  1. role confusion.
  2. isolation.
  3. internal role conflict.
  4. diminished self-esteem.

ANS: C
The assumption of multiple roles results in conflicts because the individual roles require time and behavioral modes that may conflict with each other. For example, the behaviors that a self-directed businessman may find useful in running a successful business may conflict with being the obedient son or caring husband.

5. The nurse is aware that the older man who retires from his work and changes his role status will have fewer adjustment problems primarily on the basis of whether he:

  1. is financially secure.
  2. has other roles and relationships.
  3. is healthy.
  4. has a supportive family.

ANS: B
Other significant roles can take the place of the role of an employed worker. The fewer roles one has, the greater the impact of retirement. Finances, health, and family are important, but not as significant to the self-image as having other satisfying roles.
