    I haven't started the care plans yet and I'm on page 6 so I'm with you, it's going to be way too long! I have the old textbook and there is no actual "Brief Assessment of Spiritual Resources and Concerns" can someone tell me who the author of that is ? Is it an actual scored tool?

    I wish I found this thread earlier! Most of my papers for this class have been over the page limit and the TA did not penalize me for it. I am not looking forward to starting this paper ugh...one more week!

    [FONT=lucida grande]My paper is already 7 pages long and not done yet. For the nursing diagnosis part I did chronic pain related to joint irritation and destruction. Goal verbalize pain relief less then 4 on pain scale. Interventions non pharmacological pain management[FONT=lucida grande] strategies. Do you think you have to list them out? Evaluation patient states pain less then 4 on pain scale. I am I doing this right?? Subjective and Objective data: Also needs to be included??

    I have just been citing the text book for the assessments. Brief Assessment of Spiritual Resources and Concerns (Touhy & Jett, 2010, p. 91) for example. So far, I haven't lost points doing it this way. Waiting on week 4 paper grade though. Do you want all of the info at the bottom of the assessment? I haven't listed it that way but will if you want. Good luck!

    Are you guys referring to you interview subject as "patient" in your care plans? This is awkward because she isn't a sick, hospitalized patient! Also are we supposed to have citations in our care plans? How would we do that?

    i listed my clients weaknesses in one paragraph and strengths in a separate paragraph. For example one of her weaknesses is isolation leading to depression so for needs I said increased socialization and treatment for depression. Hope that helps...

    Grades back for week 4: I did not get any deduction of points for the manner in which I cited it (as above). Also, did not loose any points for stating "information obtained from personal communication with [initials of person interviewed], January 28, 2013" one time for entire document. Remember personal communication needs cited but does NOT go in reference list. BTW I most often referred to person I interviewed with initials, occasionally patient. Hmmm...wonder if I should change to client? Although, being an "old" nurse I still have issues with client vs patient... So far I haven't been dinged in any papers for using patient.
