The node-name function takes a node as its input argument and returns its QName. When the QName is represented as a string, it takes the form of prefix:localname if the node has a prefix, or localname if the node has no prefix. To obtain the namespace URI of a node, use the namespace-URI-from-QName function (in the library of QName-related functions).
