I didn't really put much effort into that part to tell ya the truth. I simpy used that highlighted section and plugged in my Nursing Dx. I don't have the Carpenito's anymore, but I think it was something like, (Fluid and Electrolyte balance- or other nursing Dx or Area of Care) "is a basic physiological need, without it the patient's condition would deteriorate."
I think for one rationale for the Nursing Dx Imparied Mobility that I chose for a particular patient I used, "Mobility is a basic physiological need, without adequate mobility the patient's condition would deteriorate." Blah blah. I tried to keep it simple. Hope that helps!

yeah, that helps anticoagulationurse, thanks. so, as long as it explains the rationale for the priority nursing dx choice, using that basic blurb and customizing it, i should be alright. i'll go back to studying the other stuff. thanks again acn!
