ANS: 3
Washing and changing bed linens, mopping floors, and housekeeping tasks were included as part of the nurse's education. Immunizations did not exist at that time in history, and surgery was uncommon and very primitive with frequent poor outcomes. Thus assistants were rarely required and not part of nursing school. Plan of care considerations were not used until after the mid 1900s.
