Nursing Diagnoses: Definitions and Classification is the definitive guide to nursing diagnoses, as reviewed and approved by NANDA-I. The 2015–2017 edition of the classic and internationally recognised text has been rigorously updated and revised, and now provides more linguistically congruent diagnoses as a result of the Diagnostic Development Committee’s attentiveness to understanding the translation of the diagnostic label, definition, defining characteristics, related factors, and risk factors. Each of the 235 diagnoses presented are supported by definitions as well as defining characteristics and related factors, or risk factors. Each new and revised diagnosis is based on the latest global evidence, and approved by expert nurse diagnosticians, researchers, and educators.
New to this edition:
26 brand new nursing diagnoses and 13 revised diagnoses
Updates, changes, and revision to the vast majority of the nursing diagnosis definitions, in particular the Health Promotion and Risk Diagnoses
A standardization of diagnostic indicator terms (defining characteristics, related factors, and risk factors) to further aid clarity for readers and clinicians
All introductory chapters are written at an undergraduate nursing level, and provide critical information needed for nurses to understand assessment, its link to diagnosis, and the purpose and use of taxonomic structure for the nurse at the bedside
A new chapter, focusing on Frequently Asked Questions, representing the most common questions received through the NANDA-I website, and at global conferences
Five nursing diagnoses have been re-slotted within the NANDA-I taxonomy, following a review of the current taxonomic structure
Coding of all diagnostic indicator terms is now available for those using electronic versions of the terminology
Companion website featuring references from the book, video presentations, teaching tips, and links to taxonomy history and diagnosis submission/review process description www.wiley.com/go/nursingdiagnoses

I finally used this book to complete an assignment and came to find that there was a publishing error and pages 357-388 are missing with pages 389-421 being duplicated. Not only does this not help me for my coursework, it is too late to return to the seller. Not sure if I am the only one with this problem, but I would not be surprised if there is a large batch of these floating around.
This was a very useful resource for writing nursing care plans for my first semester of Fundamentals. However, now going into my second semester where we cover Psych and Med Surg, I have found that this NANDA book doesn't seem to be a complete and all inclusive reference for nursing diagnosis. I find myself having to turn to Google when writing care plans this semester.
I got the kindle version of this book and I sincerely wish I had gotten a hard copy. I find navigating the book to be too difficult and normally I love the kindle versions because I can spotlight search through the book. I had to get this book for making care plans and so far every time I try to use it I end up just googling things instead.
The speed and quality of the package were great! I was expecting rationales to be placed into this book, seeing as I'm still a nursing student. For someone more advanced, or someone wanting just the lists of nursing diagnoses, this is a great buy!
