You are now ready to evaluate the effectiveness of the interventions and whether your goals for the client have been met. Remember, the nursing process is cyclical and ongoing. The evaluation phase includes assessment and reassessment.
For example, if you set a goal to lose 10 lbs in one month, maybe it wasn’t realistic to set this goal during the holiday season. Maybe your interventions should have included eliminating sugary drinks in addition to French fries.
This is like weighing yourself after one week of being on a new diet. Perhaps your goal was to lose one pound in 7 days. Your interventions included reducing the number of French fries you consume in a week and eating one apple a day for 7 days. After 7 days, your intervention was to reassess your weight. You step on the scale, and you gained two pounds!
