NSG 4055 Week 1 Project
NSG 4055 Week 1 Project
While treating the chronically ill, a major challenge is
developing a plan of care that addresses the specific needs of a patient and a
caregiver. You need to be in close touch with patients and their support group,
family and peers, to come up with an ideal plan.
In this course project, you are going to develop a plan of
care for a chronic illness group of your choice using the Healthy People 2020
Topics. While executing the tasks of this project, remember that while you need
to give a general overview of the biomedical considerations of the case, the
focus should always be on the psychosocial elements. Your perspective in this
care plan should be the patient’s goals rather than those of the medical team.
Each week, you will complete a part of this project. You
will submit a final completed project in Week 5. Be sure to take the time to
carefully complete each of the weekly assignments and then put it all together
in Week 5.
Ensure that you save a copy of this course project after you
have submitted it at the end of this course. You are expected to resubmit this
project along with the other course projects at the end of the Registered Nurse
(RN) to Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program. File Transfer Protocol
(FTP) details will be provided in the Capstone course.
