Overview

This reference is a compilation of care plans for the most commonly encountered clinical problems in nursing today. Written by practicing nurses for students and/or clinicians, this book reflects the most current practice and professional standards in nursing. With more than 200 nursing care plans, including 54 nursing diagnosis care plans, and the addition of Nursing Intervention Classifications (NIC), NURSING CARE PLANS is the most comprehensive care plan book in the medical-surgical market. This edition features two new chapters on how to individualize care plans and how to adapt them to special patient needs. These "cookbook" chapters will assist the novice or student nurse in creating care plans, while the care plans for specific disorders will serve the practicing nurse who needs relevant clinical information.Additional care plans are available on a special website.

* Contains more than 200 nursing care plans, including 54 nursing diagnosis care plansmore than any other care plan book on the market.
• Provides priority assessment information in the beginning of the book.
• Defines disorders and treatments clearly; each care plan includes related factors, defining characteristics, and assessment parameters.
• Patient care outcomes are integrated with specific, measurable, objective goals.
• Strictly differentiates elements of the nursing process by separating interventions for each nursing diagnosis from the assessment to allow students to apply the process daily, and distinctly marks collaborative versus independent interventions by using different icons, making it easier for students to identify nursing roles in each type of care.
• Includes physical, psychosocial, teaching, and referral interventions, and some procedural interventions for the novice nurse.
• Contains both nursing and medical diagnoses in one book.
• Organizes care plans by body system for fast retrieval of information; each individual care plan and its corresponding page are listed on the inside front and back covers for quick reference.

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.
