Abstract: The nursing process is a universal concept which forms the bedrock for nursing practice and has been widely accepted as a scientific tool and an approach to guide nursing practice to promote quality of nursing care. Effectively applying the process is essential to realizing the high quality of nursing care and better health outcomes for clients. However, its use is reported to be low and incomplete in most settings notwithstanding its importance in client management. The study explored the perceptions and utilization of the nursing process in clinical practice at the War Memorial Hospital in Navrongo. A qualitative study design was used to explore the experiences of registered nurses. A purposive sampling method was used to recruit12 registered nurses as participants for the in-depth interviews and focus group discussion. Records were also reviewed to gather data for the study. The finding of the study indicates that participants perceive the nursing process as a scientific process and a tool useful to the work of nurses. The nursing process was not systematically used in the facility owing to some constrains.
