A major concern of nursing executives and educators is the need for nurses to have the necessary skill to make appropriate clinical judgments and problem solve efficiently and effectively. It is imperative that decision-making and critical thinking skills be taught in undergraduate programs and those courses provide necessary clinical experiences as well as reinforced once in the practice setting. Diagnostic reasoning is a component of clinical decision-making and involves the recognition and analysis of signs and symptoms in clinical situations. It is the most critical element of the nursing process and if performed incorrectly the remaining steps of the process are likely to be invalid and be detrimental to the effectiveness of nursing practice. The purpose of this study is to discover the relationship between diagnostic reasoning and nursing languages. The nursing languages North American Nursing Diagnosis Association, (NANDA), the Nursing Outcomes Classification (NOC), and the Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC) provides the nurse with the necessary tools to effectively and efficiently identify actual and potential health problems and develop an appropriate plan of care for patients. For the purpose of this presentation the components of cognitive ability will be described: decision making, critical thinking and diagnostic reasoning. However, the main focus will be the concept of diagnostic reasoning and the use of nursing standardized languages. Data elements essential to the study of diagnostic reasoning and nursing standardized languages include user characteristics, diagnostic reasoning measures, and language use indicators. A data collection tool integrating these measures using automated documentation systems will be discussed with implications for education and practice.
