Purpose of the Assignment

Ms. Julia Jones, a 68-year-old African American woman, has just been diagnosed with primary open-angle glaucoma. Her ophthalmologist has explained the pathophysiology of the disease to her and is trying to select the best treatment option for her. You are the nurse working with the ophthalmologist, and Ms. Jones has asked you about the eye drops the doctor has recommended. Mrs. Jones’s physician has recommended Combigan, one drop in the right eye every 12 hours. Your client has never administered eye drops, and she does not know anything about the medication her ophthalmologist has prescribed. She is interested in how the medication works, the side effects, how it is administered, and why it is so important in treating her glaucoma.
Develop a nursing care plan using a template directly after these instructions to address Ms. Julia Jones’s concerns.
For this assignment, include the following: assessment and data collection (including disease process, common labwork/diagnostics, subjective, objective, and health history data), three NANDA-I approved nursing diagnoses, one SMART goal for each nursing diagnosis, and two nursing interventions with rationale for each SMART goal for a client with a musculoskeletal disorder.
Use at least two scholarly sources to support your care map. Be sure to cite your sources in-text and on a reference page using APA format.
