Through a synthesis of prior knowledge, clinical experiences and skills, evidence based best practices, and care of patients during the capstone experience, you will develop a comprehensive care and teaching plan for a patient for whom you have provided care during this clinical rotation. The paper will be framed within the four components of NCLEX-RN test plan. Multiple concepts contained within each component provide the content guide for your investigation. The NCLEX-RN test plan can be found on the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBON) website. It would be wise to read this document before you proceed with the project to identify the concepts within each of the four components.
A MINIMUM of five (5) scholarly sources from peer reviewed journals is required for this project. While textbooks are good resources for providing guidance regarding pathophysiology, manifestations, standard assessments and interventions, the majority of supporting evidence driving the care you provide for your patient must come from other scholarly sources. Online sources should be considered additional and will not be accepted as a scholarly source unless it is a peer reviewed online journal. Wikipedia is not a source monitored for accuracy and should not be used. Be very thorough in your research and writing. You will be using the information to create a teaching plan.

Each section of the paper will culminate in a nursing diagnosis, actual or potential related to the patient for whom you have provided care. For the final section of the paper, you will create a teaching plan based on the nursing diagnosis of highest priority you identified from the assessment and care of your patient. The teaching plan should be related to your diagnosis and should reflect patient teaching principles learned previously. You will need to refer to prior resources for a review of teaching learning principles.
