Psychiatric Nursing Care Plans, Paperback


The most comprehensive psychiatric nursing care planning text available assists students and practitioners in providing effective care in a variety of settings.

Clear presentation of information, consistent use of the nursing process, correlation of nursing and medical diagnoses, and prioritization of interventions make this text an invaluable resource.

Grounded in the latest classification of the "Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV-TR)" and the most current list of NANDA-approved nursing diagnoses, this text covers a wide range of disorders, their psychopathology, and appropriate nursing interventions with rationales.

Care plans use real clinical situations and include therapeutic and nontherapeutic dialogue examples to familiarize nurses with likely scenarios, and equip them with the tools they need to feel confident in any clinical setting.
