We present the assessment of a post-operative hysterectomy patient for cervical cancer where the nursing care process is applied. Methodology: A clinical case study, a 44-year-old patient was selected for convenience, applying the methodology of the nursing care process, the assessment was made through the 11 functional patterns of Marjory Gordon, the data were obtained from the clinical history, interview and physical examination of the patient. The main human responses are identified to analyze objective and subjective data, clinical judgments are made to implement care plans under the NANDA, NOC, NIC taxonomy. Results: 7 altered patterns were identified; considering as main diagnosis: acute pain and risk of complication; hemorrhage. Nursing care plans were implemented according to the Area model. A change score of +1 and +2 was obtained, which subsequently improved with nursing care.
