A. Utilize principles and expertise from nursing and public health fields.
B. Provide assistance to households within the vicinity.

C. Engages in providing care to families and groups, unlike public health nurses, who function in public health departments.

A. Tending to the ill and dying

4. What are the advantages of contemplating our aspirations for community health? Choose all applicable responses.

ANS: A, B, F
Sharing visions or aspirations empowers and reminds us of our purpose. It also invites participation and highlights new prospects. Expressing visions provides an avenue for collaboration, not only on a broad scale but also on specific projects. Nurses don’t enforce their ideas and often collaborate with other professions on health matters.
Cognitive Level: Knowledge

REF: Text page 5

C. Comply with all legal obligations.
D. Uphold the community’s needs over individual wants.

A. According to the instructional manual or textbook
B. Adherence to agency guidelines
C. Abiding by legal statutes and regulations

A. A collection of individuals dwelling in a specific geographical area
B. All residents of a particular community
C. A cluster of people sharing common attributes

C. Offer care to those capable of affording the expense.
D. Adhere to the agency’s policies regardless of their nature.

Channeling focus on fundamental services like immunization or prenatal care is essential to maximize benefits for the greater community, considering the constraints.
Cognitive Level: Application

REF: Text page 12

9. When confronted with an ethical dilemma stemming from limited resources and boundless needs, which course of action advocates for fairness?

B. Offer care to clients based on the order of request.
C. Strive diligently without fretting over the imbalance.
D. Rely on personal clinical acumen and preferences.

A. Through employment at outpatient clinics
B. By providing anticipatory guidance and health advocacy
C. Via mobile van services to residents in their neighborhoods

Cognitive Level: Application

12. Both a hospital-based acute care nurse and a community/public health nurse may render care to a recently discharged patient at their residence. How might the community/public health nurse’s approach differ from the acute care nurse’s?

A. The community/public health nurse might evaluate the health conditions of all family members.
B. The community/public health nurse emphasizes impartiality concerning the family’s living conditions.
C. The community/public health nurse elucidates the rationale behind every nursing intervention.
D. The community/public health nurse aids the family in comprehending the treatment rationale.

While both nurses deliver exemplary care to the individual patient, the acute care nurse tailors interventions to the patient’s needs. Conversely, the community/public health nurse seeks out other family members who may require interventions or referrals. The latter’s care model is family-centered, considering not just the identified client’s health but the entire family’s well-being.
Cognitive Level: Application

REF: Text pages 14, 15

Cognitive Level: Application

REF: Text page 16

Cognitive Level: Application
