Nursing Diagnosis

Hello nurses,

I need a list of Neonatal nursing diagnosis. I have to do 3 care plans and I don't know much about newborns.

I would appreciate your help, thank you.

Check out your library or local bookstore. They have entire books devoted to nursing diagnoses.

Homework being done by the student, rather than strangers on the internet, is A Good Thing.

Just ideas...I do not remember much about nicu/newborn rotation and I do not remember the proper nanda but nicu/newborn ideas: look into temperature regulation issues, feeding issues, knowledge deficits-breastfeeding teaching, or there can be family teaching needs with first child or family stress issues with nicu.

Why do people do this?

Why give students answers, when they appear to be making no effort of their own? How does that help them?

I had a feeling that some random negative person like Klone would post here.

Honey,I don't know what you call homework but I am not asking people to do my homework. Never have and never will. I just wanted some examples. I can list a million nursing diagnosis for adults, I just don't know any for newborns. If you don't want to help go and do something productive for your life. God, why do people have to assume everybody wants answers here. I would never take that risk.

You know you just completely contradicted yourself in this post, don't you?

I don't think I did, can you tell me how? Maybe it came out wrong.

You say you aren't asking for people to do your homework. Then you say you know "a million nursing dx. for adults (doubtful)," but you don't know any for newborns, so you wanted examples. That is where you contradict yourself.

Why couldn't you do it the old-fashioned way? Research it. You learn a lot better when you invest a little time and effort into what you're doing, rather than expecting to pop onto a MB and get instant answers. At least you don't have to go to a library and look things up in books.

People here get testy with students asking for answers to questions because it shows a lack of initiative. Had you said you had looked in several references and were having trouble coming up with appropriate nursing dx., I'll bet your request would have been received differently.

The list of NANDA-approved nursing diagnoses is only about a page long. How hard is it to glance through that list and find something you would think appropriate for a newborn?

You don't have to be a parent or otherwise familiar with babies to be able to figure it out. Use your brain and critical thinking skills.

You say you're "not looking for answers" but then you go on to say you are looking for some examples. Um...

That is true, I do know many nursing dx for adults and not any for newborns but just because I am asking for examples it does not mean it is homework, I just want to learn and I have asked many questions here beforethis is not the first time. I just don't like it when people assume every question here is about homework. Of course I looked over my old books before I posted here, my goal is to learn and If I can't find something on my own I will ask questions, I don't want to die ignorant. If there are student out there who post their homework questions , they must have courage and trust because I would never trust anybody here to do my homework( you never know who posts here and you won't know if it is the right answer) and I would never take that chance.

Anyway, ignore this question people assume too much instead of helping.
