Introduction: Infection with Human Immunodeficiency Virus and Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome has become a public health problem, so the nursing care of people with this disease should be directed to the real problems and to the most common and main potentials. Objective: To determine the prevalence of nursing diagnoses in people with HIV / AIDS receiving outpatient care in health institutions in Bucaramanga, Colombia. Methods: A cross-sectional study in adults with HIV / AIDS who were receiving outpatient care in some health institutions in Bucaramanga. Results: Prevalences were found for 79 diagnoses, with a minimum of 4 and a maximum of 46 diagnoses per person. Six diagnoses had a prevalence greater than 50%, which were risk of infection and risk of injury with 98.9%, followed by ineffective protection with 96.7%, risk of impaired skin integrity with 95.6%, impaired sleep pattern 57.1% and 53.8% sedentary lifestyle. Conclusions: This research is a proposal to standardize the care provided nursing and care plans for people living with HIV / AIDS based on the nursing process and the use of standardized language. It is imperative the necessity for research in this area with studies of high prevalence.
