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 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.

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!

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 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.

This book has helped me tremendously through the long journey of nursing school. Every time I had one of those long 15 page care plans due, I would pick up this book and it would help me fill in all the blanks. It is broken down into cardiac care plans, pulmonary care plans, general health care plans, etc. There is a care plan for just about all patients; only requires you to personalize it. For my care plans required from my professors, one care plan requires 20 or more nursing diagnoses so this realllllyyy came in handy when I was running out of ideas. This book not only gives you a nursing diagnoses, but also related factors, risk factors, actions and interventions with the rationales, and goals. I would absolutely recommend this book to everyone! You will not regret it!

This book has helped me so much!

It is listed by NANDA diagnosis.
Has the NANDA deffinition
Related Factors
Defining Chacteristics
Ongoing Assessments - with the action and rationale
Theraputic Interventions - with the action and rationale
Education with the action and rationale

Great book to use.

I do not like the Nursing Care Plans: Guidelines for Individualizing Client Care Across the Life Span
I do like the Nurse's Pocket Guide: Diagnoses, Prioritized Interventions and Rationales
This one is pretty good Lippincott's Manual of Psychiatric Nursing Care Plans

I was able to use this book at every care plan writing juncture for 3 different classes so far (Med-Surge I, Med Surg II, Therapeutic Use of Self, a little bit with Psych too). BUY IT FOLKS... trust me, you won't regret it. (Only reason I didnt give it all the stars is because I now feel that the book could be just a tad more detailed at times...but like I said, I still use it til this day)
