CNA Practice Test &#; Basic Nursing Skills #3

Certified Nursing Assistants 

Certified Nursing Assistants are crucial members of any health care team. They are continuously working under the direction of a nurse. (RN or LPN/LVN) CNAs also provide hands on nursing care to patients, residents, clients and customers in various health care settings. CNAs usually provide assistance with self-care, such as bathing, dressing, eating, toileting and oral care to patients who are unable to complete these tasks on their own. CNAs are often often the staff member, who will read the patient’s vital signs, weigh the patients and they measure the patient’s height.

CNA exams are normally taken in two parts. There is a written component and a hands-on skills component.  The written component of the test is typically in a multiple-choice format and will evaluate the CNAs knowledge of the subjects that all CNAs are expected to know.

Anyone writing a CNA exam must have a high school diploma or GED.

    In the Nursing Care Plan you note it is written; “O2 per N/C @3L, Orthopnea pos. as needed”. As a CNA you know this means

    Incorrect

    This nursing care plan means that the client is receiving oxygen at a constant rate of 3 liters per minute, using a nasal cannula. If the client has difficulty breathing, the CNA can assist the client to sit in a Fowler&#;s (upright) position. Every facility has a list of approved abbreviations. The CNA should become familiar with these, for reading care plans and for doing documentation.

  3. 3. Question

    In report the nurse aide is told that one of her patients has been ordered NPO after midnight. The aide should

    Incorrect

    NPO is a common medical term that means the client can not eat or drink anything, including water or ice chips. A doctor orders a patient to be NPO at midnight for situations such as before surgery or certain lab work. The nurse aide can provide mouth care for a client who is NPO. Placing a &#;NPO&#; sign over the client&#;s bed and on the client&#;s door will remind all staff members not to give the client anything to eat or drink.

    Post-partum is the medical term that means &#;after giving birth.&#; The prefix &#;post&#; always means after in any medical term. For example, post-operatively means &#;after surgery&#; and post-discharge means &#;after leaving treatment.&#; The term &#;partum&#; refers to giving birth.

  9. 9. Question

    A rectal temperature is the most accurate, but needs to be done correctly. After placing the client in Sim&#;s position, lubricate the thermometer and gently insert it about one or two inches into the rectum. Hold the thermometer in place for two minutes to prevent it being pushed out or advancing into the rectum. After withdrawing it, wipe it with a gauze pad, read the temperature, and place the thermometer in the &#;used&#; container.

  10. Question

    Meal trays have arrived. Before serving each tray the nurse aide should

    Incorrect

    Before serving a meal tray, always check the client&#;s ID band or tag and match it with the correct tray. Some clients have special diets, severe food allergies, or strict fluid restrictions. While it can be tempting to skip this step in a long-term care facility, the nurse aide is legally responsible for verifying the identity of each client before serving food or giving care.

  11. Question

    Incorrect

    The effects of smoking can cause many diseases and medical complications. While cigarette smoking is the main cause of lung cancer, it also causes other lung conditions such as COPD, emphysema, and pneumonia.

    Incorrect
    An acute event is a new or sudden situation that is expected to resolve. Examples are a broken bone, a head cold or the flu, or an asthma attack. In this question, Mrs. Hernandez has an acute condition because she will be leaving the long-term care facility after she finishes rehabilitation. A chronic condition develops slowly and continues to progress. Examples are heart disease, diabetes, and osteoporosis.
  15. Question

    A patient who was given insulin in the morning is pale and sweaty and appears confused two hours later. It would be helpful to find out whether the patient

    Incorrect

    Diabetic clients have a strict schedule regarding insulin injections and eating. Eating causes blood sugar to rise, and the insulin helps move it into the cells. Without food, the blood sugar drops quickly, causing a serious situation. Immediate treatment is necessary. Quickly check the client&#;s blood sugar and report it to the nurse. The client will need to eat 15 grams of glucose or a simple carbohydrate, such as 1/2 cup orange juice or a Tablespoon of sugar. The nurse aide should be aware of which clients are diabetic so that meals are served shortly after receiving insulin.

  16. Question

    A resident with an ileostomy evacuates feces through the

    Incorrect

    The ileum is the lowest part of the small intestine. An ileostomy is an opening in the abdomen that is made during surgery. The end of the ileum is placed outside the body and connected to a bag that collects the waste of the intestine. It is usually on the lower right side of the body.

  17. Question

    You are caring for Mr. Brown who has a diagnosis of COPD. His SpO2 is 82%. He is currently receiving O2 via Nasal Cannula @ 2 liters/min. What do you do?

    Incorrect

    The normal SpO2 range for a client with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is %. This is because oxygen reaches the lungs, but lung damage prevents oxygen from getting into the blood. Giving oxygen is carefully regulated for clients with COPD, with limits according to how the oxygen is delivered. Immediately report a low saturation to the nurse. Do not make any changes on your own.

  18. Question

    Which of the following should be reported immediately?

    Incorrect

    A low blood pressure (hypotension) is less than 90/ Only one of the numbers has to be lower to be considered hypotension. Some clients may have a normal blood pressure in the low range, but if there is a sudden drop from usual, immediately report it to the nurse.

  19. Question

    Incorrect

    The left Sim&#;s position is used for rectal examinations and administering enemas. The client lies on the left side, with the right knee and hip bent. It is also called the lateral recumbent or semiprone side position.

  20. Question

    The opening of the colostomy to the outside of the body is called the

    Incorrect

    A stoma is an artificial opening in the body, done during surgery. For a client with a colostomy, the surgeon brings the end of the colon through the abdomen and creates a mouthlike opening that will drain waste into a bag. A stoma can also be done for the bladder and for the ileum (the lowest part of the small intestine).

  21. Question

    The charge nurse has asked you to take Mrs. Shumway&#;s vital signs. You know you must first

    Incorrect
    Before providing any care, the nurse aide must follow all the standard steps in preparation. ALL of the steps must be taken before proceeding, not just one. Gather everything needed, so that you don&#;t have to leave the client&#;s room once you begin. Handwashing is always done before and after each client interaction. Knocking before entering the client&#;s room, introducing yourself, identifying the client, and explaining what you will be doing are also part of standard practice.
  22. Question

    To help ensure adequate circulation to prevent skin breakdown, you could

    Incorrect

    One of the primary responsibilities of a nurse aide is to monitor the client&#;s skin for any signs of breakdown. During baths, dressing, or position changes, inspect the skin for redness, pallor, warmth, or bruising.

    Incorrect

    Congestive heart failure is a chronic disease that happens when the heart becomes weak and is unable to pump efficiently. It is important to monitor the client&#;s weight, because sudden weight gain means that the client is retaining fluid. This puts a strain on the heart and lungs. The nurse aide should weigh the client every morning at the same time and record the weight. Notify the nurse of any sudden change.

  24. Question

    A patient has a diagnosis of psoriasis. Her nurse aide should

    Incorrect

    Auto-immune diseases are never contagious. They happen when the body&#;s defense (immune) system attacks its own healthy tissue by mistake. Besides psoriasis, other examples of an auto-immune disease are lupus, celiac disease, multiple sclerosis, and type 1 diabetes. Client care is the same as for any other client without an auto-immune disease.

  25. Question

    The recommended position for giving an enema is

    Incorrect

    The left Sim&#;s position is used for rectal examinations and administering enemas. The client lies on the left side, with the right knee and hip bent. It is also called the lateral recumbent or semiprone side position.

  26. Question

    Who orders a warm or cold application?

    Incorrect

    Incorrect

    The question is about HALF of a 6oz. glass. 15 oz. = cc. When converting ounces (oz.) to cubic centimeters (cc) remember that 1 oz. = 30 cc. Although an ounce is slightly more, the amounts are considered to be equal by doctors and pharmacists. Also, 1 cc = 1 ml.

  28. Question

    A patient complains that her hand hurts where the IV is running. The nurse assistant notices that the hand is puffy. The best thing to do is

    Incorrect

    Infiltration happens when the IV fluid leaks into the tissue because of a dislodged or misplaced IV catheter . The nurse assistant should monitor the IV site and report if it becomes swollen, cool to the touch, or painful. The skin near the IV site may look pale. Always be careful when moving or assisting a client with an IV to avoid pulling the line.

  29. Question

    The safest way to confirm a resident’s identity is

    Incorrect

  30. Question
