  1. Jay, a nurse on the medical-surgical unit, has been caring for a patient with chronic renal failure, congestive heart failure, and a history of myocardial infarctions. The client has been extremely irritable with the nursing staff. After working with the client for 4 days trying various strategies to help the client work through his anger, Jay asks to have another assignment when he comes back to work in 2 days. This depicts ____.
a. Active coping strategies
b. Active cognitive appraisal
c. Inactive cognitive appraisal
d. Inactive coping strategies




Inactive coping strategies focus on avoiding the stress because the nurse in this scenario is choosing to avoid caring for the client when returning to work. Active coping strategies work toward the stress. Active cognitive appraisal and inactive cognitive appraisal are distracters. Cognitive appraisal is the individual’s assessment of the stressor.

  1. A first-year nursing student has received a midterm grade of “D” and is disappointed. She says to the instructor, “I just don’t have enough time to do all the reading and assignments. I have to work, I have two children, I have to do grocery shopping, make the meals, and participate in a carpool, and I just don’t have enough time to study.” The nursing instructor suggests which of the following to her?
a. Set priorities.
b. Obtain counseling and tutoring.
c. Develop a time plan and schedule.
d. Drop out of school for the semester.




Often, management strategies surround the analysis, setting of priorities, internal motivation, and planning for effective time management. Developing action plans and schedules can help align time use better with desired outcomes. Although setting priorities is important, you have to go further to make it work by developing a time plan and schedule.

  1. In developing a “things to do list,” it is important to do which of the following?
a. Write down all tasks that need to be completed.
b. Arrange an order of priority.
c. Limit outside interruptions.
d. Color-code the list by category.




When writing a “things to do list,” it is unrealistic to write down all the tasks that need to be completed. However, it is important that the list be prioritized so that the most important or time-sensitive things are completed. Limiting outside interruptions will help complete the tasks on the list but is not essential when developing the list. Color coding could be helpful but the categories must have some significance, which is not stated in response d.

  1. A staff nurse has kept a time log to assist her in developing her time management skills. After a week, she reviews the log with her nurse manager and notices that there were several times that she was waiting for supplies and missing medications. The nurse manager suggests which of the following?
a. Notify the pharmacy and central supply that there are delays in supply delivery.
b. Gather supplies and check for the availability of medications so that they can be ordered prior to starting care.
c. Inform the prior shift that this is a problem.
d. Complete an occurrence report so that quality assurance will investigate the problem.




Changes in patient conditions and medical orders occur frequently, which require new or different equipment and medications to be added or changed. It is always best, particularly if it is known that there are discrepancies in this area, to check to see whether all needed supplies are available before initiating care. Complaining about it to those on prior shifts only causes a lack of cooperation and teamwork. This is not an appropriate use of an occurrence report.

d. Waiting until motivated to begin the task




Suggestions to overcome procrastination include examining motivation and personal benefit, confronting your fears, positively reframing the task, gathering information to complete the task, or delegating it.

  1. Reality shock ____.
a. Averts the potential for burnout
b. Can create feelings of elation
c. Occurs when transitioning from school to active practice
d. May result in depersonalization of the client




Reality shock occurs in new graduates transitioning from college to the work environment. Reality shock is a result of the incongruence in values and beliefs of two subcultures. Reality shock can create feelings of helplessness, powerlessness, frustration, and dissatisfaction. Apathy, alienation, job dissatisfaction, and depersonalization of clients are associated with burnout (Tarolli-Jager, 1994). Burnout can be a result of reality shock.

  1. A staff RN is writing an article for a prestigious nursing journal. The deadline is in 1 week and she is feeling overwhelmed about completing her work. She is unable to keep up with home management, and she is beginning to procrastinate on the project. She also has other responsibilities, such as taking her elderly mother grocery shopping and to health care appointments. She is married to a busy executive and has three children, all of whom are active in high school sports. Which of the following time management strategies would be helpful?
a. Break the project into smaller, manageable pieces.
b. Contact an Elderly Nurse Aide Helper program to assist with shopping.
c. Cut extra activities out of her schedule, such as her morning walk.
d. Delegate some of the household chores to her family.



ANS: A, B, D

Dividing the project into smaller manageable pieces will help make the project seem less overwhelming. Delegating other responsibilities such as housekeeping and taking her mother shopping also will relieve some of the burden she is experiencing. Exercise is important to help the nurse deal with stress and would not be wise to delete from her schedule, if possible.

c. Role overload
d. Role underload



ANS: A, B, C
