Nursing Care Plans

The end product of the nursing process’ planning phase is a plan of care or also known as a nursing care plan. We have collated and created a wide selection of nursing care plans for our nurses and student nurses to use. Feel free to use these nursing care plans (NCPs) to your assignments and requirements.

Nursing care plans provide a means of communication among nurses, their patients, and other health care providers to achieve health care outcomes. Without the planning process, quality and consistency in patient care would be lost.

Care plans can be informal or formal:

  • Informal nursing care plan is a strategy of action that exists in the nurse’s mind.
  • Formal nursing care plan is a written or computerized guide that organizes information about the client’s care.

Formal care plans are further subdivided into standardized care plan and individualized care plan:

  • Standardized care plans specify the nursing care for groups of clients with common needs.
  • Individualized care plans are tailored to meet the unique needs of a specific client or needs that are not addressed by the standardized care plan.

Here is a list of nursing care plans that can be found in Nurseslabs:
