Revised to incorporate the 2007/2008 NANDA-approved nursing diagnoses, the Twelfth Edition of this classic text offers definitive guidance on key elements of nursing diagnosis and its application to clinical practice. Section One thoroughly explains the role of nursing diagnosis in the nursing process and in care planning. Section Two, a comprehensive A-to-Z guide to current nursing diagnoses, has been reorganized into four parts: Individual Nursing Diagnoses, Family/Home Nursing Diagnoses, Community Nursing Diagnoses, and Health Promotion/Wellness Nursing Diagnoses. Section Three focuses on collaborative problems. Nursing Interventions Classifications (NIC) and Nursing Outcomes Classifications (NOC) are listed for every NANDA diagnosis. An appendix shows current NANDA diagnoses grouped under functional health patterns.
