Hi All - New Member Here

  1. Hi Everyone,

    I have just discovered this site and think it is great. It has everything a prospective nursing student could ask for. I look forward to talking with a lot of people on this site with the same interests, issues, and to learn new information.

    It is my care plan for myself: Here goes

    Nursing diagnosis: Hopelessness r/t prolonged activity restriction
    creating isolation, long-term stress, perception of demands that
    overwhelm personal resources.

    Outcomes: I will verbalize feelings, Make positive statements(e.g., "I can pass nursing school" or "I will study all the material
    for this exam and be prepared for the next test") ,Sleep appropriate
    length of time for my age and health needs, Initiate activity.

    Nursing Interventions: Monitor and document the potential for
    suicide. Assess for signs and symptoms of depression, and use humor as

    Teaching:Teach the use of stress-reduction tecniques, relaxation, and
    imagery. Encourage family to express love, concern, and encouragement
    and allow to express and verbalize feelings.
