Truth be told, care plans are the most disliked assignments in nursing school. If you think that you will squirm yourself out of it for some reason then you’re in for a rude shock. They are a mandatory assignment for every class; mental health, intensive care patients, community care. If this crucial paper has been assigned to you, be prepared to stay up all night trying to make sense of the scanty information sources and little time given. Remember, finishing the assignment in time is only half the battle because it needs to make sense if a worthy grade is to be awarded.
