Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Carole Ann Kenner, PhD, RN, FAAN (The College of New Jersey)
Description: This reference manual is an illustration of the linkages among the common nursing classification system languages and NANDA. It is a quick reference guide.
Purpose: The purpose is to illustrate the connection between the nursing diagnoses (NANDA) to the interventions (NIC) and outcomes (NOC).
Audience: The intended audience is students, both undergraduate and graduates, practicing nurses, and faculty.
Features: A companion Web site has been developed where the reader can explore in depth the linkages between NANDA, NIC, and NOC. This book is also the basis for the creation of a customized care plan. Inside there are cases for application of NANDA, NIC, and NOC followed by an explanation of the linkages. The last half of the text is a complete list of the NANDA diagnoses with the appropriate NIC and NOC. The presentation of the material is in a tabular format that is easy to follow and use. The only shortcoming is the lack of pediatric case examples.
Assessment: This book is well done, easy-to-use. This is a good reference and will facilitate careplan development. Its stiffest competition is Wilkinson's Nursing Diagnosis Handbook with NIC Interventions and NOC Outcomes, 7th Edition (Prentice Hall Health, 2000).
