Test Bank For Fundamentals Of Nursing 3rd Edition By Wilkinson Treas – Smith

Chapter 1. Evolution of Nursing Thought & Action

MULTIPLE CHOICE

  1. Which of the following is an example of an illness prevention activity?
a) Encouraging the use of a food diary
b) Joining a cancer support group
c) Administering immunization for HPV
d) Teaching a diabetic patient about his diet

ANS:  C

Administering immunization for HPV is an example of illness prevention. Although cancer is a disease, it is assumed that a person joining a support group would already have the disease; therefore, it would be treatment and not disease prevention. Illness prevention activities focus on avoiding a specific disease. A food diary is a health promotion activity. Teaching a diabetic patient about diet is a treatment for diabetes; the patient already has diabetes, so the teaching cannot prevent diabetes.

  1. Which organization can require nurses to take continuing education courses as a condition of licensure renewal?
a) American Nurses Association
b) National League for Nursing
c) Sigma Theta Tau
d) State Board of Nursing

ANS:  D

Continuing education is a professional strategy designed to ensure that nurses remain current in their clinical knowledge. Many states require nurses to engage in a certain number of continuing-education requirements to renew their license. The knowledge gained in the nursing curriculum is sufficient for nursing school graduates to obtain their initial license. Requirements for renewal of a nurse’s license can be found in the state’s nurse practice act (state board of nursing).

  1. An experienced seasoned nurse uses her knowledge of patient medical conditions and intuition to identify patient problems. She is often the resource for other nurses on the unit. What stage of proficiency has this nurse achieved?
a) Novice
b) Advanced beginner
c) Competent
d) Expert

ANS:  D

The nurse who has reached the expert stage of proficiency has a deep understanding of the clinical situation based on knowledge and experience. The nurse often senses a potential problem in the absence of classic signs and symptoms. The novice nurse is inexperienced and relies on rules and processes. The advanced beginner focuses on aspects of a situation and is unable to see the comprehensive perspective. A nurse functioning at the competent level is able to prioritize to meet the patient needs but does not fully grasp the total situation.
