Family Nursing January - page 12

Starting this family nursing course in January and from what I hear this is going to be a hard course. I am looking for the support of my fellow class mates, or any hints from those who have... Read More

    More than likely. I read (and re-read) the instructions. It sounds like they want "one" intervention and to expand on that - like what community resources would you use, etc. Did anyone else get that feeling?
    Did anyone else get an announcement about this week's paper? I'm in section 049 here's what I got:
    The directions say you need to identify 1 family goal & 1 nursing intervention,
    in addition to answering the other questions listed.
    This is unclear in the rubric. You only need 1 each.

    I'm not in your section, but I got the exactly same announcement. I emailed the TA and clarified it. You need 1 intervention for 1 related goal, but you need to write at least 3 of them as stated in the rubric.

    I did end up getting that announcement. So one intervention and goal it is. I'll be doing my case study final paper tomorrow and then I'm D-O-N-E with this class. I wish everyone all the best on their final paper and in their future classes at OU.

    I found this post just in time. Wk 5 case study #3 states identify one state or national policy r/t health, economics or social issue. Do they want a law or an organization? I'm confused on this one

    So I have read and re-read the instructions multiple times trying to figure out exactly what is expected on this final case study paper. Maybe I am reading too much into it and trying to make it harder than it is. This is what I have gathered thus far: we need 3 family goals with 3 interventions that list resources for each intervention? Is it as simple as compiling the other 3 case study assignments into one big paper (seems too easy)? And lastly, the last question has me all confused as to what they want?? Thanks for any feedback

    I already had most of my paper written when this announcement came out and I did three problems/interventions/goals. I had a really hard time coming up with 4 pages - even threw in some BS. I emailed the TA to see if that was okay.

    I'm in 049 and have the Goldsmiths too! I'm in the middle of this paper but I'm having a hard time stretching it to 4 pages. Ugh! Hoping to wrap it up today or early tomorrow, will have to work the rest of the week/weekend.

    TA said if I did three, that was okay. It may have been easier to do three because then you don't have to elaborate on just one. ??? I'm in section 054. I can finally discharge the Goldsmith family!! Ha, ha.

    Are any of you doing a NANDA family nursing diagnosis? That was not clear on the directions. I don't like any of the NANDA diagnoses;-)
