Nursing diagnoses mostly differ from medical diagnoses



Nursing diagnoses mostly differ from medical diagnoses in that they are:


  • dependent upon medical diagnoses for the direction of appropriate interventions.
  • primarily concerned with caring, while medical diagnoses are primarily concerned with curing.
  • primarily concerned with human response, while medical diagnoses are primarily concerned with pathology.
  • primarily concerned with psychosocial parameters, while medical diagnoses are primarily concerned with physiologic parameters.
