The book Nursing Diagnoses in Psychiatric Nursing Care Plans and Psychotropic Medications is written by Mary C. Townsend. Standardization of nursing actions and common terminology is important in providing consistent care over time, between nurses, across shifts, and even between different healthcare agencies. This text incorporates the nomenclature from Taxonomy II that has been adopted by NANDA-I.
There are people who believe that the NANDA list is incomplete. My intent is not to judge the completeness of this list, but rather to suggest the need for clinical testing of what is available. NANDA encourages nurses to submit new diagnoses or considerations after testing and investigation of that diagnosis have been conducted in the clinical setting.
