|A nursing diagnosis is a clinical judgment about an individual, a family or a community’s responses to actual and potential health problems/life processes. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the nursing diagnoses of university first year students for the patients they undertook the care of and to determine interventions relevant to these diagnoses. The study universe consisted of Adiyaman University Nursing School first year students who were continuing their education during the 2014-2015 educational year and took the Fundamentals of Nursing Course. The chest disease, neurology and internal medicine clinics were chosen as the student clinical internship areas. The data were collected by evaluating the 63 nursing care plans prepared by the students and the data collection forms the students had used for nursing care. The patients cared for at the chest disease, neurology and internal medicine clinics by the students included in this study.
