The assessment stage is described as the
corner stone of the Nursing. Assessment is a process by which a judgment is
made concerning the value or merit of something when it is compared with a
standard. It is a process by which the nurse judges the patient health status.
Alternatively, it is a continuous process of collecting data about the patient,
community response, health status, strengths and concerns. The data are
comprehensive and multifocal reflecting both historical and current data about
biological, psychological and social functioning, as well as environmental and
lifestyle factors which may affect health.
