5.0 out of 5 stars GET THIS BOOK! July 19 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
If you are a nursing student this book should be absolutely essential when you are starting out. This is especially the case during your first clinical round. I cannot count how many times this book helped me get through my several geriatric care plans for each patient (In a PCH setting your patients will almost always have a Risk for falls diagnosis). It did not have the best nursing care plans for my maternity rotation, but then I would recommend looking for those in your Maternity Nursing text. For Geriatric, Medical, and Surgical Nursing this is a must have! I'm sure it is great in other clinicals, but I can only speak for the ones I've completed. If you want a book that makes your NCPs seem a lot easier while provided excellent rationale, I recommend this text or the newer edition when it comes out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best I've Found July 13 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This care plan book has been very useful as a student nurse, especially compared to some other care plan books I've seen/used. It uses NANDA, NIC, and NOC. The most useful quality is that you can look up a diagnosis and it has suggested interventions, outcomes, etc. Definitely made it easier to write my care plans.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE BEST care plan book around Jan. 3 2011
By Malika Tazi - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I had previously bought another nursing care plan book, "Sparks and Taylor's Nursing Diagnosis Reference Manual," as it was referred to me by my first clinical instructor. But, as I started creating care plans, I found it pretty uninformative with not much detail suiting what my professor's need was for our assignments. I then borrowed a nurse's care plan book that she had used for her nursing school just the previous 2 years, "Nursing Care Plans: Nursing Diagnosis and Intervention," the 6th edition of THIS book. I LOVED IT! It suited ALL my needs and provided NANDA diagnoses and definitions, as the other did not. I came on Amazon to see if it was available and saw that this new 7th edition was coming out. I had to get this new one because it would be the best of the best. And sure enough, it is! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND to nursing students doing care plans as well as to nurses who create care plans as part of their profession. There are not enough good things I can write about this book. Highly recommended. I'm spreading the word to my classmates this upcoming semester.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Care Plan Book Dec 3 2010
By zeuster - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is excellent!!! I have purchased and returned several care plan books that were recommended to me by classmates because they were so convoluted with too oo much unnecessary stuff. This care plan book has everything you need in a nice concise format. The care plans and the disease plans are so easy to understand and conform to fit your needs. One of my best investments thus far!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars My Go To careplan book July 21 2011
By Ravenlynna - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I have purchased 4 careplan books and this is the one I use the most. Ackley and Ladwig's Nursing diagnosis handbook had too much information with many rationales that were simply not relevant in most cases. Swearingen's All-in-one I bought first and pretty much let collect dust though I still have OB and Peds to go through and it might prove handy. Townsend's Nursing diagnoses in psychiatric nursing was AMAZING for psych nursing, but not anything else. Gulanick and Myer's Nursing care plans I use over and over. It is well organized and the online care plan constructor means you don't have to carry it around with you everywhere. I L-O-V-E love IT!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Start...... March 26 2011
By E. Hansen - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have really enjoyed this care plan book and it has been a great asset to completing our monster care plans. While it does not have the most detailed information and I feel it sometimes lack a lot of in-depth knowledge, it shines where most care plan books do not - interventions and rational.

Our nursing program requires that every intervention requires in depth rational. Which makes sense. What I have found is that most care plan books do not include this information. Perhaps because they want you to make those connections yourself...hahaha :) But, lets face it.....if you knew everything, you wouldn't be in school or looking for a care-plan book.

I use this book to help me compile complete and concise interventions for my care plans. It has never failed me. It is spelled out in very simple terms and most information is grouped together. For example if your patient has pneumonia, you can find multiple diagnosis in the same area. No need to flip all over the book. I feel like a lot of time is wasted in searching for information, I have never had this problem with this book and it makes life a lot easier.

Bottom line, great book to use in addition to another care-plan book. Probably not the best to use as your sole reference book.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good book, but you'll need to use other resources as well April 4 2011
By RN Student - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is good. I wouldn't say it's horrible. I have used some of the care plans from it, but in combination with other sources. For example, I also have Achley & Ladwig (Which I love) - So sometimes I'll take the outcomes and/or defining characteristics from Ackley, and use some of the interventions from here just to switch it up a bit. But my main book is Ackley & Ladwig, I really believe that is the 'Best' care plan book out there. Like I said, this book wasn't horrible, but most likely, you'll need to use other sources as well.
