  • Support the revision of existing and development of new nursing diagnoses.
  • To support and promote the implementation, clinical application and teaching and research methods on NANDA-I nursing diagnoses.
  • Contribute to the further development of the nursing diagnosis classification.

Our Vision

The NANDA-I Network Group of German Speaking Countries will contribute to the establishment of NANDA Taxonomy II as a unified standardized terminology of nursing diagnoses in German-speaking countries – for the development of nursing to achieve good nursing-sensitive patient outcomes.
