:spin: A "nursing diagnosis" generally consists of three parts (P.E.R.).
The P stands for the patients response to the problem.
The E stands for the etiology of the problem.
The R stands for the signs and symptoms of the problem.
Only those patient problems which can be addressed by the nurse can be subject to "nursing diagnosis". A problem that requires the collaboration of both a nurse and another health care professional (an M.D. for example) can,aslo, be subject to a nursing diagnosis. A problem, such as certain medical problems, which can not be addressed in any manner by a nurse can not be subject to a nursing diagnosis.
Thus given the above the P might be: Anxiety ;E might be:r/t financial distress ;R might be: with insomnia and anorexia.:spin:
