    How would you best manage this patient?

    We need to see a good faith effort on your part tp attempt to answer the question before the AN community will spitball ideas.

    Are you an actual nurse (as your name would imply) or are you a student?

    What do you think his problem is? Why do you think he's taking the nitroglycerin? Answering those questions should steer you in the right direction of how to take care of the patient.

    Right, it could be either, but your job isn't to diagnose. You need to assess the patient and provide the necessary interventions. What would you do?

    The question isn't asking for a diagnosis it is asking for nursing care.

    What is the first thing you do for a patient having chest pain?
    What are the questions you ask?
