The client speaks in coherent sentences.

A client exhibiting flight of ideas typically has a continuous speech flow and jumps from one topic to another. Speaking in coherent sentences is an indicator that the clients concentration has improved and his thoughts are no longer racing. The remaining options do not relate directly to the stated nursing diagnosis.
