Nursing DX Independence/Dependence Conflict

Could someone please explain this nursing diagnosis to me? I haven't been able to find it in any of my books. I've only been out of nursing school 3 years, so it must be very new. The internet hasn't helped much either. Any info or online resources that could help me with it would be greatly appreciated :) Thanks, Erin (erinmarieduffy@msn.com)

This is just a guess, but I would think that it is a psychological dependency rather than physical.
Thought I would at least pass it on, maybe it will help.

I wonder if this is decisional conflict? Independence/dependence is not one of the NANDA accepted nursing diagnosis. A great resourse is Nursing diagnosis: application to clinical practice by lynda juall carpenito isbn; 0781719704.
good luck

In college, independent, meant nursing decision on the nursing diagnosis, and dependent meant colaborating with or Dr. decisions. Will this help? Could this mean a conflict between health care workers?
