Overview

Nursing Care Plans, 6th Edition is the most comprehensive nursing care planning book on the market, with 183 care plans covering the most common nursing diagnoses and clinical problems in medical-surgical nursing. It reflects the most current clinical practice and professional standards in nursing and presents the content in an easy-to-use, reader-friendly format. The book functions as two books in one, with one section including a collection of nursing diagnosis care plans and the other providing a library of disease/disorder care plans that serve as models of care planning for the most common medical diagnoses, medical procedures, and psychosocial conditions seen in nursing practice.

• The nursing diagnosis care plan format includes a NANDA definition, a brief explanation of the diagnosis, related NOC outcomes and NIC interventions, related factors, defining characteristics, expected outcomes, ongoing assessment, and therapeutic interventions.
• The disorders care plan format includes synonyms for the disorder (for ease in cross referencing), a clear and succinct definition of the disorder, related factors, defining characteristics, expected outcomes, NIC interventions and NOC outcomes, ongoing assessment, and therapeutic interventions for each relevant nursing diagnosis.

I am a long term care nurse, and this book has single handedly made my job much easier. It is very user friendly, and pretty much can make your care plans patient specific with it's huge listing of interventions and rationales. I wish I had this in Nursing School, it would have made my life MUCH MUCH easier! My only complaint is that it needs an alarm sensor in it, because all my coworkers keep tring to runaway with it!

I know how much work writing a care plan can be. We have care plans that are 30 pages long and the part that is the most work is nursing diagnosis, interventions, and rationals. The school made us get carpenito and it was a nightmare to use. This book is heaven sent you don't have to go searching around for nursing diagnosis it goes according to the medical diagnosis. After you have the medical diagnosis it gives you everything from nursing diagnosis to interventions and rationals to goals. This book is fantastic. It saves me so so much time when I am doing a care plan. I love it and recommend it to anyone in nursing. The other great thing about it is that you may not be researching everything because it does it for you but you still learn a lot.

I was in Nursing I and I needed some help with my correlation guidelines. I bought this book @ Barnes & Nobles to help with the nursing diagnoses and interventions. I received excellent grades on the correlation guidelines by using this book. It was extremely helpful. I would highly recommend this book. I intend to continue using this book throughout my nursing career.
