Question 1

Type: MCSA

A child has been diagnosed with a Wilms tumor and is being treated with chemotherapy. Prior to administering the chemotherapy, the nurse will determine if this child has any infection-fighting capability by monitoring the

1. Hemoglobin.

2. Red-blood-cell count.

3. Absolute neutrophil count (ANC).

4. Platelets.

Correct Answer: 3

Rationale 1: The absolute neutrophil count uses both the segmented (mature) and bands (immature) neutrophils as a measure of the bodys infection-fighting capability. Red-blood-cell count, hemoglobin, and platelets cannot determine infection-fighting capabilities.

Rationale 2: The absolute neutrophil count uses both the segmented (mature) and bands (immature) neutrophils as a measure of the bodys infection-fighting capability. Red-blood-cell count, hemoglobin, and platelets cannot determine infection-fighting capabilities.

Rationale 3: The absolute neutrophil count uses both the segmented (mature) and bands (immature) neutrophils as a measure of the bodys infection-fighting capability. Red-blood-cell count, hemoglobin, and platelets cannot determine infection-fighting capabilities.

Rationale 4: The absolute neutrophil count uses both the segmented (mature) and bands (immature) neutrophils as a measure of the bodys infection-fighting capability. Red-blood-cell count, hemoglobin, and platelets cannot determine infection-fighting capabilities.

Question 2

Type: MCSA

A child has cancer and has been treated with chemotherapy. The latest lab value indicates the white-blood-cell count is very low. The nurse would expect to administer

1. Filgrastim (Neupogen).

2. Ondansetron (Zofran).

3. Oprelvekin (Neumega).

4. Epoetin alfa (human recombinant erythropoietin).

Correct Answer: 1

Rationale 1: Filgrastim (Neupogen) increases production of neutrophils by the bone marrow. Ondansetron (Zofran) is an antiemetic, oprelvekin (Neumega) increases platelets, and epoetin alfa (human recombinant erythropoietin) stimulates red-blood-cell (RBC) production.

Rationale 2: Filgrastim (Neupogen) increases production of neutrophils by the bone marrow. Ondansetron (Zofran) is an antiemetic, oprelvekin (Neumega) increases platelets, and epoetin alfa (human recombinant erythropoietin) stimulates red-blood-cell (RBC) production.

Rationale 3: Filgrastim (Neupogen) increases production of neutrophils by the bone marrow. Ondansetron (Zofran) is an antiemetic, oprelvekin (Neumega) increases platelets, and epoetin alfa (human recombinant erythropoietin) stimulates red-blood-cell (RBC) production.

Question 3

Type: MCSA

A preschool child is being seen in the clinic, and the nurse anticipates a diagnosis of cancer. The nurse prepares for the common reaction preschool-age children often have to a diagnosis of cancer, which is

1. Acceptance, especially if able to discuss the disease with children their own age.

2. Thoughts that they caused their illness and are being punished.

3. Understanding of what cancer is and how it is treated.

4. Unawareness of the illness and its severity.

Correct Answer: 2

Rationale 1: Preschool-age children may think they caused their illness. Adolescents find contact with others who have gone through their experience helpful. School-age children can understand a diagnosis of cancer. Infants and toddlers are unaware of the severity of the disease.

Rationale 2: Preschool-age children may think they caused their illness. Adolescents find contact with others who have gone through their experience helpful. School-age children can understand a diagnosis of cancer. Infants and toddlers are unaware of the severity of the disease.

Question 4

Type: MCSA

The nurse is monitoring the urine specific gravity and pH on a child receiving chemotherapy. The nurse will try to maintain the urine values at

1. Spec gravity 1.030; pH 6.

2. Spec gravity 1.030; pH 7.5.

3. Spec gravity 1.005; pH 6.

4. Spec gravity 1.005; pH 7.5.

Correct Answer: 4

Rationale 1: Because the breakdown of malignant cells releases intracellular components into the blood and electrolyte imbalance causes metabolic acidosis, the urine specific gravity should remain at less than 1.010 and the pH at 7 to 7.5. A specific gravity higher than 1.010 can mean fluid intake is not high enough, and a pH of less than 7 means acidosis.

Rationale 2: Because the breakdown of malignant cells releases intracellular components into the blood and electrolyte imbalance causes metabolic acidosis, the urine specific gravity should remain at less than 1.010 and the pH at 7 to 7.5. A specific gravity higher than 1.010 can mean fluid intake is not high enough, and a pH of less than 7 means acidosis.

Rationale 3: Because the breakdown of malignant cells releases intracellular components into the blood and electrolyte imbalance causes metabolic acidosis, the urine specific gravity should remain at less than 1.010 and the pH at 7 to 7.5.

Question 5

Type: MCSA

The antiemetic drug ondansetron (Zofran) is being administered to a child receiving chemotherapy. It should be administered

1. Only if the child experiences nausea.

2. After the chemotherapy has been administered.

3. Before chemotherapy administration as a prophylactic measure.

4. Never; this antiemetic is not effective for controlling nausea and vomiting associated with chemotherapy.

Correct Answer: 3

Rationale 1: The antiemetic ondansetron (Zofran) should be administered before chemotherapy as a prophylactic measure. Giving it after the child has nausea or at the end of chemotherapy treatment does not help with preventing nausea. It is the drug of choice for controlling nausea caused by chemotherapy agents.

Rationale 2: The antiemetic ondansetron (Zofran) should be administered before chemotherapy as a prophylactic measure. Giving it after the child has nausea or at the end of chemotherapy treatment does not help with preventing nausea. It is the drug of choice for controlling nausea caused by chemotherapy agents.

Rationale 3: The antiemetic ondansetron (Zofran) should be administered before chemotherapy as a prophylactic measure.

Question 6

Type: MCSA

A child has thrombocytopenia secondary to chemotherapy treatments. The nurse should not

1. Administer intramuscular injections (IM).

2. Perform oral hygiene.

3. Monitor intake and output.

4. Use palpation as a component of assessment.

Correct Answer: 1

Rationale 1: When the child is thrombocytopenic (decreased platelets) from chemotherapy, the nurse should not administer IM injections because of the risk of bleeding. Oral hygiene care should be done with a soft toothbrush and intake and output monitored for any abnormalities. Gentle palpation should still be included in physical assessments.

Rationale 2: When the child is thrombocytopenic (decreased platelets) from chemotherapy, the nurse should not administer IM injections because of the risk of bleeding. Oral hygiene care should be done with a soft toothbrush and intake and output monitored for any abnormalities. Gentle palpation should still be included in physical assessments.

Rationale 3: When the child is thrombocytopenic (decreased platelets) from chemotherapy, the nurse should not administer IM injections because of the risk of bleeding.

Question 7

Type: SEQ

A child undergoing chemotherapeutic treatment for cancer is being admitted to the hospital for fever of 102 degrees F and possible sepsis. Cultures, antibiotics, and acetaminophen (Tylenol) along with bed rest have been ordered for this child. Place the following steps in order from first to last.

Standard Text: Click and drag the options below to move them up or down.

Choice 1. Administer the antibiotics.

Choice 2. Administer the acetaminophen (Tylenol).

Choice 3. Obtain the cultures.

Choice 4. Ensure the child has bed rest.

Correct Answer: 2,3,1,4

Rationale 1: Give acetaminophen (Tylenol) first to decrease discomfort and reduce fever. Obtain the cultures next because management of infections is critical, and since a child on chemotherapy has lowered immune status, unusual agents can be identified. Cultures can help identify the causative agents before treatment is started. Give the antibiotics next, as an infection can seriously impact the child who is receiving chemotherapy. Finally, provide comfort followed by bed rest to allow the child to rest.

Rationale 2: Give acetaminophen (Tylenol) first to decrease discomfort and reduce fever. Obtain the cultures next because management of infections is critical, and since a child on chemotherapy has lowered immune status, unusual agents can be identified. Cultures can help identify the causative agents before treatment is started. Give the antibiotics next, as an infection can seriously impact the child who is receiving chemotherapy.

Question 8

Type: MCSA

A 24-hour urine collection for vanillylmandelic acid (VMA) has been ordered on a child suspected of having neuroblastoma. The nurse begins the collection

1. At 0700.

2. After the next time the child voids.

3. At bedtime.

4. When the order is noted.

Correct Answer: 2

Rationale 1: A 24-hour urine collection is started after the child voids. That specimen is not saved, but all subsequent specimens in that 24-hour period should be collected. It would not be an accurate collection of 24 hours of urine if the collection began at 0700, bedtime, or when the order is noted.

Rationale 2: A 24-hour urine collection is started after the child voids. That specimen is not saved, but all subsequent specimens in that 24-hour period should be collected. It would not be an accurate collection of 24 hours of urine if the collection began at 0700, bedtime, or when the order is noted.

Question 9

Type: MCSA

A child has been diagnosed with a Wilms tumor; preoperative nursing care would involve

1. Careful bathing and handling.

2. Monitoring of behavioral status.

3. Maintenance of strict isolation.

4. Administration of packed red-blood cells.

Correct Answer: 1

Rationale 1: The tumor should never be palpated; careful bathing and handling are an important nursing consideration. Palpating the tumor can cause a piece of the tumor to dislodge. The childs behavior will not be affected with a Wilms tumor. The tumor does not cause excessive lowering of WBCs or RBCs, so strict isolation or administration of packed red-blood cells is not usually a nursing intervention.

Rationale 2: The tumor should never be palpated; careful bathing and handling are an important nursing consideration. Palpating the tumor can cause a piece of the tumor to dislodge. The childs behavior will not be affected with a Wilms tumor. The tumor does not cause excessive lowering of WBCs or RBCs, so strict isolation or administration of packed red-blood cells is not usually a nursing intervention.

Question 10

Type: MCSA

An adolescent is receiving methotrexate chemotherapy after undergoing limb-salvage surgery for osteogenic sarcoma. The nurse knows the teen understands the purpose of leucovorin therapy after the methotrexate if the teen says

1. Im glad I only need one dose of the leucovorin.

2. I dont have any pain so I wont need to take the leucovorin this time.

3. I know I will be taking the leucovorin every 6 hours for about the next 3 days.

4. I dont have any nausea so I wont need the leucovorin.

Correct Answer: 3

Rationale 1: Leucovorin (citrovorum factor) is a form of folic acid that helps to protect normal cells from the destructive action of methotrexate. It is started within 24 hours of methotrexate administration and is given along with hydration therapy. Usual administration is every 6 hours for 72 hours or until serum methotrexate is at the desired level.

Rationale 2: Leucovorin (citrovorum factor) is a form of folic acid that helps to protect normal cells from the destructive action of methotrexate. It is started within 24 hours of methotrexate administration and is given along with hydration therapy.

Question 11

Type: MCSA

A child has recently been diagnosed with leukemia. The childs sibling is expressing feelings of anger and guilt. This reaction by the sibling is

1. Abnormal; the sibling should be referred to a psychologist.

2. Normal; the illness doesnt affect the sibling.

3. Unexpected; the cancer is easily treated.

4. Normal; the sibling is affected too, and anger and guilt are expected feelings.

Correct Answer: 4

Rationale 1: A diagnosis of cancer affects the whole family, and initial feelings experienced by the sibling may be anger and guilt. Seldom will the sibling be unaffected; however, the response is not abnormal.

Rationale 2: A diagnosis of cancer affects the whole family, and initial feelings experienced by the sibling may be anger and guilt. Seldom will the sibling be unaffected; however, the response is not abnormal.
