    This is fine book - using it a lot. Using software(carescribble) to build /store / edit my care plans. When working ( I am a Nurse) I turn on my laptop on to print out care plans when I need them. I have about 56 Care Plans ready for use. No paperwork

    How about ICNP the 'International Classification For Nursing Practise' ?.
    It seems to me that there are another nursing 'standards' coming up
    and it is a question if it is going to replace nanda,nic and noc.

    What do nurses use to create care plans ?

    A rule of thumb (from my experience) in clinical practice.
    If care plan has more than 5 nursing diagnosis (or more than one page long) then the care plan is useless and it is a waste of time.
    Short and efficent written care plans ensures that different nurses ( which care for the same patient) are focusing on the SAME problem/s at least.
    This ensures also that communication between nurses (who cares for the same patient) are in sync and reduces mistakes and misunderstanding.

    Hi brisse
    Ok so what do you do when working as a Nurse in ward.
    You must come up with something - 'plan'.
    Nursing diagnosis are not so bad - until we have something better.
    The main question is how do we mesure our work - If you read hospitals annual report then there is always good report on how much
    doctors have been doing - because they have good data (can be mesured).
    Nurses have been trying to implent data so their work could mesured but
    maybe it is not godenough - and we are still trying

    Dear SAHStudent
    Yes word templates are good for this and I used it for years.
    As I am also Computer Analyst (and Nurse) I wrote my own Care Plan
    software tool for my PC. This utility saves me lot of time.
    I am sure there are some other tools around (such as for PDA,s) but I need to search more on internet.
