The Nursing Process power point and video lecture.

The tool used in critical thing and decision making by nurses among other things is the nursing process. It includes
  • Assessment: The nurse collects data about the health status of the client. the data is subjective (what the client says) and objective (what you see) For assessment you use your eyes, ears and other tools . It involves Inspection, Palpation, Percussion, and Auscultation.

  • Diagnosis: Health problems or potential health problems are identified and formulated into nursing diagnosis. Nursing Diagnosis is the basis for planning nurisng interventions that help prevent, minimize or aleviate specific health issues.

  • Planning: The planning phase of the Nursing Process involves the devlopment of a nursing care plan for the client based on the nursing diagnosis.

  • Implementation: Implementation is the actual performance of the nursing interventions identified in the care plan

  • Evaluation: Evaluation is an ongoing process that enables the nurse to determine what progress the patient has made in meeting the goals for care.
