    I am an RN of 37 years and I just love these fun litle quizzes. I can tell that who ever puts these together still enjoys nursing as much as I do. I am a PACU nurse and it is the greatest place to work. Plus it helps that I work with fabulous people.

    interesting quiz, thanks! but question 7 makes so many assumptions, as does its explanation. it assumes the nurse is a woman. it assumes she and the single father are both heterosexual. let’s not exclude those in our profession who don’t fit into those categories.

      Great point, ltone317–thanks so much for bringing it up.

  7. Hi Nicole Lehr
    Thanks for sharing this interesting quiz. Many nurses will learn something new after reaging this one.

    I disagree with one of the answers on this quiz that the site has determined that I answered incorrectly. The question about the young cancer patient. While it seems like a great idea to pack that patient up and take him with you to lunch that is actually a very poor choice seeing as how this is a young cancer patient and does not need to be exposed to the germs that he/she would be exposed to while going on such an outing.

    It seems to assume the person taking the quiz is a woman..

    These have nothing to do with being a nurse. They’re just about being assertive and following certain rules at certain times.

    Being a nurse is about thinking on your feet and showing compassion to every person you support irrespective of their background/race/gender etc while knowing plenty about drugs, signs and symptoms and disease management.

    Also, Q1 suggests taking a cancer patient with you to the cafeteria for lunch so you can eat together. This is by far the most stupid suggestion I have ever heard. It doesn’t take into account infection control procedures, if the patient is under strict observations etc. What if the patient was being barrier nursed for an infection while on 15 minute obs including a cardiac monitor while also being nil by mouth in preparation for an operation…still think it’s a good idea to take them to the cafeteria?? Probably not!

    Q8 is also quite offensive. First of all it assumes that the nurse MUST be female. Secondly it assumes that the female nurse MUST be straight. According to the ‘correct’ answer a female to female exchange of information would be okay. What if both females are gay?

    I appreciate that this is supposed to be a lighthearted quiz and I know I’ve read into it too much but that’s what nurses are supposed to do. They’re supposed to pick out subtle signs.

    Rather than taking a quiz you’d be better off knowing how good a nurse you’d be by enrolling yourself in nursing school, taking some tests and asking your patients, ‘how do you think I’m doing? Is there anything I could do to improve the care I’m giving you?’
