CHOICE Review

Much as physicians and psychiatrists use the International Classification of Diseases, 10th Revision, Clinical Modification (ICD-10-CM) and the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-V) to make diagnoses, this book is an important tool for consistent nursing diagnoses. Written by NANDA International, Nursing Diagnoses is updated every two to three years. This new edition includes 25 new and 13 revised diagnoses for a total of 235 diagnoses. Though some changes were made, the taxonomy system (named NANDA-I Taxonomy II) remains largely the same as in past editions. The book notes that NANDA International will revisit the taxonomy in 2016 and potentially make significant changes in the next edition of the book. The diagnoses section is organized into 13 domains (e.g., "Health Promotion," "Nutrition," "Coping Responses," "Comfort," "Elimination and Exchange"), and each domain has several subsections called classes. The diagnoses fall under the classes. For example, under the domain "Activity/Rest" is the class "Sleep/Rest." Under that are the diagnoses "Sleep Deprivation," "Readiness for Enhanced Sleep," and "Disturbed Sleep Pattern." Each diagnosis includes a definition, defining characteristics, and related factors. Diagnoses are based on evidence, but the references themselves are not included in this book. Instead, each diagnosis lists the original research to be made available at the NANDA-International website (http://www.nanda.org/). The book is much more than a listing of diagnoses; almost half of it focuses on using the book and the taxonomy system and, more broadly, making nursing diagnoses. Written in student-friendly language, the book features many charts, figures, case studies, and even an FAQ section. Overall, this volume, available in print and electronic formats, is an important tool for both student nurses and practicing nurses. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower- and upper-division undergraduates, two-year technical program students, graduate students, researchers/faculty, and professionals. --Carissa A. Tomlinson, Towson University
