A new nurse graduate is orienting to the psychiatric unit. Which of the following clients would be the best assignment for the new nurse?

1. Depressed client who has newly reported being much happier
2. Client who is manic, and is walking briskly about the unit
3. Client who has schizophrenia, and is hearing voices
4. Client who is suicidal, and is writing a note

Explanation

This client is the most stable, as this behavior is expected in the manic client. All other clients are not stable in their current state, being at risk for possible violence (option 3) or suicide (options 1 and 4). New graduate nurses should be assigned those clients who are considered stable and who are displaying the expected outcomes for their illness.
