Priority setting is a clinical reasoning skill that is essential to develop clinical judgment for practice and licensure.
Use this PRIORITY Patient Activity to simulate the practical priority setting that a nurse will experience in practice. This activity can be used as a virtual clinical activity or enhance traditional clinical.

- Pt #1:Herbie Saunders, 62-year-old male with heart failure exacerbation
- Pt #2: David Mueller, 71-year-old male with a recent below-the-knee amputation
- Pt #3: Gladys Parker, a 92-year-old woman with weakness and falls
Part I: Nurse-to-nurse report, review of the chart, PRIORITY setting to determine who the nurse should see FIRST.
This case study comes complete with a student writeable PDF and fully developed answer key!
