RN student needing help

  1. As a student I frequently need assistance with my pt care plans. For example R/T vein grafting... where do I look for help with this care plan AND preop. postop. care?

    Hi Dylan, those dreaded careplans are something most nursing
    students don't miss after graduation. I sometimes used the book
    'Nursing Diagnosis Reference Manual 2nd ed. by Sparks and Taylor. Very informative. Sometimes with a Dx. you can't be
    too specific, i.e. vein graph. Instead look at the bigger picture,
    as with most post-ops. potential for infection, altered mobility,
    pain related to.....etc. Good luck...and don't forget to drill your instructors as they often have different expectations.
