Chapter 07: Caring in Nursing Practice MULTIPLE CHOICE 1. Caring is central to nursing practice, but technological advances for rapid diagnosis and treatment should lead the nurse to realize that 1. Technology has replaced caring as nurses primary focus. 2. Technology and caring cannot coexist when related to patient care. 3. Technology becomes a powerful tool when it works with caring. 4. Caring is the essence of nursing and is isolated from technology. ANS: C Technological advances become dangerous without a context of skillful and compassionate care. It is time to value and embrace caring practices and expert knowledge (technology), which are the heart of competent nursing practice. Neither technology nor caring can stand alone. They must coexist to provide ultimate patient care. DIF: Remember REF: 79 OBJ: Discuss the role that caring plays in building a nurse-patient relationship. TOP: Evaluation MSC: Nursing Process 2. Caring is a universal phenomenon that involves 1. Being disconnected. 2. Excluding outside phenomena in favor of family relationships. 3. Focusing only on human relationships with one another. 4. What matters to a person. ANS: D Caring determines what matters to a person. It underlies a wide range of interactions, from parental love to friendship, from caring for ones work to caring for ones pet to caring for and about ones patients. Caring means that people, events, projects, and things matter to a person. It is a word for being connected. DIF: Remember REF: 80 OBJ: Compare and contrast theories on caring. TOP: Assessment MSC: Nursing Process 3. With respect to the concept of caring, most nursing theories 1. Embrace the disease orientation to health care as Watson does. 2.

ANS: C Nursing caring theories have common themes. Caring is highly relational. Caregiving relationships open up possibilities or close them down. Watsons transpersonal caring theory rejects the disease orientation to health care and places care before cure. Leininger stresses the importance of nurses understanding of cultural caring behaviors. Caring is very personal, thus expression of caring differs for each patient. DIF: Understand REF: 80 OBJ: Compare and contrast theories on caring. TOP: Evaluation MSC: Nursing Process 4. The patient has had a colostomy placed but has not yet been able to look at it. The nurse is given the task of teaching the patient how to care for it. The nurse sits with the patient, and together they form a plan on how to approach dealing with colostomy care. Which caring process is the nurse performing? 1. Knowing 2. Doing for 3. Enabling 4. Maintaining belief ANS: C Enabling is facilitating anothers passage through a life transition and unfamiliar events. Working with the patient to find alternate ways to help him face his fears and perform the task is doing just that. Knowing is striving to understand an event because it has meaning in the life of another. This must be done before enabling

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
