The Nursing Process - This is a 5 step process nurses use to help look after their patients. It's steps are very similar to the steps of the scientific process. It is usually a systematic, rational method of planning and providing nursing care.

1 - Assessing - collecting, verifying and organizing data about the patient.; data is obtained from reports, the patient.s chart and measurements, your assessment, observation, other healthcare personnel, interviews, etc

2 - Diagnosing / Analyzing - forming your nursing diagnoses; a nursing diagnosis is a statement of an actual or potential health problem

3 - Planning - formulate your "plan" to assist the patient involves formulating goals/expected outcomes, setting priorities, and identifying nursing interventions to help patient reach their goals

4 - Implementing / Intervention - put your Nursing Care Plan into action

5 - Evaluating - evaluate your interventions, reasses and analyze, etc
