Updated with NANDA-I 2012-2014 Diagnoses
Here’s the 4th Edition of the resource you’ll turn to again and again to select the appropriate diagnosis and to plan, individualize, and document care for more than 800 diseases and disorders. A new, streamlined design makes reference easier than ever.
Only in the Doenges’ Manual will you find for each diagnosis…defining characteristics presented subjectively and objectively • sample clinical applications to ensure you have selected the appropriate diagnoses • prioritized action/interventions with rationales • a documentation section, and much more!
And, Davis’s Nursing Diagnosis and Care Planning Resource Center online features a searchable database of over 800 diagnoses, plus a wealth of clinical tools and valuable information.
I have the 1st edition of this text and it is the best nursing book. Love it. The only drawback to this edition is the index card is not laminated. I own many care plan books and this book is beautiful. Not only great for nursing school, but I actually use it at work. I don’t need a care plan book that gives me diagnosis for particular disorders like Carpenito-Moyet or lists it by category like Sparks and Taylor. This is alphabetical by diagnosis so its very easy to find what you need. The cover changed from the 1st edition, but thankfully the content is as insightful, helpful, knowledgeable and lovely as every. Thank you Mesdames Doenges, Moorhouse, and Murr.
This is one of our required texts, but it’s very handy with the chapter of all the nursing diagnoses and interventions.
This was a required purchase for my nursing class but this will be great to start making care plans! Excited to crack this baby open because it will help with every step and make the pain of making care plans at least a little better with all the info I need being in one book.
