Hi! This is my first time posting and having an actual nursing diagnoses assignment and I keep doubting my answers and just want to know if there is anything I should improve on. I have to do 4-5 psychosocial/medical and learning needs. This is my Ob rotation and I am writing diagnoses for the baby. Then I have to list them in order by PRIORITY (#1-5). Thanks in advance for your comments!
