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.

(Includes a FREE online Care Plan Constructor)

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Carole Ann Kenner, PhD, RN, FAAN (The College of New Jersey)
Description: The text presents a wonderful guide to developing care plans that allow for individual adaptation. The previous edition (4th) was published in 1998.
Purpose: The book is designed to provide a guide for nurses that need to adapt plans of care to diverse medical-surgical patients. The primary focus is the patient in the acute care setting that includes discharge planning and transition to home/community. Yes these are worthy objectives and yes the author met these.
Audience: The target audience is any nurse-student or practicing that needs to develop or implement a plan of care. This audience is according to the author and to me. The author team are very credible.
Features: The back cover of the book actually gives a very good synopsis of the features of the book. It highlights the key elements that make this book easier to use than most others on the market. Two new chapters were added with this edition-Mens Health and Women's Helth Care Plans. These focus on genitorinary problems-physiologic and related to cancer. The NANDA diagnoses have been updated and are related to NIC and NOC. The latter relates to evidence based outcomes. Each plan has boxes that draw the reader's attention to elements of the nursing process and the standardized language. One major improvement in this edition is the online careplan construction component. The format is much easier to use and adapt to individual patient needs than in the past. The lack of plans outside the acute care setting remains a shortcoming of this text. With the increasing population of patients in the home and community this content is needed as is ties to e-health.
Assessment: This book, despite its shortcomings, stands far above the competing books. The closest competitors are: Nursing Care Plans: Guidelines for Individualizing Patient Care, 6th edition, Doenges, et al. (F.A. Davis, 2002); Nursing Diagnosis Handbook: A Guide to Planning Care, 5th edition, Ackley, et al. (Mosby, 2002); and Nursing Care Plans and Documentation: Nursing Diagnoses and Collaborative Problems, 3rd edition, by Carpenito (Lippincott, Williams, & Wilkins, 1999). This book is user-friendly, up-to-date, and attractive in the way it calls the reader's attention to the important elements. The online care plan constructor is a wonderful element for students and especially instructors who want to illustrate how plans can be adapted to unique needs. This edition of the book is much improved from the previous editions.

    The Best Nursing Care Plan book!

    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!

    Care Plan's Suck

    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.

    Excellent Nursing Book

    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.
