First......Thread moved to nursing student assistance for best response.
Second.....AN promotes healthy debates as long as they are polite....
you are free to disagree with anyone on any type of subject matter as long as your criticism is constructive and polite. We also ask to please refrain from name-calling. This is divisive, rude, and derails the thread.
Our first priority is to the members that have come here because of the flame-free atmosphere we provide. There is a zero-tolerance policy here against personal attacks. We will not tolerate anyone insulting other's opinion nor name calling.
Our call is to be supportive, not divisive.
Third......at AN we ask that all
Feel free to seek assistance with difficult content, care plans
, interviews, papers, study questions, dosage calculations, and other academic challenges you are facing. This is NOT the forum to ask someone to do your homework for you. When asking for assistance with an assignment, please show what you have done first.
OP.......We are more than happy to help with homework...but we will not do it for you. Our goal is making each and every member the best nurse they can be.
In nursing ....what you learn is vital to becoming the best nurse you can be....you will learn things that you will have to carry with you everyday. Gone are the days of....learn it for the test and I'll never see it again.
Care plans/maps are not just an exercise in driving you mad....but they are vital in teaching you how to critically think...how to develop the best plan on how to care for your patient and what to take care of first.....these are vital skills towards being a good nurse. Care plans are recipes to know how to care for you patient...what do you do first and why...... To know what to do and how to do it well....The difference between a line cook at Mickey D's and a 5 star chef.
Nursing takes planning.....every thing you will do as a nurse involves planning. School is set up to help you develop planning skills. Waiting until the last possible moment to address what is needed to be done.....can cost a patient their life.
Like all nurses we will ask for all the information and seek all the information to make the best decision possible and to provide the best information possible.
OP....Welcome to AN!
The largest online nursing community!
What semester are you in? What care plan book do you have? If you don't have a good care plan book I suggest you get one for you will be using it the rest of your schooling and you will not be able to develop care plans/maps without one. I use Ackley: Nursing Diagnosis Handbook
, 9th Edition and Gulanick: Nursing Care Plans, 7th Edition. Show me how to best help you.
