Please, I need “Concept Map DM (Diabetes Mellitus), NURSING 450 CARE PLAN WORKSHEET map” to be done based on the Case Study 91 which I uploaded. I uploaded the step 1, 2, 3, 4 to follow to do it.

I uploaded the “step 1, 2, 3, 4 to follow in order to do it. I uploaded the grading criteria to look and see how it is going to be graded. So, you have to follow the grading criteria as well in order to do it correctly. I uploaded the template map which is “NURSING 450 CARE PLAN WORKSHEET map” and it is the one that you are going to fill out and as well as the “Concept Map DM.”

To make it easier for you to follow, I am going to upload two examples that another student have already done which you can follow as a guide, remember not to put what is in the student example, it is there just as a guide because he is in the same class as me, if you put his information in my work, they will consider it as plagiarism which is bad.

Please see instructions below for more information on how to do the homework. Thank you so much.
