2 BOOKS IN ONE
1. Practical diagnoses to create a care plan
2. Up-to-date coverage of the latest psychotropic medications
Here’s the most complete and easy-to-use resource on how to develop practical, individualized plans of care for psychiatric and mental health patients. It’s the perfect quick reference now for clinical rotations…and later for practicing nurses.
This Pocket Guide is really two books in one! The first half provides the diagnostic information needed to create a care plan; the second half covers the safe prescription and administration of psychotropic medications. And, the concepts can be applied in a variety of healthcare settings…from in-patient hospitalization through the outpatient clinic…to home health and private practice.
This quick reference book is the perfect complement to your core psych text – either Essentials of Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing or Psychiatric Mental Health Nursing.

Nursing Student Psych Nurse must-have.“This was a must-have for my clinical rotation for psychiatric nursing. Fit in my pant pocket. Super useful for nursing diagnoses and concept maps that were required. Has "evidenced by", "goals", "interventions" and "outcomes" -- plus describes all the different conditions! I want one for all my rotations!”—Elle, Online Reviewer
