NCLEX-RN Question 6

This NCLEX-RN question is brought to you by Rachel Allen Reviewers:

Q: A patient experiences difficulty falling asleep. Which of the following drinks should the nurse offer to the patient at bedtime?

A. A cup of coffee
B. A glass of wine
C. A glass of milk
D. A can of soda

Correct Answer: C
As long as there are no medical contraindications, a glass of milk would be the best drink to offer a patient who is having difficulty falling asleep. The dietary amino acid L-tryptophan found in milk is believed to aid in the induction of sleep. Milk also has a good nutritional value, unlike the other choices.
