NCLEX Practice Question of the Week

leave a comment »

Here is the weekly question posted on the NCSBN Learning Extension:

A client has been scheduled for a transesophageal echocardiography (TEE). Prior to the procedure, which activity could be delegated to the unlicensed assistive personnel (UAP)?

  1. Provide basic instructions about the procedure
  2. Obtain a signed consent
  3. Remove the pitcher of water from the bedside table
  4. Assess the client’s psychological state


The correct answer is: 3 – Remove the pitcher of water from the bedside table

It’s all about knowing roles.

Answer Choice 1 –  WRONG. Instruction = teaching. This is done by the nurse.
Answer Choice 2 –  WRONG. Obtaining consents is done by the physician. Nurses can witness.
Answer Choice 3 –  CORRECT. This is the only answer choice that lists an action that can be done by a UAP.
Answer Choice 4 –  WRONG. This is assessment, which is also done by the nurse.
