Nursing Diagnoses 2015-17 by NANDA International read book description and reviews

Nursing Diagnoses: Definitions and Classification is the definitive guide to nursing diagnoses, as reviewed and approved by NANDA-I. The 2015–2017 edition of the classic and internationally recognised text has been rigorously updated and revised, and now provides more linguistically congruent diagnoses as a result of the Diagnostic Development Committee’s attentiveness to understanding the translation of the diagnostic label, definition, defining characteristics, related factors, and risk factors. Each of the 235 diagnoses presented are supported by definitions as well as defining characteristics and related factors, or risk factors. Each new and revised diagnosis is based on the latest global evidence, and approved by expert nurse diagnosticians, researchers, and educators.

New to this edition:
26 brand new nursing diagnoses and 13 revised diagnoses Updates, changes, and revision to the vast majority of the nursing diagnosis definitions, in particular the Health Promotion and Risk Diagnoses A standardization of diagnostic indicator terms (defining characteristics, related factors, and risk factors) to further aid clarity for readers and clinicians All introductory chapters are written at an undergraduate nursing level, and provide critical information needed for nurses to understand assessment, its link to diagnosis, and the purpose and use of taxonomic structure for the nurse at the bedside A new chapter, focusing on Frequently Asked Questions, representing the most common questions received through the NANDA-I website, and at global conferences Five nursing diagnoses have been re-slotted within the NANDA-I taxonomy, following a review of the current taxonomic structure Coding of all diagnostic indicator terms is now available for those using electronic versions of the terminology Companion website featuring references from the book, video presentations, teaching tips, and links to taxonomy history and diagnosis submission/review process description

  • Very helpful if combined with other resources

    By Doylemedic
    This is a very detailed and helpful account of selecting a nursing diagnosis in a systematic and responsible manner. In order to complete the nursing process, however, you’d need this text in addition to one that outlines suggested intervenions and rationales. I feel that this is a good book to be well equipped in selecting the nursing diagnosis for a patient, family, or community, and I will be purchasing an additional book to make for a complete resource pairing. Again: This only has comprehensive information to select diagnoses. It does not recommend outcomes, rationales, or interventions.
  • Gosh

    I was under the impression that this book was similar to a nursing care plan, boy was I wrong. If a nursing care plan book is what your looking, DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK! It is not a nursing care plan book. It’s forcing me to rate.
