I'm wondering what would be a good goal to put on a learning plan and if you know if there are any samples that I can check out. Some kind of goal that can be accomplished in a nursing home.

go to this website: http://www.rncentral.com/careplans/contents.html
and click on the care plan for "knowledge deficit". you will see that it has a column headed "plan and outcome". this will give you an idea of how to list a goal. that is only a general form. you should make your statements a little more specific for a school nursing care plan. they need to be positive actions that the patient is going to be able to perform and that you will be able to observe. in a nursing home your teaching plan for someone you have on a bladder training program for incontinency could have a goal that can be as simple as "patient will ring call bell for ambulatory assistance every time he needs to toilet".
here is another site that has several actual student care plans
posted. some are quite lengthy. i didn't look at them so i don't know if there are any teaching goals in them, so i'll leave it for you to check out.
- this is an archive of student nursing care plans at the state university of new york, buffalo. you will need to check out the links to the various care plans to find out what each care plan is about as they are not given in the links.
