Abstract

Predicting violent behavior is a major concern for nurses as well as other mental health professionals. Two diagnostic assessment systems (Nursing Diagnosis-NANDA and Psychiatric Diagnosis-DSM III-R) were compared in their ability to predict assaultive behavior. The nursing diagnosis potential for violence suggested a difference (p = .07) between the assaultive and control subjects. No differences were found between assaultive and control subjects on psychiatric diagnoses. Nursing diagnosis is based upon measurable behaviors and is time specific. Clinical implications and further research endeavors in this area are suggested.
