The nurse is aware that the outcome criteria would be appropriate for a child diagnosed with oppositional defiant disorder?


  • a- Accept responsibility for own behaviors
  • b- Be able to verbalize own needs and assert rights.
  • c- Set firm and consistent limits with the client
  • d- Allow the child to establish his own limits and boundaries

Answer A.

Children with oppositional defiant disorder frequently violate the rights of others.
They are defiant, disobedient, and blame others for their actions.
Accountability for their actions would demonstrate progress for the oppositional child.
Options C and D aren’t outcome criteria but interventions.
Option B is incorrect as the oppositional child usually focuses on his own needs.
