Your care plan must include
? An Introductory paragraph;
? Community Assessment – a section which summarizes the findings of your windshield assessment and identifies a problem within the community;
? Community Nursing Diagnoses – a section which includes three appropriate community nursing diagnoses that address the problem identified above;*
? Planning/Interventions – a section which explains, hypothetically, how you could plan and intervene on behalf of the community regarding this specific problem;
? Evaluation – a section which details how you would evaluate the success of your interventions;
? A Concluding paragraph
* PLEASE NOTE: Community nursing diagnoses are worded somewhat differently than those pertaining to an individual patient. Your diagnoses will include the words ?Risk of,? ?Among,? and ?Related to? (Stanhope & Lancaster, 2012, p. 413). Here is an example given by your text:
Risk of infant malnutrition among families in Bernalillo County related to lack of regular developmental screening.
Regarding this specific Assignment:
? With the exception of your introductory and concluding paragraphs, the above sections will use the headings listed above.
? This care plan will be written in narrative form, meaning that no charts or tables will be included. Your work will consist of well-organized paragraphs which explain your plan of care.
? Your paper will be a minimum of 5 pages in length (excluding the title page and reference list).
? Use Stanhope & Lancaster (2012) as a reference and properly cite it within the body of your paper. Include at least four additional references which will also be properly cited within the body of your paper.
? Please note that no more than 10% of the paper may be direct quotations; you must synthesize the material rather than merely quoting it.
