A student nurse is assisting a nurse practitioner in a clinic. The student nurse is responsible for preparing patients for examinations, setting up the examination room, assisting with the exams, and securing specimens for the lab. One of the patients is a 4-year-old who requires a physical examination for preschool. The student notices that the patient is quiet, clings to his parent, and is hesitant to enter the examination area. What can the student do to help make the 4-year-old more comfortable but still prepare for the examination? What items should be set up for this physical examination?
