This is for informational purposes only and not to be used as a template Patient education goes hand-in-hand with improved patient outcomes and quality of life. Educating the patient is an integral part of the nurse’s role in patient care. In order to ensure the success of the patient teaching plan, the processes involved in developing a nursing patient teaching plan should be centered around the patient and inclusive of the family. Instructions Patient Assessment This step requires the analysis and organization of information about the patient. Determine the patient’s level of understanding about her disease, injury or condition. Use the information gathered about the patient to judge how well she will be able to understand and apply what is taught to her. Be sure to factor in cultural considerations that are specific to that patient such as ethnicity and religion. It will be necessary to factor in any information you have about the patient’s level of development as well. It may be necessary for the nurse to motivate the patient in order for her to learn. Ability to learn is affected if the patient is too tired, in pain, upset or distracted. Planning Formulate patient goals. Take the patient and the family’s point of view into consideration, as their input will have an effect on their outcomes. Patient outcomes and motivation are directly associated with the amount of input they have in determining their goals. The goals must be realistic and able to be achieved by the patient. Identify how the teaching plan will be carried out. Implement the plan according the patient’s learning style (audio, visual, or kinetic) as opposed to the nurse’s teaching style.
Develop nursing goals based on desired health outcomes. They should be patient-centered and based on health outcomes for the patient’s health status and quality of life. Determine Method of Implementation The method of implementation of the nursing patient teaching plan should be specific to the patient’s learning style and desired outcomes that were identified. Prepare to document patient responses and level of understanding as the nurse perceives them while the teaching plan is implemented. Prepare to document any other relevant information that will assist with the evaluation of learning. Formulate Evaluation Process An evaluation process will need to be formed in order to assess patient outcomes. The following specific elements of patient learning will need to be evaluated: patient knowledge, behavior, attitude, and skills. The evaluation should include a review of the documentation that details patient responses and level of understanding that were recorded during the implementation steps. The evaluation plan should include observations of the family’s understanding of what will be required of them for the patient to achieve desired outcomes. The last key element of the evaluation plan is the nurse’s recommendation for follow-up procedures to be used in the event that the patient’s learning was not sufficient to produce desired outcomes.

ADDITIONAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE CLASS
Discussion Questions (DQ)
- Initial responses to the DQ should address all components of the questions asked, include a minimum of one scholarly source, and be at least 250 words.
- Successful responses are substantive (i.e., add something new to the discussion, engage others in the discussion, well-developed idea) and include at least one scholarly source.
- One or two sentence responses, simple statements of agreement or “good post,” and responses that are off-topic will not count as substantive. Substantive responses should be at least 150 words.
- I encourage you to incorporate the readings from the week (as applicable) into your responses.
- Your initial responses to the mandatory DQ do not count toward participation and are graded separately.
- In addition to the DQ responses, you must post at least one reply to peers (or me) on three separate days, for a total of three replies.
- Participation posts do not require a scholarly source/citation (unless you cite someone else’s work).
- Part of your weekly participation includes viewing the weekly announcement and attesting to watching it in the comments. These announcements are made to ensure you understand everything that is due during the week.
APA Format and Writing Quality
- Familiarize yourself with APA format and practice using it correctly. It is used for most writing assignments for your degree. Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for APA paper templates, citation examples, tips, etc. Points will be deducted for poor use of APA format or absence of APA format (if required).
- Cite all sources of information! When in doubt, cite the source. Paraphrasing also requires a citation.
- I highly recommend using the APA Publication Manual, 6th edition.
Use of Direct Quotes
- I discourage overutilization of direct quotes in DQs and assignments at the Masters’ level and deduct points accordingly.
- As Masters’ level students, it is important that you be able to critically analyze and interpret information from journal articles and other resources. Simply restating someone else’s words does not demonstrate an understanding of the content or critical analysis of the content.
- It is best to paraphrase content and cite your source.
- For assignments that need to be submitted to LopesWrite, please be sure you have received your report and Similarity Index (SI) percentage BEFORE you do a “final submit” to me.
- Once you have received your report, please review it. This report will show you grammatical, punctuation, and spelling errors that can easily be fixed. Take the extra few minutes to review instead of getting counted off for these mistakes.
- Review your similarities. Did you forget to cite something? Did you not paraphrase well enough? Is your paper made up of someone else’s thoughts more than your own?
- Visit the Writing Center in the Student Success Center, under the Resources tab in LoudCloud for tips on improving your paper and SI score.
- The university’s policy on late assignments is 10% penalty PER DAY LATE. This also applies to late DQ replies.
- Please communicate with me if you anticipate having to submit an assignment late. I am happy to be flexible, with advance notice. We may be able to work out an extension based on extenuating circumstances.
- If you do not communicate with me before submitting an assignment late, the GCU late policy will be in effect.
- I do not accept assignments that are two or more weeks late unless we have worked out an extension.
- As per policy, no assignments are accepted after the last day of class. Any assignment submitted after midnight on the last day of class will not be accepted for grading.
- Communication is so very important. There are multiple ways to communicate with me:
- Questions to Instructor Forum: This is a great place to ask course content or assignment questions. If you have a question, there is a good chance one of your peers does as well. This is a public forum for the class.
- Individual Forum: This is a private forum to ask me questions or send me messages. This will be checked at least once every 24 hours.
