This is a quiz that contains NCLEX review questions for Crohn’s Disease. As a nurse providing care to a patient with Crohn’s Disease, it is important to know the classic signs and symptoms of Crohn’s Disease, types of Crohn’s Disease, medications used to treat the condition, the complications, treatments, and nursing interventions.
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.
