Some of the diagnoses have references, but not all of them do. Why doesn’t NANDA-I print all of the references used for all of the diagnoses?

NANDA International

NANDA-I did not begin publishing references until recently. We began by asking submitters to identify their three most important references, and those are what were published. Only in our last edition (2012–2014) did we begin to publish the full list of references, due to the large number of requests we receive from individuals regarding the literature reviewed for different diagnoses. Obviously, as the diagnoses age, so too will the references unless the diagnoses are revised. It is probable that we will stop publishing the references after two or three cycles, but will then maintain them on the Members Only section in the NANDA International Website for researchers and others who want to access this information.
