For all you students who need a good careplan resource...I had a book called "Nursing Care Plans
" by Marilynn Doenges when I was an SN, that was great. If you need help with careplans, that book will give you tons of info! If your nursing school
doesn't carry it, I think amazon
.com does. Well worth the $ when you are doing careplans in nursing school. ;-)
