Evolve: Ackley: Nursing Diagnosis Handbook, 7th Edition - Care Plan Constructor
is a good resource for forming your overall nursing diagnosis.
NANDA publishes a specific list of diagnoses for profit. You won't find the list on their website; similar APA guidelines, they sell the complete book every year or something like that.
However NANDA diagnoses are republished all over the internet and in reputable care plan books.
An example of a few NANDA diagnoses that I used in a care plan last term were "Acute Pain", "Impaired Physical Mobility", and "Ineffective Coping".
My school then has us flesh out these vague diagnoses with etiology and manifestations. The general framework is: NANDA diagnosis, related to ABC (disease or morbidity), as evidenced by XYZ (signs and symptoms).
An example of a full nursing diagnostic statement that I used was "Ineffective coping related to loss of vision, personal vulnerability, perception of inadequate control, impaired adaptive behaviors, and problem solving skills, as evidenced by flat affect, social isolation, inability to meet role expectations, poor self-esteem, uncertainty about choices, and deference in decision-making."
My favorite care plan book is Gulanick & Myers
. All of the information above was sketched out in the book, making it easy for me to customize it to my individual patient.
