The nurse identifies a client’s learning preference as visual. Which of the following would be appropriate when teaching the client about insulin injection?

  • an audiotape
  • an orange, an insulin syringe, an alcohol wipe, and a bottle of sterile saline
  • classroom discussion
  • an instructional pamphlet
Number 4 is correct.
The instructional pamphlet is visual, allowing the client to see words and pictures, which is appropriate given the client’s preference. The audiotape and classroom discussion are auditory, allowing the client to hear words. The orange/syringe/alcohol wipe/bottle are tactile, allowing the client to touch.
