    I wonder if this is a regional thing. I never heard of NOC until I started here on allnurses. I mean I know what it means, but the shift being called NOC, never heard it.

    it will depend on the duty roster policy of the institution as has been suggested it may be a Night shift from the (cod) latin Nocte , it may be a general 'on call period' or it may be a Night time on call

    If its regarding nursing care plans they use NIC and NOC

    They are the Iowa
    NIC Nursing Intervention Classification
    NOC Nursing Outcomes Classification

    I found this info in Nursing Care Plans, Nursing Diagnosis and Intervention 6th Edition Gulanick/Myers
