i'm having a little trouble understanding exactly what kind of prioritizing and delegation questions you might be looking for. this is a link to some questions regarding the issues of prioritizing and delegating tasks
to subordinate workers:
- points to ponder when considering delegation and nursing management of personnel. from the anderson nclex-rn review. this is more about delegation and prioritization of nursing task involving patients.
however, when it comes to figuring out how to answer the application type questions on nclex which are based on prioritizing, it has to do with knowing and understanding the steps of the nursing process. you have to know them:
- nursing diagnosis
determine where the situation you have been given lies within the steps of the nursing process. sometimes a question is as easy as having to assess the patient first before answering anything further on a question. other times, the question already has you in the implementation (nursing intervention) area and wants to know what is your top priority of intervention to get done at that point. with those questions, you really need to know the signs and symptoms of the condition being asked about and the order in which the symptoms get worse and worse. that is something you can only learn from studying the problems and complications a patient can develop.
do you have a good nclex study reference. saunders comprehensive review for the nclex-rn examination
