A nursing concept map, also known as a “nursing care plan”, is a tool for organizing and categorizing information. It can be used to organize, organize, and categorize information related to a nursing intervention, a medical diagnosis, or nursing tasks. There are many ways to organize the map, but the following four are the most common:
- Spider maps: spider mapping is the most common structure in nursing. These maps have a central topic and sub-elements that are grouped around it.
- Hierarchical Maps: These maps outline concepts from the top to the bottom with the main topic at top and the more specific concepts below.
- Flowcharts: These simple diagrams outline a workflow. The nursing flow chart represents the sequential order of the nursing process.
- System Maps: These maps, which are similar to flow charts, organize the workflow in a sequential order. System maps are different because they add inputs and outputs to the main diagram.
