So I've been studying for my CCRN and keep running into the Nursing Diagnosis sections. It makes me wonder ... has anyone used them for any practical purpose since getting out of nursing school
I, unlike a lot of nurses, do understand why we learned them -- to help us learn to think through problems and potential problems our patients might encounter. However, I can't for the life of me figure out why or how they're used in the real world. For that matter, I have never seen them used
in the real world.
