UI College of Nursing faculty members publish books
IOWA CITY, Iowa -- Faculty members in the University of Iowa College of
Nursing recently have published four books.
"Nursing Diagnoses, Outcomes and Interventions: NANDA, NOC and NIC
Linkages" illustrates links among three of the standardized languages
recognized by the American Nurses Association. For each diagnosis defined
by the North American Nursing Diagnosis Association, the book lists relevant
patient outcomes defined by the Nursing Outcomes Classification developed
at the UI. Likewise, each outcome lists appropriate interventions as described
by the Nursing Interventions Classification, also developed at the UI. The
book's preface states these linkages should facilitate use of the standard
nursing languages in clinical practice, teaching and medical information systems.
