    What do you understand about hypertension? Have you looked in your textbook?

    You need to base your goals based on your assessment of the client and issues they are having.

    "hypertension" is a medical diagnosis.

    what did you assess with this patient, and what are your nursing diagnoses? those are the ones for which you are asked to provide goals.

    Hypertension involves medication, diet change, lifestyle changes. You have to be able to teach the patient about the diagnosis.
