Whatever Happened to the Nursing Process?

  • Peter Wells (a1)
Extract

The introduction of a systematic approach to their work by nursing colleagues in the last decade provoked a great deal of comment and literature some of it amusing if perhaps slightly dismissive. Not a great deal is known about how widespread is the practice, or how well it is working in places where it has been adopted. Indeed the DHSS has set up a working party within the Nurse Education Research Unit of King's College to obtain enough basic information with a view to developing a research project into the effectiveness of the nursing process.
