Nursing Care Plan and Evaluation
1. The nursing care plan evaluation is based upon the application of criteria appropriate for the student’s skill set. 2.All nursing care plans must be typed (Times New Roman, 12 point font). The nursing care plan form is available on Blackboard™ in each clinical course. 3. The grading rubric must be attached – last page of nursing care plan. 4. All relevant assessment tools used (physical, psychological, or psychiatric i.e. Braden Skin Assessment, Fall Risk) must be attached.
HIPAA (Health Information Privacy and Protection Act) mandates all health care providers protect patient privacy. Only information that the patient specifically releases may be shared with others. Only professional persons (students and instructors) involved in care are allowed access to the health care information. The student should be cautious about what information is shared verbally and with whom. If the student is approached for patient information by someone who purports to have authority, the best course of action is to refer that individual to the appropriate administrative personnel.
