Nursing is both a science and an art concerned with the physical, psychological, sociological, cultural, and spiritual concerns of the individual receiving care. The science of nursing is based on a broad theoretical framework; its art depends on the caring skills and abilities of the individual nurse. The nursing profession continues work to formally define what nurses do and what makes nursing unique, leading to a body of professional knowledge distinctive to nursing practice. A significant portion of defining the work of nursing has involved the establishment of a commonality of terminology or standardization of nursing language. Although several standardized nursing languages have been developed, the nursing diagnoses most commonly used today are the NANDA-I nursing diagnoses (see inside cover). In 1980, the American Nurses Association (ANA) defined nursing as “the diagnosis and treatment of human responses to actual or potential health problems.” As the nursing profession has evolved, the definition of nursing has been expanded to reflect that growth “nursing is the protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human responses, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, communities, and populations.

The American Nurses Association (ANA) Social Policy Statement of 1980 was the first to define nursing as the diagnosis and treatment of human responses to actual and potential health problems. This definition, when combined with the ANA Standards of Practice , provided impetus and support for the use of nursing diagnosis. Defining nursing and its effect on client care supports the growing awareness that nursing care is a key factor in client survival and in the maintenance, rehabilitative, and preventive aspects of healthcare. Changes and new developments in healthcare delivery in the past 40 years have given rise to the need for a common framework of communication to ensure continuity of care for the client moving between multiple healthcare settings and providers. Evaluation and documentation of care are important parts of this process. This book is designed to aid the practitioner and student nurse in identifying interventions commonly associated with specific nursing diagnoses as proposed by NANDA International (NANDA-I). These interventions are the activities needed to implement and document care provided to the individual client and can be used in varied settings from acute to community/ home care.
