I just wanted to clarify this with what others learned because it has come up a few times in practice questions. I always thought the nursing assessment
order was standard and easy to remember. I even checked my health assessment book. The order for a regular assessment is Inspection, Palpation, Percussion, and then Auscultation. If it is an abdominal assessment, Auscultation is completed after inspection. Is this what others know to be true? Like I said, I double checked my health assessment book even but have seen different orders in the NCSBN review. Thanks in advance.
