You will not find a nursing diagnosis of Paranoid Personality Disorder... the diagnosis is based on your client needs.

Consider:

Anxiety

Disturbed thought process

Disturbed sensory perception

Perform a nursing assessment and see if any of the above are diagnoses will help your client.

I Googled Paranoid Personality Disorder and got more than 850,000 hits. You ought to be able to find massive amount of information about the condition itself. Then follow PsychNurseWannaBe's advice and look at your patient's needs.

Also, check out the Nursing Student Forum where there is a wealth of guidance on how to come up with nursing diagnoses and careplans.
