Hypertensive disease is one of the most widespread socially significant diseases in economically and culturally developed countries. It affects people of both genders in active age and is a major cause of high mortality and disability.
Aim: This paper deals with the main aspects of nursing care for patients with hypertensive disease. Nurses are a part of the therapeutic team. A conceptual framework, that will ensure control over the disease process and an adequate nursing intervention, is needed for provision of quality nursing care.
Methods: One of the main sociological methods, the documental one, is used for the purpose of this study.
Results: The main issues that were reviewed were connected with the risk factors for disease emergence, clinical manifestations, monitoring, treatment and prevention of complications. A significant part of the nurse's professional behavior is raising the health culture of patients and their families as well as observing ethical rules for nursing. As a result of the review, a detailed plan for nursing care is developed that will provide a possibility for a faster recovery and resocialization of the patient.
