Care Plan Tips from Sheri

I attended the in Atlanta the end of January. I had not done a real care plan - ever. I had just learned about NANDA labels while preparing for the Nursing theory exams in August. Sheri and Gregg had wonderful tips and made it understandable.

  • When selecting your careplan remember The basic physiological needs, Maslow Hiearchy is good.
    • ABCs  = Airway, Breathing, Circulation, Safety (pain is at the top also)
  • You have to have one actual problem (or they would not be in the hospital). The second one can be either an actual or risk for problem.
  • You must have a goal the begins with "the patient" and ends with during my PCS (to make it measurable)
