This study has been conducted with the purpose of determining retrospectively during planning of nursing process, and to find out mistakes made by them. The data for this study have been gathered by evaluating the 330 nursing process undertaken during the clinical application of the course titled "Fundamentals of Nursing" by the first year students of Florence Nightingale Nursing School in the years of 1999-2000, 2000-2001, 2001-2002. The nursing processes examined in this study included 1284 expected patient outcomes and related nursing interventions. 4.6% (n=59) of expected patient outcomes and 4% (n=SI) of nursing interventions was observed to be mistakes. The observed mistakes were of the type such as using terms that are not from the nursing terminology or lack of terminological integrity, using non-specific expressions in nursing outcomes (e.g. depending on, within limitations etc.), confusion between phases of nursing process.
