The scope of professional nursing practice is determined by the rules promulgated by which organization?

Multiple Choice

A) American Nurses Association (ANA)
B) Institute of Medicine (IOM)
C) States Board of Nursing
D) States Nursing Association
Answer:
C) States Board of Nursing

Explanation:
Professional nursing practice is regulated by each states Board of Nursing. The ANA is the professional organization of registered nursing in the United States and may influence, but it does not regulate. The IOM collaborated with the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to improve the fractured health care system in the United States, and it makes recommendations, not rules. The state nursing associations are state organizations of the ANA and may collaborate with the public and boards of nursing to promote nursing rules which improve health care.

A) Attend nursing educational meetings.
B) Listen to other nurses.

Listening can promote professionalism, and communication is certainly a component of professionalism; however, there is also a social sense to listening, and without the educational/learning component, this is not the best answer. An agency newsletter could include information about professional opportunities, but it is not the best answer. The new nurse would have already passed the licensing exam, the legal requirement to be considered a nurse.

Answer:
D) professional.

Explanation:
The qualities listed are those of a professional nurse.
