I'm working on my first care plan and the instructor is requiring that we have 10 nursing diagnoses, which need to be prioritized into a list using Maslow's hierarchy as our guide (physiologic, safety & security, love and... Read More

    Ah, I didn't see that the pt is in a nursing home. Sometimes I forget there are sick people outside of acute care! One of the downsides of only having clinicals in hospitals!

    [QUOTE="CT Pixie;7553744"]When I was in school for both LPN and RN, we had to prioritize our NANDA's.

    All, a nursing diagnosis is not "a NANDA." Please don't misuse terminology when the correct one is at hand.

    I guess my comment never showed just my quote. Smh? Oh well what i said was i never knew that LPN's wrote nursing diagnosis. I thought that was considered assessment and fell outside the scope of an LPN. I'm not trying to start the RN vs LPN debate i would honestly like to know. Unfortunately our program does not outline the scope of others so im a bit in the dark on this topic.

    You are correct. LPNs do not make nursing diagnoses. Nursing assessment, making nursing diagnosis, and planning (and delegating) nursing care are registered nurse functions according to nurse practice acts everywhere, and the ANA Scope and Standards of Nursing Practice. You can get that for short money at Amazon or the ANA website bookstore.

    We can't do text-speak here. What is "smh"?

    SMH.....shaking my head......txt talk is strongly discouraged not forbidden
    Desiring to maintain professionalism, text speak (also known as chatspeak, txtspk, texting language or txt talk) is strongly discouraged.

    Thanks for the answer. Sorry about the text talk it slips out once in a while. I will have to order that book. I understand our scope as a nurse but it gets confusing when you see comments like I quoted. I see them frequently on here and other sites. I just wanted to clarify it. Do they do some other form of a careplan? I see quite a bit of posts from LPN's and LPN instructors saying that they make them. It can get confusing when you hear so many different things. I wish our school would spend some time on delegation and what the other levels scope of practice includes.
