Purpose: To evaluate the diagnostic accuracy of third-year Nursing students and to analyse its possible relationship with attitudes towards nursing diagnosis.
Methods: The Scale for Degrees of Accuracy-Number Criteria by Lunney, and the Spanish version of the Positions on Nursing Diagnosis scale were used in order to measure the diagnostic precision of a case scenario. Findings: The mean score for the attitudes towards nursing diagnosis was 103.5 (SD 18.47), and the mean score for diagnostic accuracy was 3.94 (SD 0.66). There was no significant correlation between them (r = 0.162 and P = .113).
Conclusion and implications: Diagnostic reasoning was not influenced by the attitude towards nursing diagnosis. The measuring of the diagnostic accuracy in case resolution improves clinical reasoning skills and diagnostic accuracy.
