Hi Rebecca! Welcome to nursing! At your school do they start careplans right off bat? I didn't start doing careplans till 2cnd semester. I am in the ADN program going into my 3rd semester in August. Our instructors did get upset with us if they didn't like our careplans. To me it is one of the hardest things to adjust to. The careplans we did, the nurses did not follow it. We turned our careplans into our instructor and the nurses never seen our careplans. Our instructors advised the nurses what were going to do to this patient and we just charted it after we were done. I am not sure if we are going to have to turn that in 3rd semester but I'll let you know when I get there. I have a web site you might want to go to were there are all the careplans you can think of. Those sites helped me last semester. It is www.geocities.com/ajax_clean/StudentNurse.html
Good luck in nursing!
