Sep 10, 2019

If you draw a blank when it comes to your a plan of care once you've got your differentials, you're not alone.

I rely on step-by-step approaches to my care as an NP to keep me on track and make sure I'm not missing anything. 

In this video, I'll share with you the approach I use and recommend for ANY patient, to give safe, high quality care and keep you from laying awake at night, worrying.

Plus, I'll share 2 real world truths to help save you some frustration when it comes to making your plans.

Once you've watched, I'd love to hear from you.

Are there any steps here you can add to your plans of care?

Or, is there an approach that's working for you that you can share with me and the other NPs watching?

Leave me a comment below. Be sure to share your thought directly in the comments, no links or videos as they may be removed.

Thanks so much for watching. Hang in there, and I’ll see you soon.
