What Is the NANDA Nursing Interventions Classification?

NANDA International, the Nursing Interventions Classification, and the Nursing Outcomes Classification are comprehensive and standardized classifications that serve as guides of best practices for different nursing situations, according to the NANDA website. A broad range of health facilities use the three frameworks internationally.

Nurses in acute-care hospitals, long-term rehabilitation facilities and patients' homes refer to NANDA when making clinical decisions. The American Nurses' Association recognizes NANDA International, the Nursing Interventions Classification, and the Nursing Outcomes Classification as does the National Library of Medicine's Metathesaurus for a Unified Medical Language and the Cumulative Index to Nursing Literature, according to the NANDA website.
