NRNP 6635 Week 6 Eating Sleeping and Elimination Disorders
NRNP 6635 Week 6 Eating, Sleeping, and Elimination Disorders
The process of assessment and diagnosis is complex. At the initial meeting, clients may want to vent about multiple areas in their lives, and they may not necessarily understand the assessment process or what kind of information the advanced practice nurse needs to elicit to diagnose. PMHNPs must strike a balance between keeping the assessment focused and structuring it in such a way that clients are encouraged to paint a complete picture of their chief complaint and history of present illness. If a client says that he or she is having a hard time dealing with family, difficulty in relationships, not eating regularly, or not sleeping, counselors must know how to listen and ask questions that can pull more information needed for an accurate diagnosis.
