Is this a correct nursing diagnosis?

  1. Failed test R/T computer addiction secondary to Allnurses AEB too many hours on-line.

    I did not actually fail a test, I guess I should have said:

    At risk for failed test.....

    well then, there would be no s/s in that diagnosis if it were "at risk" :chuckle

    3. Signs and symptoms

    Thanks, I knew that! Too many hours on-line yesterday.

    P.S. I did not fail the test, I got an 89%

    Our teacher is so fast posting grades...class was over at 5, the grades were up before 7!!

    You would get a bad mark from our school... they write theirs differently than anything I have ever seen...

    NANDA: scd r/t scal

    in other words, nanda's official dx: self care deficit related to self care agency limitation (either a power component or a conditioning factor).

    Hey, I studied it I got the form down and I didn't make this up! Any others learned it this way??? PES is how I learned it before, and believe me it was way easy compared to this format because you have to actually memorize all the power components and conditioning factors!
