5. What factors are involved in a nurse’s decision as to which responsibilities can be accepted when a family’s needs and desires are overwhelming? ( Select all that apply. ) Families may make unreasonable demands of someone who might be able to help them, and often no human could meet what they request. Furthermore, the needs of the family may be beyond the scope of the nurse’s competence or energy, and time and resources become a factor in making decisions about what a nurse can do. The agency and reimbursement mechanisms also dictate the nurse’s role. A successful community/public health nurse will be aware of personal strengths and preferences and try to use them whenever possible. Because health is related to all aspects of life, excluding variables not related to health would not really exclude many family desires. External variables in the neighborhood are typically beyond the nurse’s ability to repair. DIF: Cognitive Level: Comprehension REF: p. 360

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
