I am doing my nursing diagnosis list for a major care plan
ok, I have this knowledge deficit diagnosis,(my pt is diabetic) I know that normally this would go way down at the end, but what if I have a bunch of risk for diagnosis , do I list those first, and than the actual knowledge deficit diagnosis, ( this one is not a risk for , it is actual), or do I put that one before I start with the risk for...
the risk for diagnosis are: risk for ineffective breathing pattern,risk for infection, risk for tissue perfusion, risk for constipation, and risk for powerlessness, that's the order I put those in
I don't have any problems with my other actual diagnosis, I am just not sure where to put the Knowledge deficit diagnosis
any help would be appreciated , thanks

I am just curious on tissue perfusion...how fast does our brain shuts down when there's not enough O2? what bout lungs and heart too?
This is basic anatomy and physiology. It is also taught in basic CPR class. Haven't you taken anatomy yet? Didn't you have to get CPR certification before starting nursing school?
