Concept Map on a Patient

Concept Map on a Patient

This assignment is designed to extend the learner’s use of concept mapping as a tool for clinical care planning. The nursing process continues to provide the foundation for organizing information and thought, whereas the mapping becomes the process for intentional critical thinking and clinical reasoning.

CO 1: Demonstrate the nursing process while providing basic care to individuals and families reflecting different stages
of the life span in the extended care, acute care, and community-based settings. (PO 1)
CO3: Demonstrate communication skills necessary for interaction with other health team members and for providing
basic nursing care to individuals and families. (PO #3)
CO4: Incorporate critical thinking skills into clinical nursing practice. (PO #4)
Due date: Your faculty member will inform you when this assignment is due. The Late Assignment Policy applies to
this assignment.
