MULTIPLE CHOICE
1. A staff nurse completes orientation to a psychiatric unit. This nurse may expect an advanced
practice nurse to perform which additional intervention?
a Conduct mental health
assessments.
c Establish therapeutic
relationships.
b Prescribe psychotropic
medication.
d Individualize nursing care plans.
ANS: B
In most states, prescriptive privileges are granted to masters-prepared nurse practitioners who
have taken special courses on prescribing medication. The nurse prepared at the basic level is
permitted to perform mental health assessments, establish relationships, and provide
individualized care planning.

2. When a nursing student expresses concerns about how mental health nurses lose all their
nursing skills, the best response by the mental health nurse is:
a Psychiatric nurses practice in safer environments than other specialties. Nurseto-patient ratios must be better because of the nature of the patients problems.
b Psychiatric nurses use complex communication skills as well as critical thinking
to solve multidimensional problems. I am challenged by those situations.
c
.
Thats a misconception. Psychiatric nurses frequently use high technology
monitoring equipment and manage complex intravenous therapies.
d
.
Psychiatric nurses do not have to deal with as much pain and suffering as
medical-surgical nurses do. That appeals to me.

d Psychiatric nurses do not have to deal with as much pain and suffering as
medical-surgical nurses do. That appeals to me.
ANS: B
The practice of psychiatric nursing requires a different set of skills than medical-surgical nursing,
though there is substantial overlap. Psychiatric nurses must be able to help patients with medical
as well as mental health problems, reflecting the holistic perspective these nurses must have.
Nurse-patient ratios and workloads in psychiatric settings have increased, just like other
specialties. Psychiatric nursing involves clinical practice, not just documentation. Psychosocial
pain and suffering are as real as physical pain and suffering.

3. When a new bill introduced in Congress reduces funding for care of persons with mental
illness, a group of nurses writes letters to their elected representatives in opposition to the
legislation. Which role have the nurses fulfilled?
a Recovery c
.
Advocacy
b Attending d
.
Evidence-based practice
ANS: C
An advocate defends or asserts anothers cause, particularly when the other person lacks the
ability to do that for self. Examples of individual advocacy include helping patients understand
their rights or make decisions. On a community scale, advocacy includes political activity, public
speaking, and publication in the interest of improving the human condition. Since funding is
necessary to deliver quality programming for persons with mental illness, the letter- writing
campaign advocates for that cause on behalf of patients who are unable to articulate their own
needs.

4. Which comment best indicates that a patient perceived the nurse was caring? My nurse:
a always asks me which type of juice I want to help me swallow my medication.
b explained my treatment plan to me and asked for my ideas about how to make it
better.
c spends time listening to me talk about my problems. That helps me feel like I
am not alone.
d told me that if I take all the medicines the doctor prescribes, then I will get
discharged sooner.
ANS: C
Caring evidences empathetic understanding as well as competency. It helps change pain and
suffering into a shared experience, creating a human connection that alleviates feelings of
isolation. The distracters give examples of statements that demonstrate advocacy or giving
advice.

REF: Page 7 |Page 10 TOP: Nursing Process: Evaluation
MSC: Client Needs: Psychosocial Integrity
5. Which assessment finding most clearly indicates that a patient may be experiencing a mental
illness? The patient:
a reports occasional sleeplessness and anxiety.
b
.
reports a consistently sad, discouraged, and hopeless mood
