Start with light palpation in the right lower quadrant. The nurse is preparing to assess a client’s visual acuity. How should the nurse proceed? Use the Snellen chart positioned at 20 feet . Snellen alphabet chart is the most commonly used and most accurate measure of visual acuity. The confrontation test is a gross measure of peripheral vision. A nurse is examining the eyes of a client who was accidentally sprayed in the face with paint. Which assessment would the nurse interpret as a normal finding? (Select all that apply.) eyelashes present along the margins of each eye white sclera with a clear cornea The sclera should appear white and the corneas should be clear. Eyelashes are present along the margins of each eye. There should not be any drainage, tears, or swelling. The nurse is auscultating the anterior chest of a client and hears gurgles. What is the nurse's appropriate action? Ask the client to cough and auscultate the anterior chest again. Asking the client to cough or breathe deeply if crackles or gurgles are audible is a method that helps clear the air passages and open the alveoli.

    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.
