Original description from the release of the 14th Edition:

Now in its 14th edition, Nursing Diagnosis: Application to Clinical Practice is a respected resource that offers definitive guidance on key elements of nursing diagnosis, its role in the nursing process, and its application to clinical practice. Section 1 thoroughly explains the role of nursing diagnosis in the nursing process and in care planning. Section 2 offers a comprehensive A-to-Z guide to current nursing diagnoses, including the most recent diagnoses approved by NANDA International. Section 3 focuses on collaborative problems.

Nursing Interventions Classifications (NIC) and Nursing Outcomes Classifications (NOC) are listed for every NANDA-I diagnosis. Key features such as Author's Notes and Errors in Diagnostic Statements help the nurse to understand the concept behind the diagnosis, differentiate one diagnosis from another, and avoid diagnostic errors.
