I dont really want to answer it with UK legislation in mind. Any ideas?
I was asked this on a phone interview for a nurse grad position a month or two ago. I quoted Nurses Act, Nurses Code of Practice 2000, ANMC guidelines relating to Code of Ethics, Professional Conduct and National Competency Standards for Registered Nursing. I also made reference to the fact that there may be state or commonwealth laws that also affect a nurses practice but as a UK trained nurse I could not go into great detail. They seemed fairly happy with it all & i must have done okay cos I got offered a position.
Good luck, hope u get an interview
