Does anyone have a recommendation for nursing care plan software for PDA? I am looking for something that gives nursing diagnoses applicable to both surgeries and medical conditions.

The RN suite may have nursing diagnoses. Otherwise I haven't found any PDA software for nursing diagnoses.

I know there are tons of books out there with the diagnoses and then interventions and such listed. In one of the programs I have there are diagnoses listed and interventions but it's really not easy to use because they are listed with a ton of other things and it's not just NANDA diagnoses.
All my programs were bought through www.skyscape.com
and they do have this...
Handbook of Nursing Diagnosis, 10th Ed.
Nursing Diagnosis Handbook
, 7th Ed.
I actually have the book for the above link. There are 2 books actually...a big one and a little one that are basically the same and I have the little one. It's not a bad book.
Nurse's Pocket Guide: Diagnoses, Prioritized Interventions, and Rationales, 10th Ed.
You can test drive any of them.
