Question on care plans.

Perhaps this may be a silly question but how much emphasis is placed on care plans in either the FCCA or CPNE? I've devoted all of my study time to the textbooks and studyguides. Are nursing diagnosis and care plans critical? I'm moving on to Repo Health and anticipate being eligible for CPNE by the end of the year. Do I need to lay off the other study for a while and concentrate on care plans?

I didn't have to take the FCCA, so I have no clue about that ... however, careplans are KEY for the CPNE!! They can make or break your CPNE exam. So yes, nursing diagnosis and careplans are uber-critical. But I wouldn't focus on them until you need to do so; you need to pass the exams to get to the point of worrying about them. :)

Care Plans for the FCCA ...not so much but you need a clue.

Care plans for CPNE are a must! If you can't write 2 correct care plans for the Pt assigned to you.... you don't even make it into the Pt's room.
