Nursing Diagnosis: Iron deficiency anemia





Rationale: The client displays the following symptoms: extreme fatigue; pale skin; headache, lightheadedness, and dizziness; brittle nails; shortness of breath; damaged or dry skin; brittle nails; and inflammation of the tongue. All these symptoms are associated with iron deficiency anemia.

Intervention 1:Iron supplements Problem Based Care Plan


Rationale: As a nurse, I will advise the patient to take iron supplements (including drops, capsules, pills, etc.) to treat the symptoms of the disease and increase the levels of iron in the body (Cleveland Clinic, 2018)


Goal Intervention 1: To replenish iron stores.


Reference: Cleveland Clinic. (2018). Oral Iron Supplementation. Retrieved from:

Intervention 2: Treating underlying causes of iron deficiency


Goal Intervention 2: To treat the underlying condition or disease


Rationale: If iron supplements do not increase the levels of iron in the body, it is more likely that the iron deficiency is a result of bleeding or malabsorption of iron (Mayo Clinic, 2022). Depending on the cause, treatment may include medications (including oral contraceptives) to stop heavy periods; surgery to get rid of a bleeding fibroid, a tumor, or polyp; or antibiotics to treat peptic ulcers.

6.      Identify how you will evaluate each intervention/goal (with a rationale) that the client will achieve the health goal (20pts)





Evaluation of Intervention 1: Assess the symptoms of the disease


Rationale: By evaluating the symptoms of the illness, I will determine if iron supplements were effective. The effectiveness of the intervention lies in its ability to reduce the symptoms.


Evaluation of Intervention 2: Evaluate the iron levels in the body


Rationale: By evaluating the iron levels in the body, I will determine if the medications and antibiotics were effective in treating the underlying condition.
