This is a quiz that contains NCLEX review questions for Celiac Disease. As a nurse providing care to a patient with Celiac Disease, it is important to know the signs and symptoms, pathophysiology, nursing management, diet education, and complications.
In the previous NCLEX review series, I explained about other GI disorders you may be asked about on the NCLEX exam, so be sure to check out those reviews and quizzes as well.
