Probably not, but I've never used it. Care plans are really pretty easy to construct. I bought a care plan book that wasn't on our syllabus, and quickly discovered that my instructor didn't like the "new, improved" wording in my care plans, lol. So in effect, more than a tool to walk you through the process, you really need to figure out what your instructors want and regurgitate that on a regular basis. If you're brand new to care plans, the CD gives you confidence, and you can afford it, then it might be worth it... but after a while care plans become pretty generic and much easier to do.
