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 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 in an accelerated RN program and I had never before written a care plan. I found the required Carpenito book too difficult to follow and my clinical instructor recommended this one. It was great. All you have to do is look up the condition you are ineterested in and it will give you all revelant care plans. I highly receommend it to all new nursing students.

    I am a 2nd year nursing student and this book is well organized and covers a multitude of diagnosises that others do not.
    If you need it broken down by Nursing diagnosis and their definitions to qualify a client for that diagnosis,this information is in the beginning of the book.
    This is a must book for nursing clinicals.

    I am a senior nursing student and this book is a GODSEND for care plan assignments and as a supplement for class lectures. Organization by medical diagnosis rather than nursing diagnoses helps by including pathophysiology and disease-specific nursing interventions. Interventions are listed very thoroughly with clearly explained rationales. This book is also a great tool for clinical though its size makes it somewhat cumbersome to carry around all day. I highly highly recommend it!

    This is the best care planning book ever. It was recommended by one of my instructors and it has saved me some much unneeded additional stress. This book is easy to read, understand, and follow for any stage of a nursing program. Must have for sure!

    This book saved me in nursing school! Every semester my teachers kept a copy of my nursing plans to show future students. My friends struggled with care plans, but this book made it easy for me. Highly recommended!

    This book is a must have for nursing school. It wasn’t the required book for our program, but after another student and I purchased this book, everyone was borrowing it. It was such a hit, the staff is adding it to the book list for new students. LOVE THIS BOOK!!

    This book is a great quick reference for preclinical preparation. It covers the most common diseases and medical conditions. The nursing interventions, rationales, and expected outcomes were actuate and easy to understand.
