Mapping nursing intervention data into the Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC): process and rulesNursing diagnosis
NLM Title AbbreviationNurs Diagn
AbstractTOPIC: Uniform language in nursing is needed to clearly depict the contributions of nursing in the healthcare arena but little data related to nursing interventions and patient outcomes are standardized. PURPOSE: To investigate the feasibility of mapping nonstandardized nursing interventions into standardized language using the Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC). SOURCE: Data from a Midwest community hospital's computerized information system. CONCLUSIONS: Results demonstrate that nonstandardized nursing orders can be mapped into standardized language using the NIC.
