Find an adult who is not related to you who is willing to let you take a health history. 2. Download the NR305_Milestone1_Form from Doc Sharing. You will type your answers directly into this Word document. Your paper does NOT need to follow APA formatting, however, you are expected to be clear in your communication by using correct medical terminology, grammar and spelling. 3. Review the examples in Chapter 10 of your textbook to gain insight into how to document the health history. Avoid words like frequently, improved, increased, decreased, good, poor, normal, or WNL as they may have different meanings for different people. Instead, document the specific data that led you to these conclusions, e.g., 3x/day instead of “frequently,” or consuming 4 servings of vegetables/day instead of “increased” vegetable servings. 4.
