hello....

i am a new member in this site and i am also a new LVN student. i am currently at the end of my term 1 and was looking for the BEST if not GOOD reference in making a NCP. i got some suggestions from some of my friends like getting a NANDA book but i am confused between getting a NANDA book or a book guide in making a care plan. and one of my instructors suggested to get one of those handbooks in making care plans for LVN students but unfortunately he forgot the handbook title. he also told us why its adviseable to get the small handbook for now so that we wont be stressesd out with all of the informations. now my question is, do i get the book or the handbook (smaller version) of the nursing care plan and what book do u guys suggest because i can see that there are a lot of them out there. or a NANDA book or a combination of both.

thank you

I understand why your prof doesn't want to overwhelm you (there is A LOT) but I think getting a more comprehensive (read: bigger) book will give you more options and more information when it comes to writing out those care plans. The right info makes all the difference! Trust me! :) As for whether or not you get a NANDA book, it doesn't necessarily matter who the book is written/published by as long as all of the diagnosis are NANDA nursing diagnosis. I personally found a set of flashcards at Borders 'going out of business' sale that had the NANDA diagnosis, popular interventions, possible outcomes, warnings, etc for ALL of the NANDA diagnosis. It has already been a lifesaver!

Don't hesitate to ask your prof what the name of the book was that he was recommending. Teachers LOVE it when students pay attention/take the advice they are given!! It might be a great way to make sure your prof knows your serious about your studies and your paying attention! :) Good Luck with your nursing care plans!!
