Chapter 13 1. The nurse is giving a community presentation about adolescent pregnancy. Which presentation statement most accurately reflects a challenge of pregnancy associated with early adolescence? 1. “Pregnancy is less likely to be related to an intimate relationship.” Rationale 1: For early adolescents, pregnancy is probably not the result of an intimate relationship. 2. The school sexual health clinic nurse has female adolescent students waiting to be seen. Which student should be seen first? 3. 16-year-old who had Chlamydia treated two weeks ago Rationale 3: This patient is the top priority. Having had Chlamydia, a sexually transmitted infection, indicates that the patient is sexually active and not using a barrier method of birth control. This patient is at risk for pregnancy and another STI. 3. While developing a conference for adolescents, the nurse prepares a handout describing socioeconomic and cultural factors that contribute to adolescent pregnancy. Which information should the nurse include in the handout? 3. Poverty is a major risk factor for teen pregnancy. Rationale 3: Poverty is a major risk factor for teen pregnancy, as 85% of births to unmarried teens occur among those adolescents from poor to low-income families. 4. The nurse is working with a group of pregnant teens. Which statement indicates that teaching has been successful? 1. “Pregnant teens are more likely to quit school prior to graduation.” Rationale 1: Patients who give birth the first time as adolescents are more likely to have lower educational levels, including a higher rate of dropping out of high school and not attending college or vocational training.

    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.
