A client with a terminal illness states, "If I could only live until I can walk my daughter down the aisle at her wedding, I will donate all of my money to research." The nurse reports that the client is in which phase of the grief process?

1. Denial
2. Seeking
3. Bargaining
4. Resolution

Explanation

Bargaining is the stage in which the client attempts to bargain for more time. Denial (option 1) indicates the stage in which the client denies that he or she is terminally ill. Seeking (option 2) reflects the stage in which a client seeks more answers and cures. Resolution (option 4) is the stage in which the client has come to terms with the illness. The core issue of the question is ability to analyze a stage of grief by interpreting client comments. Use nursing knowledge and the process of elimination to make a selection.
