Free Practice Test: Death and Dying

This free practice test includes information about caring for someone who is approaching death. It includes the stages of grief, physical changes related to death as well as vocabulary words commonly associated with caring for people who are terminally ill.

One of the best pieces of advice that I received when I became a nurse was to always remember that patients are either dead or alive. When they are alive, treat them as such. Providing compassionate, excellent care may not lessen the loss, but family members often do remember details of this most difficult time and appreciate those extra efforts.

How to use this practice test:
