Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Carole Ann Kenner, PhD, RN, FAAN (The College of New Jersey)
Description: This book presents the clinical application of nursing diagnosis to care across the lifespan, covering from hospital to home care. The previous edition was published in 1997.
Purpose: The purpose is to focus the nursing diagnosis and interventions on nursing problems and not the medical model. The target audience is students and practicing nurses.
Audience: The target audience are students and practicing nurses. The author is a known expert in the application of the nursing process.
Features: The book presents NANDA nursing diagnosis within the context of Gordon's Functional Patterns. Its focus is on the nursing diagnosis and interventions for which nurses have control. Unique to the book is its use of a conceptual approach to this application. It takes each functional pattern and applies the nursing process, identifies nursing diagnosis, and asks readers whether they picked the correct diagnosis, giving hints for how to make that determination. Another unique feature is the boxed information that offers material applicable to adults, women's health, children, psychiatric, gerontologic, and home care areas. This way readers can easily find the section most applicable to their client population or setting. The algorimths help guide the reader through the decision-making process.
Assessment: There is no direct competition for this book as it really does focus on the nursing diagnosis as it relates to interventions nurses can control. The conceptual approach is unique as well.
