Care plans?

  1. Hi, I am an LPN student here in Tucson, AZ. I have about 19weeks left of the program, then I start my transition to RN. We are in clinicals right now and we must complete a couple of care plans. Is there any good websites I can go to for help on putting together really good care plans? The Hospital I work at does not even use care plans, but we must do them for school. Any help would be helpful!!
    Thanks,
    Carlos

    Hi Carlos!

    I do not know of specific web sites, but you can type in nursing care plans on a search engine. I have done this before, and have gotten many good sites that provide specific as well as generic blank care plans for your use. Good luck!

    These are two that I got from a post on this board a while back. I think Betts posted them. You might be able to find more if you do a search on this site.

    There are also lots of care plan books that you can buy. One of the ones we use for our program is "Nursing Care plans; Guidelines for individualizing patient care" The authors are Doenges, Moorhouse, and Geissler. I usually get mine from Barnes and Noble, the web site sometimes also sells used books for much less than the cover price.

    Good luck!

    See if you can get you a careplan book... They work very well if you will coordinate them to be patient specific.....
