    You don't pick a medical diagnosis and then try to find your nursing diagnosis. The face that pt is hypokalemic may or may not actually influence your nursing diagnosis... You must first assess your patient and review tests and labs and then determine your current nursing diagnosis.

    So the first question would be -- what did you find during your assessment?

    What else is going on with the patient?

    A patient can be hypokalemic for a variety of reasons. There is no nursing diagnosis that will apply to any patient with hypokalemia.
