Nurse Life Care Planning
The American Association of Nurse Life Care Planners (AANLCP®) defines nurse life care planning as the specialty practice in which the nurse life care planner utilizes the nursing process in the collection and analysis of comprehensive client specific data in the preparation of a dynamic document. This document provides an organized, concise plan that estimates for reasonable and necessary (and reasonably certain to be necessary) current and future healthcare needs with the associated costs and frequencies of goods and services. The nurse life care plan is developed for individuals who have experienced an injury or have chronic healthcare issues. Nurse life care planners function within their individual professional scope of practice and, when applicable, incorporate opinions arrived upon collaboratively with various health professionals. The nurse life care plan is considered a flexible document and is evaluated and updated as needed. (AANLCP®, 2008)
