Diagnosis and Patient Goals
In order to write a Diagnosis and Patient Goals case study paper, you must carefully address a number of sections in a specific order, with specific information contained in each. The guideline below outlines each of those sections.
|Section||Information to Include|
|Introduction (patient and problem)||
|Nursing Physical Assessment||
|Nursing Diagnosis & Patient Goal||
Your paper should be 3-4 pages long and will be graded on how well you complete each of the above sections. You will also be graded on using APA Style and applying nursing journals to the treatments and interventions. For integrating nursing journals, remember the following:
- Make sure to integrate citations into all of your paper
- Support all claims of what the disease is, why it occurs and how to treat it with references to the literature on this disease
- Always use citations for the information you learned from a book or article; if you do not cite it, you are telling your reader that YOU discovered that information (how to treat the disease, etc.)
