1. A key advantage a nurse manager has in terms of delegating is that: a.Clients receive less attention because there are too many staff to coordinate care. b.Nurses report less pressure to perform necessary tasks themselves c.Administration can predict overtime more accurately. d.Team skills can be used more effectively. 2. The nurse on the 11-7 shift is assigning a component of care to an unlicensed nursing personnel (UNP) employee.  The night nurse should remain: a.Accountable and responsible. b.Authoritative and liable. c.Accountable and liable. d.Responsible and task-oriented 3. During staff development programs, staff nurses verbalize their frustration about their workloads and having to  delegate so many tasks to others. One of the main reasons that delegation has emerged as an issue is because of: a.The amount of paperwork required to complete care. b.The complexity of client care. c.Earlier discharge practices. d.The numbers of other disciplines present on a given unit. 4. You are working in a home health service and have three unlicensed nursing personnel (UNPs) assigned to your  team. You have worked with two of them for 2 years; the third is new. The two experienced UNPs have patients with  complex illnesses for whom they provide basic care. The third member of the team has been assigned to patients with  less complex illnesses. Your best approach to supervising their care is to: a.Remain in the office and ask each UNP to check in with you upon arrival at their first patient care site. b.Ask another RN to supervise the two experienced assistants so you can be with the new person full-time. c.Meet the new staff member at the first patient care site and ask the others to call if anything is unusual. d.Meet the new staff member at the first patient care site and call the others with questions to determine whether anything  is unusual. 5.
