I appreciate any help that anyone can give me. I am suppose to write a general survey on assessment findings. On physical presence I am suppose to write on my clients "stated age vs. apparent age". How do I write that? For example, I want to write "client appears stated age of 26". The only problem is is that my instructors do not want me to use the word 'appears'. What do I say instead?

When I do my history and physical about the patient, I always write, "patient appears stated age".
Your instructor is out of touch with the words used by most all nurses be they RN, NP as well as the physicians.
