I wrote my very first careplan over Thanksgiving break! The darn thing was 17 pages long and I literally thought it was going to KILL me! For those of you who don't know, careplans are strategies designed to guide health care professionals involved with patient care. Such plans are patient specific and are meant to address the total status of the patient. Care plans are intended to ensure optimal outcomes for patients during the course of their care. Might I add, they are a massive pain in the butt. While I was supposed to be "enjoying" my Thanksgiving break and stuffing my face full of amazing food, I was busy for about TEN long hours. I have now been waiting patiently for nearly two weeks to get my grade back, today I checked my grade and I made a 93%! There was a note at the bottom stating that overall it was a good careplan but, I left out some important medication details. Oh well, better luck next time. I will take my A and smile! :)
I DID IT! Now, this makes me feel like I just "might" be able to survive nursing school. Maybe one day I will be able to write my name with the pretty little letters RN following it!
Just 523 days till graduation, counting weekends, and breaks!
