This article main purpose is to provide evidence of the importance and application of standardized terminologies in the Nursing practice. A patient care scenario will be used to identify how NANDA, NOC, and NIC elements are applicable. Data, information, knowledge, and wisdom (DIKW) framework will be used to create the patient care scenario.

Many factors combine together to affect the health of individuals and communities. Health is described as a complete state of physical, mental and social wellbeing, not merely the absence of disease or sickness, Hence why health is your responsibility.
Nursing informatics I think that informatics in nursing is focused on both information management and communication. The use of health IT is already essential to delivering care, recording data, and measuring care. The American Nurses Association defines nursing informatics as “a specialty that integrates nursing science, computer science, and information science to manage and communicate data, information, and knowledge in nursing practice. Nursing informatics facilitates the integration of data, information, and knowledge to support patients, nurses and other providers in their decision-making in all roles and settings. This support is accomplished through the use of information structures, information processes, and information technology.” ANA.

Nursing diagnosis is a clinical judgment about individual, family, or community responses to actual or potential health problems/life process. It provides the basis for selection of nursing interventions to achieve outcomes for which the nurse has accountability (Carpenito-Moyet, 2010). In developing a nursing diagnosis the nurse must be familiar with the North America Nursing Diagnosis Association International (NANDA-I) standards.
Patient assessment is vital to ensuring patient needs are met, their status is evaluated, and the best possible care is provided. Every patient is different and possesses unique needs. This concept analysis will examine the continued evolution of patient assessment. As the nurses treat the patient as a whole, they need to know what makes up the individual. The nurse starts by looking at the individual as a whole, is he or she clean and fed.
