Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

A nursing diagnosis is defined as a clinical judgment about individual, family, or community experiences/responses to actual or potential health problems/life processes. A nursing diagnosis provides the basis for selection of nursing interventions to achieve outcomes for which the nurse has accountability (NANDA-I, 2009).

Nursing diagnoses are seen as key to the future of evidence-based, professionally-led nursing care – and to more effectively meeting the needs of patients. In an era of increasing electronic patient health records, standardized nursing terminologies such as NANDA-I, NIC and NOC provide a means of collecting nursing data that are systematically analysed within and across healthcare organizations and provide essential data for cost/benefit analysis and clinical audit.

Nursing Diagnoses: Definitions and Classification is the definitive guide to nursing diagnoses, as reviewed and approved by NANDA-I. Each nursing diagnosis undergoes a rigorous assessment process by NANDA-I’s Diagnosis Development Committee, with stringent criteria used to indicate the strength of the underlying level of evidence.

Each diagnosis comprises a label or name for the diagnosis, a definition, defining characteristics, risk factors and/or related factors.

The 2012–2014 edition is arranged by concept according to Taxonomy II domains, i.e. Health promotion, Nutrition, Elimination and exchange, Activity/Rest, Perception/Cognition, Self-perception, Role relationships, Sexuality, Coping/Stress tolerance, Life principles, Safety/Protection, Comfort, and Growth/Development. It contains revised chapters on NANDA-I taxonomy, and slotting of diagnoses into NANDA and NNN taxonomies, diagnostic reasoning and conceptual clarity, and submission of new/revised diagnoses. New chapters are provided on the use of nursing diagnoses in education, clinical practice, electronic health records, nursing and health care administration, and research. A companion website hosts related resources.

This book is not ebook, which I found very annoying because there is no table of contents or anyway to bookmark pages (that I've discovered). When purchased it can only be accessed through Amazon Cloud Reader (PC) or Amazon Kindle Reader App (smartphone) , which would be fine if it was as easy to navigate as Kobe Reader. I am not sure if its just how this book is set-up or if it is the application that is used to read it; in either case there is no table of contents icon with the Kindle app. So, I have to scroll a bar on the bottom of the page to roughly the beginning and then go page-to-page to find the section I want to be in. This is painful due to the nature of this book: finding nursing diagnoses. When you want to find a diagnosis, you must scroll to the beginning of the book and then search page-to-page to find the diagnosis you are looking for. And there is no back button to the previous page, so if you hit the wrong diagnosis, you must start the process over by scrolling back to the beginning of the book.

As for the content, it is very helpful and informative to any nursing student including definition, defining characteristics and related/risk factors of most diagnoses. The navigation system makes it difficult to browse through the book to find this very useful information.

If you are willing to put up with the crappy navigation and the limited accessibility (for those without smartphones) then this would be a smart purchase for any nursing student.

Format: Paperback
The definitive book on nursing knowledge - what nurses KNOW versus just what they DO - explains the problems that nurses identify, diagnose and use in practice. The provision of the underlying knowledge (not just the diagnosis label, but also the definition, defining characteristics or risk factors (things we identify in assessments) and the related factors (those things we try to intervene upon) is critical for ensuring documentation in electronic health records that supports nursing's view of the patient. Without this, the EHRs will only show medical care - and we all know that the medical diagnosis may be the primary reason the patient ends up seeking care, but it is their nursing needs that keep them in the hospital - if we do not clearly identify them, nurses will end up losing their profession to technicians who implement medical interventions....and ultimately, patients will lose!

This was one of the required texts for my first semester of nursing school, so I bought it. When it came time for care plans, this thing was totally useless because there are no rationales at all. Yes, you can look up a diagnoses, but when you are doing care plans professors want the reasons behind the diagnoses. So I found myself wasting time trying to search through textbooks. Save yourself the money and go buy a cheaper diagnoses book with tons of rationales already right there.

As an adjunct for the City University of New York I am forced to purchase my own books if I want to provide the quality education that the students need. As far as the book it is a necessary purchase not a purchase for pleasure. Nursing diagnosis are ineffective and not used.

Not the best Nursing Diagnosis book out there. This book doesn't even give you sample interventions or anything, literally just NANDA Diagnosis and its big. Unfortunately, I probably will be buying another book that is older and more compact so that I can carry it around.

It is good . But expected rationales as well as diagnosis to be in the book. I don't know if it would recommend it.

Being a Nursing student I look for any way to save time and still get my homework AND house work done, putting NANDA on my kindle was a great way to do that.

I was resistant to purchasing this book in hopes that my nursing program would provide it for us with our med/surg books, I couldn't wait any longer and broke down and purchased it. It is extremely helpful in developing care plans and nursing diagnosis'. Well worth the money!
