In the early 1970s, nurses and educators in the US realized that nurses independently diagnose and treat "something" related to patients and their families that was different from medical diagnosis, and began working out a taxonomy and body of best practices under the auspices of NANDA (originally but no longer the North American Nursing Diagnosis Association), now NANDA International
The referred diagnosis is established according to NANDA International
It has been updated to include the most recent NANDA International
nursing diagnoses, outcomes classifications, and nursing interventions classifications.

Examples of other problems are the human responses to health problems and life processes that were identified by NANDA International
(2007) as the diagnostic focus of nursing, e.g., powerlessness and stress overload.
Also, Blackwell will work in partnership with NANDA International
(Philadelphia, PA) to produce the society's official publication, The International Journal of Nursing Terminologies & Classifications, which was also formerly published by Nursecom.
For the step of identifying the nursing diagnoses, nurses use terminologies that facilitate communication among professionals, among them, the taxonomy proposed by NANDA International
(NANDA-I) stands out.
This guide helps practicing and student nurses identify interventions commonly associated with specific nursing diagnoses as proposed by NANDA International
. These interventions are the activities needed to implement and document care provided to the individual client, and can be used in varied settings from acute to community to home care.
Doenges (adult psychiatric/mental health nursing, retired, Beth-El College), Moorhouse, and Murr supply nurses and nursing students with a pocket guide to interventions associated with specific nursing diagnoses as proposed by NANDA International
for settings from acute to community/home care, with a focus on adults.
This manual is designed to aid the student nurse and practitioner in identifying interventions commonly associated with specific nursing diagnoses as proposed by NANDA International
The NANDA International
(NANDA-I) included this diagnosis in the domain 1: Health promotion and it has three defining characteristics: "Choose a daily routine without exercise"; "It shows a lack of physical fitness"; "Verbalizes preference for activities with little exercise"; and five related factors, "Deficient knowledge about the benefits that physical activity brings to health"; "Lack of interest"; "Lack of motivation"; "Lack of resources"; "Lack of training to exercise".
Designed for all nursing disciplines and levels, from students to expert clinicians, this handbook offers a plan of care for each of the NANDA International
(NANDA-I) approved nursing diagnoses.
