THE latest NIC and NOC labels ensure you are made aware of appropriate interventions and outcomes.
70 nursing diagnosis care plans include the most common/important NANDA-I nursing diagnoses, providing the building blocks for you to create your own individualized care plans.
150 disorders care plans cover virtually every common medical-surgical condition, organized by body system.
Health promotion and risk factor management care plans emphasize the importance of preventive care and teaching for self-management.
Basic nursing concepts care plans focus on concepts that apply to disorders found in multiple body systems.
Nursing diagnosis care plan format includes a definition/explanation of the diagnosis, related factors, defining characteristics, expected outcomes, related NOC Outcomes and NIC Interventions, ongoing assessment, and therapeutic interventions.
Disorders care plan format covers synonyms for the disorder (for ease in cross-referencing), a definition, common related factors, defining characteristics, expected outcomes, NOC Outcomes and NIC Interventions, ongoing assessment, and therapeutic interventions for each relevant nursing diagnosis.
Independent and collaborative/interprofessional interventions are highlighted by special icons that differentiate between independent and collaborative/interprofessional interventions.
