Background of the Study: Nursing process as the intellectual basis of the nursing profession in solving patient’s problems is defined as a systematic method of planning and rendering care to the patients. This process has been used by the nursing profession since it was articulated in the 1960’s. This intellectual basis of care was taught in the nursing education as a thinking guideline in solving patients’ problems. For the past years, writing of student nursing care plan has been a part of the teaching- learning tool of the nursing education to prepare the students in the application of nursing process in the nursing practice. However, 1 of 6
  • 2. University of Luzon Graduate School, Dagupan City problems sought in the evaluation of these nursing care plans were revealed by the different authors on teaching strategies in nursing. It was revealed that nursing care plan writing of the students was a misnomer, written only after the care has been given and students resort to copying already written standardized care plans in their nursing text books. Evaluation on the written care plans depends on the preference of the clinical instructor, which created further confusion on the students. To settle these arguments a study leading to the proposal of common assessment guidelines in the preparation and evaluation of student nursing care plans was conducted.9. Statement of the Problem: This study critically analyzed the student nursing care plans from the different schools of Nursing in Dagupan City. The study had focused on the application of Nursing Process in the written student nursing care plans along the phases of: assessment, diagnosis, planning, implementation and evaluation. Results of the study served as the groundwork in the creation and proposal of common guidelines in the preparation and evaluation on the nursing care plans of student nurses. Specifically, it answered the following questions: 1. To what extent does the level of accomplishment of the student nursing care plan entries meet the requirements of nursing process along the following areas: 2 of 6

A dialogue among the faculty of nursing programs should be initiated to come up with a common consensus on how nursing process will be taught and nursing care plans will be used as a written assignment in the clinical area. Such discussion will be beneficial and provide a consistent message to the student nurses. 2. A try-out on the proposed common guidelines in the preparation and evaluation of student nursing care plan is recommended to the nursing teaching-learning groups. 3. A more in-depth study should be conducted to validate the results of the present study. 6 of 6
