How can a nursing test bank help me in school?

  Think about it like this. You have one text book in your class. So does your teacher. Each text book has one test bank that teachers use to test students with. This is the nursing test bank for the book you have. All authentic chapters and questions and answers are included.

Do I get to download this nursing test bank today?

Since we know that students want their files fast, we listened and made it exactly the way you want. So you can download your entire test bank today without waiting for it.

Is this site anonymous and discreet?

We try our best to give nursing students exactly what they want. So your order is 100 percent anonymous and discreet. We do not keep any logs of any kind on our website and use a 256 bit SSL encryption on our site which you can verify.

What if I order the wrong test bank?

As long as the file is not downloaded, we can give you the correct file. Please send us an email and we will send you the correct file right away.

Can I request a sample before I purchase to make sure its authentic?

Of coarse you can, samples are provided on this page as well. Please scroll down to view a sample. If it is not on this page, email us and we will send you a free sample chapter which you can view before your purchase.

What format are the nursing test banks in when I download them?

Most of the formats are going to be in a PDF format. We also have files in Microsoft Word. They can be viewed on your computer or phone.

Can I write a review and leave a testimonial on this site?

You certainly can. Please email us by sending an email to us. Many students send us emails thanking us for helping them.

Below you will find some free nursing test bank questions from this test bank:

  A) Helper T cells
  B) Regulatory T cells
  C) Cytotoxic T cells

13. A child’s thymus gland is fully formed and proportionately larger than an adult’s. Which of the following processes that contribute to immunity takes place in the thymus gland?
  A) Differentiation of B cells
  B) Production of natural killer (NK) cells
  C) Proliferation of T cells
  D) Filtration of antigens from the blood



14. A patient’s exposure to an antibiotic-resistant microorganism while in the hospital has initiated an immune response, a process that is mediated and regulated by cytokines. Which of the following statements is true of cytokines?
  A) They are stored in the peripheral lymphoid tissues until required.
  B) They have a long half-life that contributes to an ongoing immune response.
  C) They are normally released at cell-to-cell interfaces, binding to specific receptors.
  D) They are capable of performing phagocytosis in the response to viral invasion.



15. The entrance of a microbe into an individual’s vascular space has initiated opsonization. Which of the following processes is involved in opsonization?
  A) Stimulation of B cells by helper T cells
  B) Coating of a microbe to aid phagocyte recognition
  C) Release of proteins that stimulate cell production by the bone marrow
  D) Lysis of intracellular microbes by cytotoxic T cells



16. Bacteria on a sliver in a boy’s finger have initiated an adaptive immune response. The boy’s lymphocytes and antibodies recognize immunologically active sites on the bacterial surfaces known as:
  A) Toll-like receptors.
  B) opsonins.
  C) chemokines.
