A Closer Look at NCPs

In most nursing workplaces, patient care is a team effort. Whether it’s one nurse taking over another’s shift, or a collaboration between different healthcare professionals, having a consistent care plan is what will ensure that everyone is on the same page.

A nursing care plan contains all of the relevant information about a patient’s diagnoses, the goals of treatment, the specific nursing orders (including what observations are needed and what actions must be performed), and a plan for evaluation. Over the course of the patient’s stay, the plan is updated with any changes and new information as it presents itself.

Creating a care plan

Depending on the workplace, nursing care plans can vary. In most cases, however, you can expect that they will include the same pertinent information: the diagnoses, the anticipated outcome, nursing orders, and evaluation.


After a nurse performs a patient assessment and the diagnosis is made, the next step is to map out goals for the patient for both the short- and long-term. For instance, if a patient is diagnosed with acute pain from hypertension, the desired outcome might be that the patient begins a new prescription and the pain becomes is controlled.

Putting NCPs into Practice

Learning how to create a nursing care plan is something you will learn a lot about in nursing school, and then later, on the job as a Registered Nurse. The good news is that you are not on your own.

There are many online resources that provide templates, sample care plans, and even video tutorials to help you learn the ropes of NCPs. There’s even an app from NANDA that gives you access to over 300 common care plans.
