Here is the weekly question posted on the NCSBN Learning Extension:

A nurse is performing CPR on an adult who had a cardiopulmonary arrest. Another nurse enters the room in response to the call for help. After checking the client’s pulse and respirations, what should be the function of the second nurse?

  1. “Relieve the nurse performing CPR.”
  2. “Go get the code cart.”
  3. “Participate with the compressions or breathing.”
  4. “Validate the patient’s advance directive.”

The correct answer is: 3 – Participate with the compressions or breathing
