After viewing the home visit, write an essay of 500-750-words in which you do the following:
Identify, prioritize, and describe at least four problems.
Provide substantiating evidence (assessment data) for each problem identified.

Scripted Dialogue Portion
Utilizing the information learned from the home visit, health histories, and discharge orders, write a scripted dialogue in which you provide Sallie Mae with education that describes her problems and the interventions identified to improve her condition. Consider Sallie Mae’s physiological, psychosocial, educational, and spiritual needs when developing your dialogue.
Your dialogue should resemble a script. The following is an example of a few sentences from a scripted dialogue:
Nurse: “Good morning, Salle Mae, my name is ______ and I will be your nurse today. I understand you are experiencing problems with ________.”
APA format is not required for this part of the assignment, but solid academic writing is expected.
