Free Nursing Practice Test: Pain

Pain. Anyone who has worked in healthcare for more than a few days has cared for people who are in pain. Caregivers often assess for pain as a fifth "vital sign." Although a common problem, how people respond to pain and what relieves it can be as varied as those for whom we provide care.

How knowledgeable are you when it comes to pain? This 15-question true/false practice test includes some basic concepts when caring for people who are in pain. I hope you find this resource to be helpful!
