THE HEALTH HISTORY AND PHYSICAL EXAMINATION
As you learned in NR302, before any nursing plan of care or intervention can be implemented or
evaluated, the nurse conducts an assessment, collecting subjective and objective data from an
individual. The data collected are used to determine areas of need or problems to be addressed by the
nursing care plan. This assignment will focus on collecting both subjective and objective data,
synthesizing the data, and identifying health and wellness priorities for the person. The purpose of the
assignment is twofold.
To recognize the interrelationships of subjective data (physiological, psychosocial, cultural and
spiritual values, and developmental) and objective data (physical examination findings) in
planning and implementing nursing care
To reflect on the interactive process that takes place between the nurse and an individual while
conducting a health assessment and a physical examination
