Even though evaluation is the final step of the nursing process, it is also a step that starts at the beginning of the contact and occurs continually as the contact progresses. The word evaluate means to determine worth. Many methods can be used to evaluate nursing care, but the key to evaluation is to determine the correct criteria that demonstrate the value of the nursing contact. Criteria for evaluating client outcomes are derived from the objectives developed with the family. Only data relevant to the nurse’s intervention are collected. Because the outcomes of nursing interventions occurring during one visit may not be apparent until later, both long-term and short-term evaluative criteria should be developed. The family does not have to contribute data unless they choose to do so. DIF: Cognitive Level: Application REF: pp. 361-362

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
