    Welcome to AN! We are here to help. However: We do not do your homework for you. You are in nursing school to learn how to be a nurse; asking someone for the answers like this is not learning. If you tell us, "I have this and this nursing diagnoses because my patient has these things going on and I found thus and such on my examination, but I'm confused about...." then we'll really work hard to help you understand. Or if you said, "My nursing text says A, B, and C, but my lab text says D, E, and F, so which one is it?" we could help you see the reasons for that.

    But going on an online nursing forum and saying, "Give me three nursing diagnoses, two actual diagnoses and one risk diagnoses and also the nursing care plan and two priority needs" by tonight (!), or "Write my care plan for me" is not what your faculty had in mind when they made this assignment.

    Nurses have to keep learning their whole professional lives. One of the things you are supposed to learn in nursing school is how to learn, that is, how to find out what you have to know. Reading reference books, looking in the textbooks you're assigned, and so will be doing that forever. This is how it starts.

    If all you do about learning new things is "Go to the keyboard and hit send," then you are limiting your chances of actual learning a valuable skill you will need all your working life. AN is not "Ask Jeeves."

    So, OP: what have you learned so far that we can help explain? What are your ideas on this care plan, and why?

    Welcome to AN! The largest online nursing community!

    GrnTea is right. We are happy to help with homework but we will not do it for you. Doing this for you will not make you the best nurse you can be. Care plans are more than just something your teachers dream up to drive you mad. They are an important step in making you in to a critical thinking RN.

    Nursing is very different than other professions in that all the steps are important to the final result. These are the recipe cards necessary to start your thinking process on how to care for this patient. It like when baking all the steps must be carried out in a certain order or the pastry won't turn out properly because baking is mostly chemical reactions and must be followed exactly as written....or the cake won't rise.

    Care plans are the recipe to teach you how to care for patients properly so they have good care and optimal outcomes.
