About the Book

Fully updated and revised by editors T. Heather Herdman, Shigemi Kamitsuru, and Camila Takáo Lopes, NANDA International Nursing Diagnoses: Definitions and Classification, 2024-2026, 13th Edition is the definitive guide to nursing diagnoses, as reviewed and approved by the NANDA International (NANDA-I) Diagnosis Development Committee (DDC). 

In this new edition of a seminal text, the editors have provided a more in-depth discussion on diagnosis and its linkage to assessment, using Kamitsuru’s Tripartite Model of Nursing Practice to differentiate between interdependent interventions based on medical and organizational standards of care, and autonomous nursing interventions based on nursing standards of care. 

Functional Health Patterns are used as an assessment framework to guide nurses in collecting relevant data to drive accuracy in nursing diagnosis. Ontology, classification and taxonomy are described, and the axial structure of our diagnoses – which has seen significant revision – is explained in detail. An overview on all changes and revisions in the classification is provided, along with updated research priorities and future foci for the Diagnosis Development Committee and the NANDA-I Association.

Thank you for helping us spread the word about our latest publication!

    Gostaria de ter esse livro estou no quarto período de enfermagem e ainda tenho muitas dificuldades com os diagnósticos de enfermagem

    • Bom dia Gabriela, tudo bem com você?

      Me chamo Carlos Augusto, sou morador de Brasília e estou no quarto ano do curso de enfermagem. Vamos esperar a tradução do livro para o português e em breve deve estar nas livrarias mais importantes do Brasil.

      Você tem dificuldades em mexer com o livro? Não é uma coisa simples mas também não é uma coisa fácil, mas te digo, quando você aprender você não terá mais problemas, muitos alunos até profissionais formados da área tem dificuldades na utilização das normas e da taxonomia.

      Qualquer dúvida só mandar perguntas que a gente ajuda

      Abraços e boa semana
