pharmacologists did begin to synthesize drugs in the laboratory in the 20th century; and modern pharmacology
began in the 1800s, not 1600s. The first drugs included morphine and cocaine, but not penicillin. Little is known
about pharmacology during the Dark Ages.
Question 2
Type: MCSA
Although all areas of medicine, including pharmacology, have made great advances in the last century, the early
roots of pharmacology still apply for the nurse and other health professionals. What were the early roots of
pharmacology?
1. Applying products to relieve human suffering
2. Creating new drugs as quickly as possible
3. Finding medicinal alternatives to plants
4. Understanding how drugs take their effects
Correct Answer: 1
Rationale 1: The early root of pharmacology was to relieve human suffering.
Rationale 2: The early root of pharmacology was not to create new drugs quickly.
Rationale 3: Early pharmacology involved using plants to relieve symptoms of suffering.
Rationale 4: The early root of pharmacology was not to understand how drugs take their effects.
Global Rationale: The early root of pharmacology was to relieve human suffering, not to create new drugs
quickly or to understand how drugs take their effects. Early pharmacology did involve using plants to relieve
symptoms of suffering.
Question 3
Type: MCSA
Although many substances can be considered drugs, which drug definition is the most appropriate?
1. Any substance that is found in nature or that normally occurs in the body
2. Any substance that is synthesized and tested in the laboratory setting
3. Any substance that is taken to prevent, cure, or reduce symptoms of a medical condition
4. Any substance that can be isolated from natural substances in nature
Correct Answer: 3
Rationale 1: A drug is not a substance that is found in nature or that normally occurs in the human body.
Rationale 2: A drug is not only a substance that is synthesized and tested.
Rationale 3: A drug is considered to be any substance that is taken to prevent, cure, or reduce symptoms of a
medical condition.
Rationale 4: A drug is not only a substance isolated from natural substances.
Global Rationale: A drug is considered to be any substance that is taken to prevent, cure, or reduce symptoms of
a medical condition. A drug is not a substance that is found in nature or that normally occurs in the human body; it
is not any substance that is synthesized and tested in the laboratory setting, nor is it only a substance isolated from
natural substances.
Question 4
Type: MCSA
Pharmacotherapy is a critical intervention for many conditions, and a key part of nursing intervention. Which
statement best describes pharmacotherapy?
1. The study of medicine and drug therapy
2. The application of natural substances to cure diseases
3. The application of drugs for the prevention and treatment of disease and human suffering
4. Understanding the difference between trade and generic medications
Correct Answer: 3
Rationale 1: Pharmacotherapy is not just the study of medicine and drug therapy.
Rationale 2: Pharmacotherapy is not the application of natural substances to cure diseases.
Rationale 3: Pharmacotherapy is the application of drugs for the prevention and treatment of diseases and human
suffering.
Rationale 4: Pharmacotherapy comprises more than understanding the difference between trade and generic
drugs.
Global Rationale: Pharmacotherapy is the application of drugs for the prevention and treatment of diseases and
human suffering. It is not just the study of medicine and drug therapy nor is it the application of natural substances
to cure diseases. Pharmacotherapy comprises more than understanding the difference between trade and generic
drugs.
Question 5
Type: MCSA
Which principle best describes what the nurse is expected to understand when administering medication to a
client?
1. The pharmacotherapeutics for all of the medications
2. The most common side effects of the drug’s prototype
3. The trade and generic names for all of the medications
4. The cost of the drug therapy
Correct Answer: 1
Rationale 1: The nurse should understand the pharmacotherapeutics for all medications that the client is
receiving.
Rationale 2: The nurse should understand much more about a drug than just the common side effects of the
drug’s prototype.
Rationale 3: The nurse should understand much more about a drug than just its trade and generic names.
Rationale 4: The cost of drug therapy is not a principle of drug administration.
Global Rationale: The nurse is expected to understand the pharmacotherapeutics for all medications that the
client is receiving. The nurse should understand much more than the common side effects of the drug’s prototype
and the trade and generic names. The cost of drug therapy is not a principle of drug administration.
Question 6
Type: MCSA
The Food and Drug Administration classifies drugs by category, and these categories and drugs are found in the
“Orange Book.” To find out which drugs treat hypertension, the nurse would look under which classification?
1. Cardiac
2. Pharmacologic
3. Disease
4. Therapeutic
Correct Answer: 4
Rationale 1: There is no cardiac classification.
Rationale 2: The pharmacologic category describes how the drug works, not what condition the drug treats.
However, the nurse could determine what condition the drug treats by knowing how the drug works.
Rationale 3: Disease is not a category.
Rationale 4: The nurse would look under the therapeutic category to find out what a drug will treat.
Global Rationale: To find out which drugs treat hypertension, the nurse would look under the therapeutic
category to find out what a drug will treat. The pharmacologic category describes how the drug works, not what
condition the drug treats. However, the nurse could determine what condition the drug treats by knowing how the
drug works. Disease is not a category and there is no cardiac classification.
Question 7
Type: MCSA
The nurse is creating a teaching plan for a client on the cardiac unit and is researching the medications the client is
currently taking to understand how each drug produces its effects in the body. To find this information, the nurse
looks up which classification for each medication?
1. Therapeutic
2. Cardiac
3. Disease
4. Pharmacologic
Correct Answer: 4
Rationale 1: The therapeutic classification describes what condition is being treated by a drug, not how the drug
works in the body.
Rationale 2: There is no cardiac category.
Rationale 3: There is no disease category.
Rationale 4: The nurse researches the pharmacologic classification to discover how a drug works in the body.
Global Rationale: The nurse researches the pharmacologic classification to discover how a drug works in the
body. The therapeutic classification describes what condition is being treated by a drug, not how the drug works in
the body. There is no cardiac or disease category.
Question 8
Type: MCMA
A prototype drug is a single drug in a class and can be compared with all other medications in the class. What are
the benefits for the nurse to studying the prototype drug in predicting characteristics of other drugs in the same
class?
Note: Credit will be given only if all correct choices and no incorrect choices are selected.
Standard Text: Select all that apply.
1. Which drugs have the most favorable safety profile
2. Their therapeutic indications
3. Their actions and adverse effects
4. Their specific clinical use
5. Contraindications specific to any drug in that group
Correct Answer: 2,3,4
Rationale 1: The prototype drug does not provide a safety profile of other drugs in the same class.
Rationale 2: Studying the therapeutic indications of a prototype drug may allow the nurse to predict actions and
adverse effects of other drugs in the same group.
Rationale 3: By studying the prototype, the nurse can predict the actions and adverse effects of other drugs in the
same class.
Rationale 4: Studying the prototype drug may allow the nurse to predict the clinical use of another drug in the
same class.
Rationale 5: Contraindications may differ for specific drugs in the same class as the prototype.
Global Rationale: Studying the therapeutic indications of a prototype drug may allow the nurse to predict actions
and adverse effects of other drugs in the same group. The nurse can also predict the actions, adverse effects, and
clinical uses of other drugs in the same class. The prototype drug does not provide a safety profile of other drugs
in the same class. Contraindications may differ for specific drugs in the same class as the prototype.
Question 9
Type: MCMA
Chemical names are assigned for each drug. What are the major reasons for why nurses usually do not use the
chemical name of the drugs?
Note: Credit will be given only if all correct choices and no incorrect choices are selected.
Standard Text: Select all that apply.
1. They are usually not brief or easy to remember.
2. They are often difficult to pronounce.
3. There is no standard for assigning names.
4. They do not explain the nature of the drug.
5. There is only one chemical name for each drug.
Correct Answer: 1,2
Rationale 1: Chemical names are usually not brief or easy to remember.
Rationale 2: Chemical names are often difficult to pronounce.
Rationale 3: Chemical names are assigned by a standard nomenclature.
Rationale 4: Chemical names do explain the nature of the drug.
Rationale 5: While it is true each drug has only one chemical name, this is not one of the reasons nurses do not
use the chemical name.
Global Rationale: Nurses typically do not use the chemical names of drugs because they are not brief or easy to
remember and they are often difficult to pronounce. Chemical names are assigned by a standard nomenclature and
they do explain the nature of the drug. While it is true each drug has only one chemical name, this is not one of
the reasons nurses do not use the chemical name.
Question 10
Type: MCSA
The trade name for a drug is usually selected to be short and easy to remember. What is the reason the nurse does
not use the trade name for a drug?
1. There are no trade names for combination drugs.
2. A drug can have more than one trade name.
3. The trade name will expire and no longer be used.
4. A company might change the trade name for a drug.
Correct Answer: 2
Rationale 1: There are trade names for combination drugs.
Rationale 2: A drug can have more than one trade name.
Rationale 3: The trade name does not expire and will continue to be used.
Rationale 4: Companies usually do not change the trade name of a drug.
Global Rationale: Nurses typically do not use the trade name of medications because a drug can have more than
one trade name. There are trade names for combination drugs. Trade names do not expire, and they will continue
to be used. Companies usually do not change the trade name of a drug.
Question 11
Type: MCSA
Nursing students must memorize the generic names of drugs. What is the primary reason that generic names are
used by health care providers over chemical and trade names?
1. A drug can have more than one chemical and trade name.
2. There is only one generic name for each drug, and it is easier to remember than the chemical name.
3. The trade names do not reflect the action of the drug as the generic name does.
4. Nursing students should actually strive to learn both the generic and trade names to avoid confusion with
clients.
Correct Answer: 2
Rationale 1: A drug has only one chemical name; it can have multiple trade names.
Rationale 2: Each drug does have only one generic name.
Rationale 3: The generic name of a drug might not reflect the action of the drug.
Rationale 4: Nursing students should learn the generic name of a drug, since there can be multiple trade names.
Global Rationale: Generic drug names are typically used because each drug only has one generic name, while it
can have multiple trade names. Chemical names are not often used because they are hard to remember and
pronounce. The generic name of a drug might not reflect the action of the drug.
Question 12
Type: MCSA
Which is one of the main reasons a pharmaceutical company might be granted an exclusive period to market and
distribute a new drug?
1. It allows the company to recoup the cost of research and development.
2. It allows consumers to get used to the trade name of the drug.
3. It allows all the adverse effects to be discovered.
4. Without competition, consumer savings are significant.
Correct Answer: 1
Rationale 1: Exclusivity allows a pharmaceutical company a period of time to recoup the costs of research and
development of a drug.
Rationale 2: The period of exclusivity is not granted so that consumers will become familiar with a trade name.
Rationale 3: Adverse effects are discovered during the clinical drug trials, not during the period of exclusivity.
Rationale 4: Competition between pharmaceutical companies actually results in consumer savings.
Global Rationale: Exclusivity allows a pharmaceutical company a period of time to recoup the costs of research
and development of a drug. Exclusivity is not granted so that consumers will become familiar with a trade name.
Adverse effects are discovered during the clinical drug trials, not during the period of exclusivity. Competition
between pharmaceutical companies actually results in consumer savings.
Question 13
Type: MCSA
Bioavailability of a drug can be affected by many factors. Which factor does not affect the bioavailability of a
drug?
1. Inert ingredients
2. Rate of absorption
3. Safety margin
4. Tablet compression
Correct Answer: 3
Rationale 1: Inert ingredients can affect the bioavailability of a drug.
Rationale 2: Rate of absorption can affect the bioavailability of a drug.
Rationale 3: Safety margin will not affect the bioavailability of a drug.
Rationale 4: Tablet compression can affect the bioavailability of a drug.
Global Rationale: Safety margin will not affect the bioavailability of a drug. Inert ingredients, the safety margin,
and the tablet compression can all affect the bioavailability of a drug.
Question 14
Type: MCSA
Bioavailability can be different between the generic and trade versions of a drug. When is it not appropriate for a
generic drug to be substituted for a trade version?
1. The trade version costs the same as the generic.
2. The time for onset of action is different between the generic and trade versions.
3. The inert ingredients are different in the generic and trade versions.
4. The drug is a critical care drug, or one with a narrow safety margin.
Correct Answer: 4
Rationale 1: While the cost of the trade version is usually greater than that of the generic version of the same
drug, cost does not affect bioavailability.
Rationale 2: The time of onset of action is not always an issue in using the generic over the trade version.
Rationale 3: The difference in inert ingredients is not always an issue in substitution of a generic over the trade
version.
Rationale 4: The nurse should not substitute a generic drug for a trade version if the drug is a critical care drug or
has a narrow safety margin.
Global Rationale: The nurse should not substitute a generic drug for a trade version if the drug is a critical care
drug or has a narrow safety margin. While the cost of the trade version is usually greater than that of the generic
version of the same drug, cost does not affect bioavailability. The time of onset of action is not always an issue in
using the generic over the trade version. The difference in inert ingredients is not always an issue in substitution
of a generic over the trade version.
Question 15
Type: MCSA
Before administering a drug, what pertinent information must the nurse obtain from the client?
1. Physical assessment, medical history, previous medications, and learning capabilities
2. Medical history, growth and development level of client, and ability to pay for the medication
3. Medical history, client’s growth and development level, and potential adverse effects of the medication
4. Medical history, physical assessment, disease process, and learning needs
Correct Answer: 1
Rationale 1: Physical assessment, medical history, previous medications, and learning capabilities are all
important pieces of information the nurse should have prior to administering drugs to clients.
Rationale 2: Medical history and growth and development are important pieces of information. However, while
the client’s ability to pay for the drug is important prescription information, it is not necessary for the nurse to
know this prior to administering a drug.
Rationale 3: The medical history and growth and development information are important but the nurse would not
obtain information regarding potential adverse effects of the medication from the client.
Rationale 4: The medical history, physical assessment, disease process, and learning needs are all important
information the nurse needs. However, the nurse would not obtain information about the disease process from the
client.
Global Rationale: Physical assessment, medical history, previous medications, and learning capabilities are all
important pieces of information the nurse should have prior to administering drugs to clients. Medical history and
growth and development are important pieces of information. However, while the client’s ability to pay for the
drug is important prescription information, it is not necessary for the nurse to know this prior to administering a
drug. The nurse would not obtain information regarding potential adverse effects of the medication or the disease
process from the client.
