Standardized Nursing Language
Posted by Laura on January 20, 2015
Standardized nursing language enables better communication among nurses and other health care providers. by increasing visibility of nursing interventions, standardized nursing language improves patient care and enhances data collection to evaluate nursing care outcomes.
You can read a nice article on standardized nursing language on the ANA site here: Standardized nursing language: What does it mean for nursing practice?
The ANA recognizes 12 languages. Two of them actually make up one of them. Where I work we use the Peri-Operative Nursing Data Set (PNDS). You can find the list here. This document has links to where you may find more information on each one.
