Hi,

Do you still need help on those questions? If so, I would need to know the following:

-the length/word number requirements for the answer to each question.

-for the question #2, does that refer on making decision on what interventions to apply when making nursing care plan? Please explain further what you need in this question.

Thanks.

Customer: replied 2 years ago.
There is no word length requirement. On question two it wants to know if the information listed is enough to make a. clinical nursing diagnosis
Expert:  Lani S. replied 2 years ago.

You use NANDA-I as reference for Nursing Diagnosis, am I right?

When do you need these?

Thanks.
