Hurst -NCLEX Test Taking Strategy Questions- with 100% verified answers & rationales-2022

Document Content and Description Below

1. The nurse is providing post-operative care to a craniotomy client. Diabetes insipidus is suspected when the client’s urine output suddenly increases significantly. Which action takes highest prio... rity? o 1. Monitoring urine output o 2. Checking pulse o 3. Checking blood pressure o 4. Assessing level of consciousness Rationale: 3.
