are you taking or have taken Excelsior online documentation or Careplanning Conference? I think this will be beneficial.
Hello Bostonnurse AOCs are areas of care which some are overiding, required and then you may be given up to 4 assessment or management AOCs be it respiratory, abdominal, neurological, etc. You want to get in and get out of the room. You wont do more than whats on the kardex .i realize I am speaking jibberish. U see there are areas you must complete within your patient care scenarios in order to be a success for your weekend. For instance there is asepsis and fluid management. which are a part of your 20 minute checks. The critical elements done within these areas of care are washing your hands, explaining to your patient you r a student and introducing your instructor. Identifying the patients arm band compared to your kardex name and date of birth donning gloves to assess iv site for redness or edema then removing the gloves, geling....identifying fluids or enteral feeding. The infusion type, rate, checking the tubing and explaining how you may refer to your kardex how you will check off things and record. I really have not scratched the surface of the concept. CPNE is about showing the ce's and ca's you can perform as a first day RN on the job. This includes writing careplans and documenting. Just applying non assessment interventions to Nanda labels. Sorry for being long winded :-)
