7. What would be the most appropriate action for a nurse to take when helping a family who is in crisis when the husband/father of the family died suddenly? ( Select all that apply. ) While being an emotional support, bringing food, and volunteering to help with the funeral are all excellent community support tasks for a grieving family, the nurse’s responsibility is more to help the family be aware of resources, including helping them ask for and be willing to accept help during the crisis period. In crisis, the nurse can help the family identify its typical coping behaviors and support or encourage their use. Although the other offers (such as baby-sitting) might be helpful, the nurse must remain more a consultant than a direct caregiver. DIF: Cognitive Level: Analysis REF: p. 361

    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.
