter defeat at the hands of the night elves a thousand years ago.
Worst of all, the Lich King's icy grip descended upon Azeroth once again as the Scourge renewed its assault against living and undead alike. Foreboding necropoli recently appeared over several major cities. Alliance and Horde forces mobilized and drove the Scourge back.
Nevertheless, questions remain. Was this defeat truly a setback for the Lich King? Or did this first attack further a different goal for the Scourge? Whatever the case, Kel'Thuzad is clearly setting the stage for a full-scale, apocalyptic invasion from his seat of power in Naxxramas.
The heroes of the world have bravely faced these challenges and more, struggling to ensure the continued survival of their races. The greatest perils, however, remain unseen. Many of these new threats have the inhabitants of the world wondering if peace will ever find a home in Azeroth....

The Shattered Realm of Outland

Furthermore, the demon lord Kil'jaeden has not forgotten Illidan's failure to destroy the
Lich King. Although Illidan still controls the mighty Black Temple, he anticipates the Burning
Legion's return and is preparing accordingly. He and his allies fight to ensure that Outland's multiple portals remain tightly sealed while he strengthens his power base.
Even so, Illidan's forces are not the only presence on Outland. Several other factions roam the scattered wastes as well.
Bands of draenei remain, although many of them have devolved into Broken, warped shells of their former selves. Cut off from the Light, these Broken fight for their sanity and their lives.
In addition, much to Warchief Thrall's horror, refugee orcs in the desolate region have discovered and embraced a new source of demonic corruption. Recently a new breed of fel orcs began streaming out of Hellfire Citadel, the Horde base of operations during the
First and Second Wars. Though these savage orcs have made no secret of their presence on Outland, the source of their newfound corruption remains a mystery.
7

Using their dimensional fortress, Tempest Keep, the naaru have recently arrived on Outland as well. These energy beings recognize the strategic importance of the broken wastes and have vowed to defeat their sworn enemies–the Legion–at all costs. When most of the naaru set out to explore the ravaged territories of Outland, however, Kael'thas seized the opportunity to strike.
The blood elves assaulted the fortress, overcoming its automated defenses and taking command of the keep's satellite structures. Kael'thas has now begun manipulating the fortress' otherworldly technologies, using them to harness the chaotic energies of the
Netherstorm itself.
Despite Illidan's efforts to keep Outland's portals closed, the Horde and Alliance have anticipated Outland's role in renewed hostilities and ever more perilous threats. The denizens of Azeroth are thus preparing not only to battle each other, but also to face the inevitable onslaught of the Burning Legion. To that end, both Horde and Alliance have recruited new allies.
Two bold new races have stepped forward to answer the call. Devastated by the recent
Scourge invasion of Quel'Thalas, the resourceful, magic-addicted blood elves have rallied to rebuild much of their kingdom and take up the cause of the Horde. Meanwhile, the draenei, who once peacefully coexisted with the shamanistic orcs, have joined the
Alliance to fight the Burning Legion and avenge past atrocities committed by the orcs....

The Flight of the Draenei
Long ago, on the world of Argus, the brilliant and magically gifted eredar race drew the attention of Sargeras, the Destroyer of Worlds. Sargeras offered untold power to the three leaders of the eredar–Kil'jaeden, Archimonde and Velen–in exchange for their unquestioning loyalty. A troubling vision soon came to Velen, who saw the eredar transformed into unspeakable demons–the first sentient members of the Legion, which would grow to immense size and decimate all life.
Despite Velen's warnings, Kil'jaeden and Archimonde decided to accept Sargeras' offer.
Velen despaired at his former friends' decision and prayed for help. To his surprise and relief, he was answered by one of the benevolent naaru. These energy beings had, like
Velen, foreseen the formation of the Burning Legion.
The naaru offered to shepherd Velen and other believers to refuge. Velen quietly gathered those of his fellow eredar who seemed trustworthy and dubbed them the draenei, or "exiled ones." As Sargeras returned to Argus and transformed many willing eredar into demons, the draenei narrowly escaped their homeworld. Furious, Kil'jaeden vowed to track Velen to the ends of creation.
Even as the Burning Legion chased the draenei across the cosmos, the naaru instructed the exiles in the way of the Light. Deeply affected, the draenei vowed to honor the Light and uphold the naaru's ideals.
In time the draenei settled on a remote world and met the shamanistic orcs who inhabited it. The draenei came to call their new home Draenor or "Exiles' Refuge."
Kil'jaeden continued to hunt the exiles, however, and he eventually learned of the idyllic world and its unsuspecting inhabitants.
Working through the shaman Ner'zhul, the demon lord gradually began corrupting the orcs. When Ner'zhul refused to serve the Legion's agenda past a certain point,
Kil'jaeden turned to Ner'zhul's apprentice. Gul'dan worked the orcs into a frenzy of bloodlust, and the newly formed Horde began slaughtering the peaceful draenei.
The orcish campaign against the draenei was brutally effective.
Over eighty percent of the draenei race was destroyed, though a small group of survivors remained, including the noble Velen.
The orcs went on to invade Azeroth through Medivh's
Dark Portal. Years later, after the Second War, Ner'zhul's additional portals would tear Draenor to pieces.
Recently Velen and the remaining draenei survivors gained control of one of Tempest Keep's satellite structures and used it to escape to Azeroth. Now they search for allies in their never-ending battle against the Burning Crusade.

Legacy of the Blood Elves
Long ago the exiled high elves landed on the shores of Lordaeron. They struck out to find a new home, and after many battles with the trolls, established the kingdom of Quel'Thalas.
Using a vial of sacred water stolen from the first Well of Eternity, the high elves created a fount of mystical power at a convergence of ley energies in Quel'Thalas. They named this fountain the Sunwell. Its potent arcane magic fed and strengthened the high elves, and soon the wondrous city of Silvermoon was established.

Rommath has made great progress in teaching the blood elves advanced techniques to manipulate arcane energies. With renewed purpose, the blood elves have now rebuilt the city of Silvermoon, though it is powered by volatile magics. Emboldened by the promise of Kael'thas' return, the weary citizens of Quel'Thalas now focus on regaining their strength, even as they forge a new path into an uncertain future.

Protected by a magical barrier, the high elves enjoyed peace for roughly four thousand years, but that peace was not meant to last. The Amani trolls gathered an immense army and assaulted the elven kingdom. Vastly outnumbered, the high elves hastily struck an alliance with the human nation of Arathor. The elves taught a small number of humans how to wield magic. In exchange the humans aided the elves in destroying the trolls' power base forever.
Over the following years the high elves returned to their reclusive ways, but during the Third War, the diabolical Prince Arthas Menethil brought battle once again to their doorstep. Arthas craved the power of the Sunwell and would stop at nothing to harness it. He invaded Quel'Thalas and wiped out most of its population. In the end, even King
Anasterian Sunstrider lay dead.
Additionally it became clear that the high elves had become addicted to the Sunwell's arcane energies. Now that the source of their magic was gone, the few remaining high elves quickly grew ill and apathetic.
Prince Kael'thas, last of the royal line, returned from his studies in Dalaran to find Quel'Thalas in ruins. Thirsting for vengeance, he gathered the survivors, renamed them blood elves, and took a group of the strongest fighters to join Lordaeron's campaign against the Scourge.
Duezto human prejudice, Kael'thas was forced to accept the assistance of Lady Vashj and her reptilian naga. When the humans discovered that the blood elves had been working with the naga, Kael'thas and the others were imprisoned and condemned to death. Lady Vashj soon arrived to set them free, leading them through a portal and into the broken wastes of Outland.

12

There, the elves met the one being capable of putting an end to their hunger: the renegade demon, Illidan
Stormrage. Certain that the blood elves would die without
Illidan's assistance, Kael'thas agreed to serve the Betrayer.
A lone representative, Rommath, was sent back to
Azeroth with a message of hope for the blood elves remaining in Quel'Thalas: that one day Kael'thas would return to lead his people to paradise.

New Profession: Jewelcrafting

Socketed Items

One of the exciting new features of World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade is the profession of jewelcrafting.

At higher levels, socketed items and specially cut gems become highly important. Various socketed items, including armor and weapons, can be found in dungeons, but the expansion also introduces many new recipes for all the professions. These recipes allow leatherworkers, blacksmiths, and tailors to create socketed items.

Jewelcrafters learn the art of creating beautiful jewelry and trinkets from metals and rare gems. By processing raw ore mined from various deposits and mineral veins, jewelcrafters extract gems to use for their craft.
Jewelcrafters work with gems in many different ways.
A jewelcrafter may create rings, amulets, and trinkets that function just like those that can already be found in the game, with a few notable exceptions.
For example, jewelcrafters can learn to create gemmed figurines that these jewelcrafters can then carry in their trinket slots. Such figurines provide passive benefits, but they can also be used to provide the jewelcrafter with a temporary combat-related bonus, such as a damage boost or extra healing powers.
Jewelcrafters can also cut gems for use in socketed items. Gems come in many different colors and shapes.
Different types of gems have different basic properties, and a gem's cut also determines the effect that gem has.

Socketed items can be of uncommon, rare, or even epic quality. Each of an item's sockets can also have a specific color. You can put a gem into a socket and match that gem's color to the socket's color. If you use such color-matched gems in all of an item's sockets, the item acquires a special stat bonus beyond the individual gems' effects. However, you can also put gems of a different color in these sockets if you prefer a specific gem effect instead of the color-matching bonus.
Any character can insert gems into an item's sockets: you do not need to be a jewelcrafter to do so. However, you will need to ask a jewelcrafter, or become one yourself, to obtain most of the gems you can socket. Several of the expansion's high-level bosses may also be a source of cut gems. There are rumors that these bosses hold stones with fantastic, untold powers.
To learn more about jewelcrafting and socketed items, please visit:

http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/info/professions/jewelcrafting.html http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/info/items/socketeditems.html Placing cut gems into an item's sockets will add the bonuses of these gems to the item, allowing players to customize their equipment to better suit their individual play styles or the different roles their classes can fulfill.

The Journey Ahead: Level Cap Raised
Millions of intrepid adventurers have overcome staggering odds to reach the pinnacle of achievement in World of Warcraft: level 60.
These bold heroes, as well as others who are approaching this important milestone, will be glad to learn that the level cap for World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade has been raised to 70.
A whole new world of danger and discovery awaits players at the highest level. Benefits for those adventuring beyond level 60 include fantastic new skills, talents, and abilities.
So dust off your armor, ready your mounts, and oil your blades.
The adventure has just begun.

Player vs. Player
PvP (or Player vs. Player) play in the World of Warcraft has been taken to a whole new level in World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade. The expansion introduces an entirely new system of PvP, as well as alterations to the existing honor system.

In the second mode, level-70 players can compete in the Steamwheedle Cartel's gladiatorial games as a "registered team." This mode is based on a ladder system with play "seasons"; each season lasts three months. At the end of each week, player performance is rated, and arena points are awarded. These points may be spent on items such as armor, jewelry, trinkets, and even weapons.
In World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade, significant changes have also been made to the current honor system. In the honor system, players receive honor points each day for vanquishing opponents or winning battleground and outdoor PvP objectives. Players can now spend honor points directly on armor, weapons, and other rewards offered by Alliance and Horde quartermasters. In addition, honor points will no longer degrade over time.
Players will have ample opportunity to experiment with all the changes made to PvP style play in World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade. Most zones in Outland, for instance, have PvP objectives associated with them, providing a wide array of varied and unique play experiences.
For further details relating to the exciting changes made to the honor system, and for more information regarding the all-new gladiatorial arena system, please log on to:

http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/pvp/arena/

Gladiatorial arenas are available for the first time in The Burning Crusade.
In this thrilling addition to PvP combat, players can form teams for the first time, organizing groups of 2 vs. 2, 3 vs. 3, or 5 vs. 5 for deathmatch-style competition.
Two separate modes of arena play are introduced. In "practice" mode, players compete for fun and for the sake of improving their (or their team's) skill. No rewards are offered, and players are matched up based on character level and the quality of their gear.

Beyond the Untamed Horizon:
Flying Mounts
Fewer than twenty years ago, Draenor was ripped apart by the violent energies of several dimensional portals. To this day, certain parts of Outland are unreachable by foot or boat. Yet the denizens of Outland adapted and learned to harness various species as flying mounts, allowing adventurers to reach even the most remote and dangerous regions of this untamed world.

Players have full control over their mounts and thus are free to roam the skies and explore all regions of Outland.
To learn more about flying mounts, visit:

http://www.worldofwarcraft.com/info/basics/flyingmounts/
One of the exciting new features of World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade is the introduction of a new kind of mount that provides players with unprecedented freedom to explore the world of Outland from an entirely new perspective. Upon reaching level 70, players can obtain a flying mount. Both Horde and Alliance will have their own special flying mount type, to which every player of that faction has access. There are also a number of special flying mounts that will be extremely rare even among the most powerful characters.

...By Mashell Chapeyama Competitive tactics There are a number of competitive tactics that a company may choose from. For example, there are timing tactics, market locations tactics and cooperative tactics. This essay shall discuss the cooperative tactic that is used in business. A tactic is basically similar to a strategy, but it has a shorter time frame. An example of Zimpost private limited shall be discussed in this essay.

That is where postage stamps are sold. Parcels are sent and delivered by Zimpost. It delivers mail and parcels in the country and globally. Various types of parcels and mail are sent. Zimpost has entered into a partnership with DHL. DHL is an international company that delivers mail and parcel across the entire globe. In Zimbabwe, DHL has very limited facilities. It does not have huge offices and other premises. It does not have many delivering vehicles in the country.

On the other hand Zimpost does not have cargo flights to carry mail around the globe. In their partnership these two companies are using cooperative strategy.

Documentation Techniques

...------------------------------------------------- Documentation Techniques Five documentation techniques include data flow diagrams, entity relationship diagrams, system flowcharts, program flowcharts, and record layout diagrams. Data Flow Diagrams and Entity Relationship Diagrams * Data flow diagrams – Data flow diagrams (DFD) use symbols to represent the entities, processes, data flows, and data stores that pertain to a system. * Entities – Entities in a DFD are objects that lie at the boundary of the system being modeled. They are the sources of and destinations for data and can be other interfacing systems or entities external to the organization. Entities are labeled as singular nouns on a DFD. Data stores represent the accounting files and records used in each process, and the labeled arrows represent data flows between processes, data stores, and entities. * Processes – Processes are labeled with a descriptive verb. Process objects should not be represented as nouns. The arrows connecting objects should be labeled to represent specific flows of data. Also, each data flow label should be unique. The same label should not be attached to two different flow lines in the same DFD. * Usage – Systems analysts use DFDs extensively to represent the logical elements of the system. It does not depict the physical system. * Entity relationship diagrams – An entity relationship diagram is used to represent the relationship between business...

Visa Documentation

...received my Student visa, when should I travel? Students (F1 or M1) may travel within 30 days of the commencement of the course of study as stated on your I-20 regardless of how early your visa was issued. I have taken a loan from a bank to cover my tuition. Do I still need to show other financial documents? In such a case, please bring official documents, which verify the loan approval and not just the application. You must prove that funds are immediately available to cover the first year' costs, s and show evidence that funds will be available for all subsequent years. Also since Indian banks ordinarily give educational loans of relatively modest amounts, the application must still demonstrate additional liquid assets and any financial documentation you provide should be in support of this. This applies to all student visa applicants. Can I work on a student Visa? An F-1 Visa holder may accept employment on-campus, but working off-campus during the first year of study is rarely permitted. In certain cases, INS may grant permission to accept off-campus employment after one year. Except for temporary practical training, an M-1 Visa holder may not accept employment at all. Neither the spouse nor children of the student may accept employment at any time. What if I receive an I-20 from a better university after getting F1 visa? If you have obtained your visa and need to change the name of the university on your visa, you have to go through the complete process once again by......

Influence Tactics

...The types of influence tactics I use are dependent on who I am trying to influence and why I want to influence them. The exercise in Influence: Gaining Commitment, Getting Results requests that I not consider who I am attempting to influence when determining my answers (Scharlatt 17). The information I gain from completing the exercise will help develop a plan on how to use each influential tactic to better influence those around me (Scharlatt 19). There are eleven different tactics used to gain influence. These are rational persuasion, consultation, inspirational appeals, collaboration, apprising, ingratiation, exchange, personal appeals, legitimizing, pressure, and coalition tactics. Rational persuasion includes logical explanations and factual and detailed evidence (Scharlatt 17). Consultation includes being open to ideas from the requested and thoughtful responses from me regarding those ideas (Scharlatt 18). Inspirational appeal includes showing how the request meets that person’s goals and is clear and appealing for that person to support (Scharlatt 17-18). Collaboration includes my ability to provide the necessary resources to complete the task and reduction of difficulty to ensure success (Scharlatt 17-18). Apprising includes explanation of long-term benefits of opportunities to learn a new skill (Scharlatt 17-18).

Export Documentations

...Export Documentation Exporters should seriously consider having the freight forwarder handle the formidable amount of documentation that exporting requires as forwarders are specialists in this process. The following documents are commonly used in exporting; but which of them are necessary in a particular transaction depends on the requirements of the U.S. government and the government of the importing country. • Air freight shipments are handled by air waybills, which can never be made in negotiable form • A bill of lading is a contract between the owner of the goods and the carrier (as with domestic shipments). For vessels, there are two types: a straight bill of lading which is nonnegotiable and a negotiable or shipper's order bill of lading. The latter can be bought, sold, or traded while the goods are in transit. The customer usually needs an original as proof of ownership to take possession of the goods • A commercial invoice is a bill for the goods from the seller to the buyer. These invoices are often used by governments to determine the true value of goods when assessing customs duties. Governments that use the commercial invoice to control imports will often specify its form, content, number of copies, language to be used, and other characteristics. • A consular invoice is a document that is required in some countries. It describes the shipment of goods and shows information such as the consignor, consignee, and value of the shipment. Certified......

The Tamer's Tactics

...The Tamer’s Tactics Some people are wild, some people are calmed, some people are extroverted, and some are shy. Others believe some people have control, while others need to be tamed. In Shakespeare’s play The Taming of the Shrew, a man named Petrucchio, is determined to tame a young lady named Katherine. He believes she is like a wild cat that needs to be tamed and it is because of this that he comes up with a series of tactics. Now at this moment, the audience is thinking: “will the tactics be effective” and if they are how effective will they be? Will Katherine be tamed and will she become a good wife? Well in Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, the tactics used by Petrucchio to tame Katherine are truly effective, making an important change in Katherine’s behavior. In The Taming of the Shrew, Petrucchio is presented with the challenge of taming lady Kate, daughter of Baptista and sister of Bianca. Kate’s father does not let her sister marry until she marries, but the problem is everybody sees Kate as the ogre of the city. Petrucchio only accepts the challenge because he procures her money and his interest is so big that he is not intimidated by the challenge and as soon as he meets her he starts playing the game as well. He approaches her in a friendly way, with such volubility, trying to make her feel comfortable as if they knew each other from a long time in the past. During the conversation things start to get heated up and Petrucchio starts getting intense....

Persuation Tactics

...They are best applied in combinations and strings that multiply their impact. Effective practitioners will be aware of influence opportunities that allow the principles to be employed conjointly or sequentially. Second, the science of social influence, like any powerful technology, can be commissioned for good or ill. One needs to understand the acceptable versus the objectionable use of the process. Just because we can employ the lessons of that science to influence others doesn’ mean that we are entitled— or even wise— to do so using these principles to trick or trap t others into assent has significant ethical and practical downsides. As the best influence professionals have long realized, to the extent that dishonest or high pressure tactics work at all, they work only in the short run. Their long-term effects are malignant — undermining trust and damaging the reputation of the practitioner who employs them. Thus, the deceptive or coercive use of social influence principles within professional relationships is not only ethically wrong, it’ pragmatically s wrongheaded. Yet the same principles, if engaged appropriately, can influence decisions in a positive way. When the similarities are authentic, the windows of opportunity truly closing, the authority legitimate, the commitments freely made, the obligations genuine, and the social proof real, the resultant choices are likely to benefit everyone. 1 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persuasion LIKING “ People prefer......

Proactive Tactics

...Proactive Tactics The three proactive tactics I'm going to discuss are repeat offenders programs (ROPs), decoy operations, and efforts against drunk drivers. The repeat offenders programs first objective is to recognize repeat offenders by their past criminal history and activity. After they have recognized the repeat offenders they will use surveillance by watching the person and waiting for the individual to commit a crime. After the surveillance of a crime they can make a formal arrest. The repeat offender’s programs second objective is a proactive tactic that can be done in two different ways, blending and decoy. The blending method is where enforcement dress as plain clothed citizens. This keeps other members of the community to not recognize them as law enforcement. This helps them to gain information and keep a close eye for crime. Decoy is where officer’s dress and role play as ordinary citizens. The officers may dress and act in any way needed to portray themselves as an easy target for crime. This helps them to gain the interest of the criminal in order to arrest him. Efforts against drunk driving have been one of the top concerning issues that need attention in America today. Police officers and law enforcement will set up road side stops for every car that falls under a certain number on the road. The officers will then try to determine if the person is under the influence of any alcohol, if the person is suspected of being under the influence they are......

Electronic Documentation

...Electronic Documentation Nursing is a fast changing profession that has been vital to providing care in the medical setting. Throughout the past several years one of the most recognizable changes in the medical field is the transformation from paper charting to electronic forms of documentation. This has led to a decrease in the amount of paper charting by allowing nurses to use check boxes, cell formatting, and computer databases to keep patients records more accessible and organized. As new forms of technology become available we find that there are often flaws that need to be assessed and corrected to properly implement an optimal computing system. The clinical integration paper examines the positive and negative aspects of electronic documentation in the nursing field as it pertains to time management, patient safety and its efficacy. It was found that nurses spend the largest proportion of their time at the nurses station documenting and coordinating patient’s care with twenty five to fifty percent, which results in less time spent on patient care (Blair & Smith, 2012). This is alarming knowing that approximately a quarter to half of a nurse’s shift is done sitting in front of a computer documenting the day’s events. At Central Baptist Hospital I believe that more than half a day could be taken up by computer charting. From what I have experienced, a nurse may begin their shift with anywhere between four to six patients. These patients require a general...
