Hi Dylan, those dreaded careplans are something most nursing
students don't miss after graduation. I sometimes used the book
'Nursing Diagnosis Reference Manual 2nd ed. by Sparks and Taylor. Very informative. Sometimes with a Dx. you can't be
too specific, i.e. vein graph. Instead look at the bigger picture,
as with most post-ops. potential for infection, altered mobility,
pain related to.....etc. Good luck...and don't forget to drill your instructors as they often have different expectations.
