Results: 9 nursing diagnoses with altered patterns were found, only one main diagnosis was prioritized: ineffective peripheral tissue perfusion r/c insufficient knowledge of the disease process with a problem associated with hypertension evidenced by edema, were the interventions performed satisfactory in the pregnant woman, before the CP gestational hypertension and the CR malignant hypertension, being the results defined by the time of intervention and evaluation.
