Fundamentals of Nursing 10th Edition Potter Perry Test Bank Chapter 1. Nursing Today MULTIPLE CHOICE 1. Contemporary nursing practice is based on knowledge generated through nursing theories. Flo renc... e Nightingales theory introduced the concept that nursing care focuses on: 1 Psychological needs 2 A maximal level of wellness 3 Health maintenance and restoration 4 Interpersonal interactions with the client ANS: 3 Florence Nightingale believed the role of the nurse was to put the clients body in the best state in order to remain free of disease or to recover from disease. Although Florence Nightingale may have addressed meeting the psychological needs of her clients, it is not the focus of her theory. The goal of Nightingales theory is to facilitate the bodys reparative processes by manipulating the clients environment. Florence Nightingale thought the human body had reparative properties of its own if it was cared for in a way to recover from disease. Her theory did not focus on achieving a maximal level of wellness. Florence Nightingale believed the nurse was in charge of the clients health. Although she interacted with her clients by reading to them, her theory of nursing care did not focus upon interpersonal interactions.

Knowledge of the Nurse Practice Act is necessary to provide safe and legal nursing care. Standards of nursing practice are not specific to a city, but rather to the profession itself. Although the clinical ladder of mobility may be of interest in regard to professional advancement, it is not the most important factor when practicing nursing in another state. Knowledge of the Nurse Practice Act in order to provide safe and legal nursing care is of higher importance. Regardless of where a nurse practices, the nurse should strive to remain current.
