BAH Study Questions Test 8 Ch 56, 57, 58, 59 Chapter 56 1. A school nurse is presenting information on human development and sexuality. When describing the role of hormones in sexual development, which hormone does the nurse teach the class is the most important one for developing and maintaining the female reproductive organs? A) Estrogen B) Progesterone C) Androgens D) Follicle-stimulating hormone Ans: A Feedback: Estrogens are responsible for developing and maintaining the female reproductive organs. Progesterone is the most important hormone for conditioning the endometrium in preparation for implantation of the fertilized ovum. Androgens, secreted by the ovaries in small amounts, are involved in the early development of the follicle and affect the female libido. Follicle-stimulating hormone is responsible for stimulating the ovaries to secrete estrogen. 2. The nurse is taking the sexual history of an adolescent who has come into the free clinic. What question best assesses the patients need for further information? A) Are you involved in an intimate relationship at this time? B) How many sexual partners have you had? C) What questions or concerns do you have about your sexual health? D) Have you ever been diagnosed with a sexually transmitted infection?

while obtaining a sexual history. None of the other listed questions are open-ended. 3. The nurse is being trained to perform assessment screenings for abuse on patients who come into the walk-in clinic where the nurse works. Which of the following assessment questions is most appropriate? A) Would you describe your relationship as healthy and functional? B) Have you ever been forced into sexual activity? C) Do you make your husband uncontrollably angry? D) How is conflict usually handled in your home? Ans: B Feedback: Asking about abuse directly is effective in identifying the presence of abuse and should be included in the health history of all women. Oblique questions that relate to the character of the relationship or conflict resolution are less useful clinically. Asking about making a partner angry is not an appropriate way to screen for family violence because it does not directly address the problem. 4. A premenopausal patient is complaining of vaginal spotting and sharp, colicky lower abdominal pain. She informs the nurse that her period is 2 weeks late. The nurse should recognize a need for this patient to be investigated for what health problem? A) Trichomonas vaginalis B) Ectopic pregnancy C) Cervical cancer D) Fibromyalgia Ans: B Feedback: Clinical symptoms of an ectopic pregnancy include delay in menstruation of 1 to 2 weeks, vaginal spotting, and sharp, colicky pain. Trichomonas vaginalis causes a vaginal infection. Cervical cancer and fibromyalgia do not affect menstruation.

    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.

    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.
