For this week’s NCLEX Question of the Week…

Question:
The nurse is assessing the weight and height of 1-year-old children and comparing their current heights and weights to their birth weights and heights. Which child does the nurse expect to have proper growth and development?

nclex-q-20

Question Options:
1.) Child A
2.) Child B
3.) Child C
4.) Child D

Rationale:
Option 1: The child’s height is increased by only 0.6 foot and weight by only 9 lbs. The child who has adequate growth will have an increase of 1- foot in height and will triple the weight at birth after 1 year. However, the child has increased in height by 0.6 foot and the weight increase is 3lbs less than required which indicates inadequate development.

Option 2:From birth to 1 year, the weight of the child triples and the height increases by 1 foot if adequate nutrition and health are maintained. The child B’s weight tripled and height increased by 1 foot, therefore, child B is said to have appropriate growth and development.

Option 3:The child’s height is increased by only 0.6 foot and weight by only 10 lbs after a year and is less than the expected height and weight for a one-year-old child. Therefore, the child C has inadequate development.

Option 4: The child’s height is increased by 0.6 foot and weight by only 12 lbs compared to a height increase of 1 foot and weight that has tripled. This indicates that the child has inadequate development.

Florence Nightingale Give-A-Way!

We know Florence Nightingale best as the founder of modern nursing but Barbara Dossy, author of Florence Nightingale: Mystic, Visionary, Healer, suggests that is only one side of her many faceted life. Dossy does a fantastic job at illustrating Nightingale’s magnificent legacy. Here are some of our favorite quotes from the book:

“Nightingale’s vision has inspired me in a deeper, richer and more compassionate view of nursing than I had ever conceived. I believe this awareness is valuable not only for nurses, but for anyone who has ever been drawn to ease the pain and suffering of another.”

“By her uncompromising, shining example, she invites each of us to find our meaning and purpose in our own individual journey through life.”

“May Florence Nightingale change your life, as she has mine.”

-Barbara Dossey
