MULTIPLE CHOICE
1.   A patient is diagnosed with asthma. The primary care nurse practitioner (NP) prescribes an inhaled corticosteroid and an inhaled bronchodilator medication and provides education about how to use inhalers.

ask the patient to describe how the medications have been used.

c.

review the symptoms of an acute asthma exacerbation with the patient.

teach the patient to use the albuterol more often and order an oral steroid.

2.   A patient who has recently developed prediabetic symptoms is overweight and has a sedentary lifestyle. The primary care NP has prescribed an oral antidiabetic agent. The patient says, “I suppose I’ll need insulin like my mother and grandfather did.” To educate this patient about managing this disease, the NP should initially:
a.

determine how the patient feels about using insulin.

b.

provide written educational materials about diet and exercise.

c.

compare the actions of oral antidiabetic agents with insulin injections.

d.

ask the patient about previous experiences with medication side effects.

give the patient a copy of the medication package insert to read at home.

refer the patient to a website with information about hypertension drug therapy.

4.   The primary care NP is seeing a patient for a hospital follow-up after the patient has had a first myocardial infarction. The patient has a list of the prescribed medications and tells the NP that “no one explained anything about them.” The NP’s initial response should be to:
a.

ask the patient to describe the medication regimen.

b.

ask the patient to make a list of questions about the medications.

c.

determine what the patient understands about coronary artery disease.

d.
