Abstract

The Nursing Outcomes Classification (NOC) includes with each outcome a set of indicators to provide concrete referents for measurement of the outcome. Not all indicators are relevant for all instances of the rating of an outcome. The choice of indicators to use varies by clinical setting. Patterns of variation in use of indicators have implications for both nurse clinicians in understanding their practice and nurse informaticists in developing nursing information systems.
