NANDA International Diagnosis Development CommitteeDiagnosis Submission Review
DDC members reviewed over 60 nursing diagnosis submissions during the two-day period. The range of submissions is exceptional, both in terms of content and international representation.

Each diagnosis submission has been assigned a status code and follow-up with submitters began on June 20.

NANDA-I members can view the status of diagnosis submissions at the status tracking page in our Knowledgebase (member log in is NANDA International Diagnosis Development Committeerequired to view this page).

A new process for online diagnosis submission was presented, and which is now open!

Administrative Processes Updated
The committee reviewed a completely-updated process for online diagnosis submission, committee review responsibilities, tracking the status of submissions and timely communication with submitters.

2013 Diagnosis Submission Member Vote Cycle
Plans for the September 2013 Diagnosis Voting Cycle were confirmed, to include all diagnosis submissions approved to proceed to Member vote. Member voting is part of our Diagnosis Submission Full Review Process.

Thank you!
Our sincere thanks to all those who submitted diagnoses during the 18 months. We appreciate your patience as our committee members (all volunteers) have reviewed this record-setting volume of submissions.

We also thank the Diagnosis Development Committee members. The time these dedicated individuals contribute to this effort is substantial and essential to our mission.
