Despite the decreased number of patients' health problems based on the scenario, the participants nominated only nursing diagnoses, chosen from the short catalog of the total 36 taught nursing diagnoses during the educational intervention.

Prezerakos were responsible for the scientific supervision of the project, the study's design, and the manuscript's critical review.
Nursing care plans are vehicles for communication, records for the provided care, and constitute essential tools for everyday care. Despite the rich international research activity in this field, in Greece, such efforts remain fragmented. The overriding problem is the fragmented or completely absent use of the nursing process. Although all undergraduate courses in nursing departments of both universities and technological educational institutes teach the specific way of providing nursing care, it is not applied in everyday practice.
This fact is attributed to the nurses' shortage.
If we accept this assumption as true, then we end up back at the point of the definition of the specific issue because thereby, the nurses working in Greek health sector become unable to demonstrate this shortage, and ultimately when they are asked to argue for the need for a prompt resolution to this problem, they measure their workload using indicators based on medical and not on nursing diagnoses. Thus, it becomes imperative to look for effective ways to introduce the use of the nursing process within standardized language.
The purpose of this study was to investigate the effectiveness of an educational program on home nursing care plans based on NNN for registered nurses working at primary healthcare settings in Peloponnese, Greece. The participants were randomly selected by the 6th Regional Health Authority of Greece. The selection criteria were: The chosen method of clinical seminars included the following direct and indirect teaching and learning methods: To evaluate the educational intervention, a questionnaire developed and standardized in the context of Chatzopoulou's doctoral thesis was used after her graded permission.
The questionnaire consists of 22 items related to the evaluation of the trainees' attitude towards the documentation of nursing care and the application of the nursing process. The Cronbach's alpha coefficient for these items was 0.
Items about the participants' demographic and educational characteristics as well as their previous teaching and clinical experience on the nursing process and documentation were added at the end of the questionnaire.
Lastly, one clinical scenario was used in order to evaluate the trainees' knowledge and skills on the nursing process. The questionnaire was completed at the beginning and after the end of the educational intervention.
All the trainees were informed about the purpose of the study. It was explained to them that their participation was voluntary and their answers were confidential. Control of the variables' normality was performed with the Kolmogorov—Smirnov test. The comparison between normal regular variables before and after the educational intervention was done by paired statistical control Z of Wilcoxon Z , p and between qualitative variables with paired statistical control Mac Nemar p.
The mean years after their graduation were Of the participants, Participants were asked to report their knowledge Table 1 and experience Table 2 in the implementation of the nursing process before and after the educational intervention.
Seven Moreover, the majority of the participants before and after the educational intervention reported no use of any nursing taxonomy for documentation in every day practice pre 15 [ Before the educational intervention, only five participants After the educational intervention, a statistically significant number of 15 participants Based on the clinical scenario, before the educational intervention, participants recognized almost 10 different patients' health problems, but only 2 of them were nursing diagnoses according to the NANDA Taxonomy Table 3.
Trainees improved their skills on nursing diagnoses' formulation. Their skills were evaluated regarding the: Additionally, 10 participants On the other hand, 15 Similar results were found for the individualization of defining characteristics. On the other hand, 1 5. Contrary, the participants did not improve their skills in formulating the desired outcomes. After the educational intervention, participants' responses regarding their attitude for the use of nursing process and care plans for documentation were not correlated with the number of scenario patients' health problems recognized.
Moreover, nurses' responses regarding their attitude for the use of nursing process and care plans for documentation were not associated with the skills regarding nursing diagnoses' nomination before and after educational intervention.
The majority of participants reported little knowledge and experience in the implementation of nursing process and care plans before and after the educational intervention, and there were no statistical differences between their responses.
It is worth noting that none of the participants reported excellent knowledge or experience in the implementation of the nursing process and care planning. These results suggest that nurses may have overestimated their knowledge and experience for the implementation of nursing process and nursing care plans before the educational intervention.
Although taking part in the educational intervention provided them with knowledge on the content of the nursing process and care plans, their responses for overall knowledge were not significantly improved, but remained almost the same.
The preservation of their moderate attitude for documentation of care by using the nursing process is possibly due to their original false beliefs on the use of standards. Consequently, the results revealed that the participants reported what they wish to use for nursing care documentation rather than what they actually use.
Despite the decreased number of patients' health problems based on the scenario, the participants nominated only nursing diagnoses, chosen from the short catalog of the total 36 taught nursing diagnoses during the educational intervention.
Participants' responses regarding selection and proper formulation of defining characteristics were statistically significantly improved after the educational intervention. Knowledge, attitudes, and skill level of nurses are important for understanding and integrating documentation to nursing process in daily practice and hence to ensure positive outcomes for patients.
Although nurses seem to have a positive attitude towards documentation and the nursing process, a significant gap in knowledge and skills in regard to planning and documentation of nursing care still remains. Although nurses seem to have a positive attitude toward documentation and the nursing process, an important gap in knowledge, planning, and documentation of nursing care still remains.
The present intervention has demonstrated positive results in improving knowledge and attitudes to documentation and nursing process and could serve as a basis for education in clinical practice. Introduction of new practices in home care nursing involves challenging changes. The successful involvement of nurses is considered as an important success factor.
Educational interventions on nursing documentation and nursing diagnoses lead to more systematic and standardized documentation. Volume 28 , Issue 2.
