Nursing students will encounter many patients with Type 2 Diabetes during their careers. This WebQuest asks the nursing student to develop a teaching plan for a patient with Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus.



One of the best ways to learn something is to teach it. For that reason you are going to teach a newly-diagnosed diabetic patient all about his diabetes! Developing a teaching plan will assist you in becoming more comfortable with patient teaching and it will help you learn more about the nursing care of a patient with Type 2 Diabetes. This WebQuest will guide you along the way! Follow the steps of the WebQuest and you'll be on your way to a successful teaching plan!
