Document Content and Description Below

Quiz 1 Prof. Nursing Practice NUR3805 The newly licensed nurse finds many inconsistencies between what was taught in nursing school and what occurs in the practice setting. How is this situation lik... ely to affect this nurse's socialization into nursing practice? Selected Answer: It may hinder socialization. Response Feedback: Generally, the more congruence there is between what was taught in nursing school and the way the new nurse is expected to practice, the more successful the socialization. Lack of congruence can impede socialization, not quicken it. It may also interfere with the quality of the nurse's practice.  Question 2 A newly licensed nurse was previously employed as a unit secretary on the same unit where he now works as a staff nurse. This role transition is causing the nurse to experience stress. What information about role stress and transition would be most helpful for this nurse to consider? Selected Answer: Role stress can be decreased by receiving clear and consistent information about expectations of the new role. Response Feedback: Role stress is made worse by role ambiguity, role conflict, role incongruity, role overload or underload, and by role over- or underqualification. Having clear and consistent information about expectations of the new role is helpful and combats role ambiguity. Taking on multiple roles can result in role ambiguity and overload. Nursing standards of care are universal and are not different in the "real world," even though the standards may not be upheld by overworked, overstressed nurses. Role stress is not limited to newly licensed nurses and can occur at any time during a nurse's career.  Question 3 Which option best describes discipline as it applies to nursing? Selected Answer: The discipline of nursing is nursing's distinct body of knowledge. Response Feedback: A discipline is a branch of knowledge, and human knowledge is divided into disciplines. Therefore, the discipline of nursing refers to that body of knowledge distinct to nursing. Although nursing is often autonomous, is governed by standards of practice, and has a rigorous code of ethics, those concepts are not the discipline of nursing.

What issue associated with role development does this situation exemplify? Selected Answer: Reality shock Response Feedback: Transition shock or reality shock may happen when the perceived role comes into conflict with the performed role. Role sending involves the members of the role set communicating role expectations. Role formation is affected by factors such as personality, attitudes, qualifications, educational preparation, and clarity of communication. Role mastery is when a person demonstrates behaviors that meet the societal or cultural expectations associated with the specific role.  Question 5 Which organization published a 1965 position paper that identified associate degree nurses as "technical nurses"? Selected Answer: The American Nurses Association Response Feedback: In 1965, the American Nurses Association published a position paper on education of nurses that differentiated nurses with baccalaureate degrees and nurses with associate degrees as professional and technical nurses. The other organizations listed did not publish such papers.  Question 6 The nurse's research is directed toward testing a specific hypothesis deduced from a theory. Which research approach does this work represent? Selected Answer: Positivist Response Feedback: The positivist approach deals with natural law and assumes that there is a body of facts and principles to be discovered and understood that is independent of the context. In this approach, hypotheses are deduced from the theory to be tested in research. The dynamic approach is also referred to as constructivist. In this approach theories are inductively constructed and give insights into social contexts and personal meanings. This approach uses naturalistic settings and observational methods.
