Abstract

There is both an art and a science to nursing diagnosis. Art is a creative force, whereas science is a systematic force. Each is necessary for diagnosis development. This paper examines issues confronting nurse clinicians, educators, and scientists interested in continued efforts to generate and validate diagnoses. It concludes with suggestions of tasks necessary for sound diagnosis development.
