This article describes the development, implementation, and evaluation of an educational program to update the knowledge and skills of nurses in the use of the nursing process and nursing diagnoses. Results 1 year later suggest improvement in participants' knowledge of the phases of the nursing process. Chart audits demonstrated this knowledge was more specifically applied to improved documentation of nursing diagnoses.
