Feb 19, '07Quote from Myxel67Don't worry, you'll never do another care plan after you get out of nursing school.
Uhhh, I have to initiate/update a careplan on every pt in the ICU. So don't count on never doing them again.
And when JCAHO was grilling me last week for over 2 hours, you had better believe that they looked at our careplans, and noticed every single shift that did not address them!
Feb 19, '07Not at all. Ourin Fundamentals and Med-Surg were very extensive. Some 20-30 pages. The Newborn and Pediactric CPs were lengthy as well because you had to include Mom/baby/faimily, etc. But by the time we got to Advanced Med Surg and did our ICU CP's...they were really quite short. We just hit the highlights. I guess by then we were expected to know the info better...and their grading reflected that. CP's may have been short, but you had better not make a mistake! LOL!
A 100 pg CP is ridiculous!
Feb 19, '07Quote from leesespiecesI almost fell out of my chair!we get one week
We got at least a week to do a careplan, if not two weeks...and ours were about 1/3 to 1/4 the size that is required of you!
We had a few 5-10 pg papers we had to do on various topics and we got almost a month for those.
How many of these do you have to do?
Feb 19, '07Quote from cardiacRN2006Same here. We update the careplan each shift.Uhhh, I have to initiate/update a careplan on every pt in the ICU. So don't count on never doing them again.
