1. Contemporary nursing practice is based on knowledge generated through nursing theories. Florence 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.

The NLN provides accreditation to nursing programs that seek and meet the NLN accreditation requirements. The American Nurses Association (ANA) is concerned with the nursing profession and issues affecting health care, including standards of care. The Congress for Nursing Practice is the part of the ANA concerned with determining the legal aspects of nursing practice, the public recognition of the importance of nursing, and the impact of trends in health care on nursing practice. The International Council of Nurses (ICN) is concerned about issues of health care and the nursing profession, including the provision of an international power base for nurses.

The minimum educational requirement for a nurse practitioner is: 1 Diploma in nursing 2 Masters in nursing 3 Doctorate in nursing 4 Baccalaureate in nursing ANS: 2 A masters degree is nursing is required to become a nurse practitioner.

A nurse moves from Seattle to Boston and begins working in a hospital. The most important factor for the nurse to consider when moving to another state is the: 1 Massachusetts Nurse Practice Act 2 Standard for nursing practice in Boston 3 Clinical ladder of mobility in the new hospital 4 Requirement for continuing education units (CEU) in Massachusetts ANS: 1 Although most states have similar practice acts, each individual state has its own Nurse Practice Act that regulates the licensure and practice of nursing within that state. 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.
