Detailed Careplan

Directions: There are 5 steps to the nursing process: Assessment, diagnosis, planning, implementation
and evaluation. You will begin here the night before clinical by creating your plan based upon the
information gleaned during pre-planning. THEN, you will implement during clinical.
About interventions: Consider what you will need to do to care for the patient. Include activity, safety,
mobility and teaching in this plan. Also consider any physical care requirements needed such as bathing,
dressing, feeding, repositioning, dressing changes, ambulation, oral care, sensory aids and assistive
devices. You need a minimum of 2 in each intervention box.
