NUR 6670 Mid-Term Exam Latest Update 2020 ● Question 1 0 out of 1 points Sally is a 54-year-old female who presents for care at the urging of her employer.

She has not adapted well, and her resulting anxiety is almost prohibitive of functioning in her role. During her interview, Sally is very somber and serious, and is clearly having difficulty with this change. She is distraught over the potential of not being able to do her job well and meet her immediate supervisor’s expectations.
