Assignment NU302: Care Plan Case Study
Instructions for the Case Study Assignment
The role of the nurse, as you will learn this semester, is to integrate and apply knowledge from your general education background, health-related sciences, and evidence-based nursing science in the application of the nursing process to the nursing care of patients in acute care settings. The nurse builds a plan of care based on the health assessment findings using knowledge from pharmacology, anatomy and physiology, pathophysiology, microbiology, nutrition, psychology, and other sciences. Nursing is practiced as part of an interdisciplinary health-care system, and it is critical for nurses to understand the perspectives of other disciplines in order to contribute to the patient’s care plan. You can use the case study provided or choose a client from your clinical rotation for this assignment. You’ll conduct a thorough examination of the nature of their health changes, the pathophysiological and psychosocial aspects of their medical needs, and how the interdisciplinary team contributes to the treatment plan while the patient is in the hospital and as discharge plans are implemented.
1. Gather the necessary information from one of your patients or read the case study information from the chart materials provided.
2. Go over the information from the patient’s assessment. What other tests could you conduct in addition to the ones provided? What would you expect to find out about this patient? Create a care plan (using the template below) based on the most pressing issue (1 nursing diagnosis, 1 goal, 3 interventions for each goal, 1 rationale for each intervention and evaluation for each goal). Complete an in-depth analysis that demonstrates your ability to prepare a case study using principles from pharmacology, pathophysiology, psychology, nutrition, and evidence-based nursing practice guidelines. Remember to include a patient introduction, pathophysiology, history, nursing assessment (given and any additional), and related treatments in your report.
3. Use APA format for your case study paper/care plan and include selected references.
4. A detailed grading rubric is included.
Criteria A case study is specific, analytical, conceptually sound, and based on scientific principles and knowledge application. It reflects evidence-based nursing care approaches and science, and it takes a holistic approach to understanding the patient and his or her nursing care needs.
Estimated completion time: 6 hours
