Survey: Nursing Terminologies

  1. A project is being conducted entitled: Standardized Nursing Terminologies: What are Nurses Experiences and Attitudes?

    As you are probably aware, there is currently a big move to computerize
    health records including nursing documentation. If nursing is to have
    our data in a format in which it can be used to demonstrate the value
    that we add to healthcare, we will need to use an ANA-recognized
    terminology for some of our documentation. Given the plethora of
    standardized terminologies, there is much confusion about this issue.

    Patricia Schwirian, PhD,RN--Professor Emeritus at The Ohio State
    University and Linda Thede, PhD,RN-BC--Professor Emeritus at Kent State
    University are interested in your opinions about the current nursing
    terminologies and their use or non-use. You are invited to participate
