Well, I am just getting ready to start my psych rotation. I am having problems with the therapeutic communications.
A friend of mine, who graduated in 2001, told me to pick the answer I think is right and then circle the EXACT opposite.
For example, A lady has a 2 hr. handwashing ritual that is interfering with her nutritional status [breakfast]. What do you as the nurse do?
a.) Get her up earlier, so she can do her ritual and still eat breakfast on time,
B.) Try to help her overcome her compulsion.
I answered b.) and missed it!!!!
The correct answer according to the Hesi test is a.)!!!!
So, my advice is read the questions, answer them they way you normally would, then pick the exact opposite answer.
This is what I plan on doing!!
Hope this helps!!
In His Grace,
Failure is NOT an option!!
