    The "related to" is a component added to the NANDA-approved nursing diagnosis to further describe the DX and assist with the reasoning process. It is not the nursing diagnosis itself.
    Thank you for clearing that up because I was confused myself!

    I would definitely advise getting a NANDA book I used mine for every care plan. and I need a little more info to help with the dx you can have r/t anxiety but i don't really think acute pain r/t anxiety makes sense. the anxiety isn't causing the pain... its causing anxiety. lol. so for example acute pain r/t laceration to head AEB PT report of pain of 9 on a scale of 1-10. I always like my AEB to be something the PT actually stated if possible. if you are tryinig to use anxiety i would have anxiety r/t (upcoming procedure, new medication, etc) AEB PT report of feelings of "nervousness". hope this helps!!

    My instructor specifically told us DO NOT buy a care plan book because you will not be writing them as an LPN. You need to understand them absolutely, but you are not permitted to write them. At least that's here in Pa
    although that is true we don't actually write them in my program we had to do a "professional paper"/care plan every semester and needed at least 5 nrsg dx for it. so I did get a NANDA book and it was sooo helpful!! but i think it was silly considering we don't actually write them. Something interesting also.. lol if you look in your PT's chart some facilities have the actual care plans that nurses have made on the PT exactly in nrsg dx form with interventions so you can try looking in your PTs chart to see what the other nurses put
