Chapter 40: Self-Concept - Page 1553 Question 2 See full question The nurse works in the emergency department and feels like she is becoming somewhat jaded about her nursing practice. The nurse talks to her supervisor about this and he suggests making some goals for enhancing her self-concept as a professional nurse. Which of the following would be an important goal to establish that would build up the nursing self-concept? You Selected: Avoid weaknesses until they become strengths. Correct response: Schedule time every day to meet personal needs. Explanation: These are goals that will enhance a nurse's professional self concept: • Identify basic unmet human needs, exploring positive means to meet these needs. • Schedule time every day to meet personal needs. • Assess the effect of feedback from significant others on self-esteem. • Describe personal strengths accurately. • Develop a realistic plan to achieve goals for personal growth and development. • Don’t dwell on errors; remember them so you don’t repeat them, but don’t make remembering them a goal. • Pursuing a higher degree may be a worthy goal, but it will not enhance self- concept right now. • Avoiding weaknesses will not make them become strengths. Reference: Taylor, C., et al. Fundamentals of Nursing , 8th ed. Philadelphia: Wolters Kluwer Health/Lippincott Williams & Wilkins; 2015, p. 1558. Chapter 40: Self-Concept - Page 1558 Question 3 See full question A nurse is developing a plan of care for an older adult to promote self-esteem.

You Selected: Explain that his life experience will help to develop a plan of care. Correct response: Explain that his life experience will help to develop a plan of care. Explanation: Using older people's life experiences to shape the plan of care shows value for who they are (unconditional affirmation). While getting older is part of life it does not mean they need to dwell on death or surround themselves with older people. While it is appropriate to encourage older clients to try new things, it is not appropriate to encourage them to be like younger people but rather find hobbies that help define who they are at this stage of life.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
