    FORTHELOVEOF...that's what we do, minus the three care plans. We just work up one, which we can rewrite prn.

    I agree with KatePasa. In school, we are given hypothetical situations in the form of case studies. But, usually, we have plenty of data to go off of.

    "so, out of curiosity...you wouldn't consider reading patient chart/history/kardex to be a form of assessment? "

    of course i'd consider that data. so often people think that, for example, a medical diagnosis cannot be referenced in a nursing care plan. that's horsepucky-- pick up the nanda-i 2012-2014 (which you should all have anyway) and almost every nursing diagnosis there references a medical disease diagnosis. floridatrail notes that her school gives her hypothetical patients for case studies, but includes nursing assessment data with which to work. this is appropriate.

    what i object to is the idea that you can write a nursing plan of care for a medical diagnosis without any nursing assessment data. there is no such thing as a nursing plan of care based solely on a medical diagnosis, and i do not think that any school of nursing should be using that structure to teach nursing.

    sorry, ft. they used to give us little icons with our names to indicate things like that to avoid this sort of faux pas. :d

    name comes from the old aol communities-- i was a community leader and ran some biweekly live chats on the rn and student nurse communities, and wrote in green. fun times.
