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.
I 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?
We had a short section in our fundamentals book about the difference, I think the major difference is it's maintaining/enhancing something that's already right and it's in my name to write up about things that are wrong.
We 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).
