of Deficient Knowledge. The nurse will ensure time is allocated for client instruction because:
1. the client cannot be discharged without it.
2. it is a legal component of the nursing process.
3. it is a nice thing to do for a client.
4. the physician has written an order for instruction.
Patient education is a legal component of the nursing process that was identified in the Patient’s Bill of
Rights. Patient education is a necessary function of nursing care. The client could be discharged
without receiving instructions. Education is not done because it is a nice thing to do for a client. Client
education does not necessitate a physician’s order.

be appropriate to instruct during an informal teaching session?
1. Expected effects of a new medication
2. Instruction on leg exercises to be used after surgery
3. How to use an incentive spirometer
4. Diet and medications to manage a new diagnosis of diabetes mellitus
Instruction can be either informal or formal. Informal instruction occurs intermittently and frequently
during the course of client care. These instructions are simple, relate to the disease process, and answer
client questions. Providing the expected effects of a new medication is a type of information
instruction. Formal instructions are deliberate with specific goals and an evaluation process.
Instructing on postoperative leg exercises, the use of an incentive spirometer, and diet and medications
to manage a new health diagnosis are all examples of formal instruction.
