I am just starting to use nursing diagnoses in school and we really haven't gone over them. Can someone please explain the difference between a growth and development nursing diagnoses versus a health promotion diagnoses? For children this would be easier for me but I am working with adults and it seems everything I come up with falls under health promotion. Also when writing up care plans
how do you word a diagnoses so it doesn't sound like what one of the books stated since they all state the risks/defining characteristics in pretty much the same way.
I really appreciate allnurses.com although I am not on here as much as I used to be due to school.
