Purpose/Aim: The purpose of this concept analysis is to provide a better understanding of the term "nursing errors" as it relates to nursing practice. Our goal is to provide nursing researchers and clinicians studying nursing errors with a clearer definition of the concept as they develop operational definitions, and both measurement and evaluation instruments for this concept. Definition of Concept: Nursing errors are mistakes made by individual nurses during practice as defined by a taxonomy of type of mistakes. Concept Analysis Approach: Walker and Avant's (2005) method of concept analysis was utilized. This process includes reviewing definitions and the literature to find essential, related and useless attributes of the concept. A conceptual definition is created and then case stories are developed. Model, related and contrary cases are presented to provide concept clarification. Antecedents and consequences are determined for the concept. Finally, empirical referents are identified to measure the defining attributes of the concept. Concept Linkage to Practice: Nursing practice errors happen. Since the Institute of Medicine's report (1999) addressing health care errors, there has been a more open environment in which to assess, analyze and evaluate practice errors. The concept analysis of nursing practice errors is a beginning step toward understanding nurse mistakes made while providing care to patients. Conclusion: The concept of nursing practice errors has relevance for nursing researchers. Because of the potentially life-threatening consequences of health care errors, it is imperative that nursing be at the forefront of creating safe environments for patients and nurses alike. Institute of Medicine (1999).
