- 0Does anyone else struggle with these?
I *barely* get unhealthful response diagnosis, I feel thrown for a complete loop with wellness diagnosis.
I'm at the point I just need to struggle through to get it, I was just looking for a little sympathy.

- 0Nope, first semester of four for a BSN.
We had to do a survey assessment of ourselves, come up with a diagnosis (most of our class has wellness diagnosis, I am making Health Seeking Behavior fit) and as the semester moves on we are working out a detailed personal care plan.
It's so much easier to see what's wrong than work with what's not wrong.
- 0I am in an ADN program and I am unfamiliar with a 'wellness diagnosis'.
I understand the NANDA approved nursing diagnoses, however, I cannot recall a differentiation being mentioned between an unhealthful response diagnosis and a wellness diagnosis... Can you explain further?
- 0One of the wellness diagnosis that several classmates are using is Readiness for enhanced coping. A wellness diagnosis does not have an etiology, but it does have an NOC/NIC.
I know that explanation sucks, but that's as good as it gets from me tonight. Perhaps at the end of the semester I'll have a better grasp on them.
ETA, these are NANDA
- 0The differentiation was never presented to us...although I am aware of that particular diagnosis and others like it.
All nursing diagnoses were presented as just that, and only those that were NANDA approved were to be used.
Has anyone else been explained the difference? Or is it just my school? Is this a difference in BSN vs. ADN programs?
- 0Oct 17, '06 by smk1We have the CArpenito Moyet book which lists all of the NANDA diagnoses and some NIC interventions. Wellness diagnoses are not as plentiful as the others, but there are quite a few. If I remember later after class I will post a few. Asoldierswife, you probably have seen them many times, just didn't think of them under the terminology "wellness diagnosis". (BTW I am in a ADN program also).
