NANDA stands for North American Nursing Diagnosis Association


Nursing Diagnosis

*Whew* Back in college (our "good 'ol days"), I can still vividly remember that we always carry this list - all the time, in our hospital duties, classroom discussions and the never-ending care plan assignments.

Sometimes it even flashes and visits me in my dreams haha! (Yes, those were the days).

But after I became a Professional, I am so grateful with those experiences because they reminded me to be on guard and always ready. Yes, we are not just health advocates but we deal with precious lives of our patients. I bless you and here you go! NANDA.

Nice work! It’s about time someone from our profession speaks out and do something about the dilemmas and concerns for IEN's here in Canada.

Valuable knowledge & forums. Very good for students
and even professionals.

Hi... I really like ur site very much. Its the first of it's kind
that I have seen, dedicated solely to nurses and nursing profession. I am from Nepal, a small country in South East Asia. I am a
student nurse awaiting results
of final year of 4 years(BSN). Some of the experiences
that you shared seemed like our own and really touched my heart. I am happy that if I need some guidance, I can contact you, and am sure I'll get positive response. Your site is a blessing to all nurses (and others as well).
Keep up your good work!
(Elisha, Nepal)
