Competency-Based Assessments

1 .
In what ways might the expected voiding and stooling patterns differ between a breast-fed and a formula-fed newborn, and how would you address parental concerns related to variations in these patterns?
2 .
As a nursing student, how would you explain circumcision care to new parents, including proper cleaning and signs of potential issues, and when would you advise them to reach out to the health-care provider?
3 .
As a clinical nurse, how would you analyze the potential interplay between hyperbilirubinemia and hypoglycemia in a newborn? How might the pathophysiology of hyperbilirubinemia impact glucose metabolism, and how would you prioritize care for a newborn presenting with both conditions?
4 .
Evaluate the implications of common newborn infections for dermatologic health. How might infections contribute to skin issues, and what nursing strategies would you employ for the holistic care of a newborn presenting with both an infection and dermatologic concerns?
