    Me neither, but I was forced to take it lol. I am surprised I'm doing good bc those questions are hard and some are stupid. My friends who took VATI said that nclex is so much easier compared to VATI....which makes me feel a little better

    lesson 4 psychosocial integrity - 80% 1st try (i'll go back & review rationale for correct and incorrect responses).

    @assess&safety1st - thank you! pre-test was pretty low. i find that studying with no distractions is a must. there's room for improvement with my results under management of care & health promotion and maintenance. content is what i lack.

    we can do this!

    @rn1mid: when choosing the best answer related to a psychosocial question...i would choose one that provides for the emotional, mental, social well-being of the patient...patient-centered responses that promote safety for the client and others, encourage self sufficiency and promote independence (i.e., by teaching, referring to social workers, support groups, etc).

    also, when answering these questions...i think in terms of:
    1.) how can i as a nurse provide a safe environment for this patient and others?
    2.) what can i do to help the patient become more self sufficient and encourage patient to participate in their care?

    this is where i place myself in a role as a teacher, guidance counselor, angel with a halo....all within the scope of nursing, of course.

    for other questions that does not have anything to do with above, then i would have to study content. hope this makes sense.
