Guidelines for Nursing Process: Maternal Nursing Patient Care Plan

Nursing Diagnosis:

Nursing diagnosis consists of the diagnostic label, “related to” and the “as evidence by” components.

A “Risk for…” diagnosis does not have “as evidence by”.

Diagnostic label: Is selected from the NANDA International Diagnosis.

“related to” the condition or etiology of the problem the patient is experiencing.

“as evidenced by” assessment data that supports diagnosis

Assessment as evident by (AEB), or data collection relative to the nursing diagnosis

Outcome (objective, expected or desired outcomes or evaluation parameters





(Each OUTCOME needs an evaluation statement)

Assessment supports the nursing diagnosis above. The assessment should reflect the “defining characteristics” that are expected to be present for that diagnosis to be appropriately utilized.

Types of data: subjective & objective

Sources of data

Nursing health history

Physical examination

Diagnostic data

The OB care plan will focus on short term outcomes.

“What do you/your patient want to achieve today? …at next assessment?”

Should be acceptable by the patient and the nurse, realistic, specific and measurable

Stated realistic behavioral terms that can be observed, measured and relevant to the identified nursing diagnosis.

Intervention –

The planned nursing actions that are likely to achieve the desired outcomes

Interventions should reflect on going assessment and activities that will assist in achieving the goal/outcomes.

Interventions should reflect independent nursing practice as well as collaborative practice.

Interventions should reflect the needs of this specific patient not a generic listing of possible interventions.

Interventions should include specifics like schedules, food choices, frequency, etc….

Rationales- reasoning behind your choosing the intervention; scientific explanation and/or underlying reason for which the intervention was chosen for your patient
