Nurse Life Care Planning
What is a Nurse Life Care Planner?
A Nurse Life Care Planner creates Life Care Plans for individuals who have sustained injuries or have chronic conditions that contribute to physical, functional, and/or cognitive limitations, and who require complex long-term care.
When preparing a life care plan a Nurse Life Care Planner uses the Nursing Process, which as outlined by The American Nurses Association (ANA) includes: assessment, diagnosis, outcomes/planning, implementation, and evaluation. Using this process and in collaboration with other members of the healthcare team such as physicians, a report is created that will consist of an organized plan that estimates the reasonable, and necessary future healthcare needs and associated costs.
In this specialty, nurses take an intensive training course to gain certification as a Nurse Life Care Planner and utilize their knowledge, education, and experience when creating a plan for a patient. Nurse Life Care Planners are also trained on how to determine the usual, reasonable, and customary cost of services through their access to resources and conducting research.
