The importance of the nursing process has been demonstrated in the past decade and therefore a need exists to investigate whether or not nurses feel they are able to utilize that process to its maximum and whether or not barriers exist which prevent such maximum utilization. The utilization of the nursing process in evaluation of nursing care has been demonstrated. The criterion for evaluation of record keeping has been nursing care. Therefore, the nursing process is related to the quality of nursing care and to the quality of record keeping.
