Title:
Beyond Competency: Dimensional Analysis of the Concept of Nursing Performance
Abstract:
Beyond Competency: Dimensional Analysis of the Concept of Nursing Performance
Conference Sponsor:Midwest Nursing Research Society
Conference Year:2010
Author:Thul, Genevieve, BSN
P.I. Institution Name:Medical University of South Carolina
Title:Nursing
Contact Address:7663 25th St, Colfax, WI, 54730, USA

Co-Authors:G.M. Thul, College of Nursing, Medical University of South Carolina, Charleston, SC; J.S. Holmen, Accounting & Business Administration, University of Wisconsin Eau Claire, Eau Claire, WI;
Background: Nursing performance has been extensively studied, but little has been determined regarding its accurate and meaningful measurement in nursing practice. Nursing performance is used in many contexts and by many different disciplines, but there is no universal definition of the term in use today. Purpose: The aim of this concept analysis is to explore the operationalization of the term "nursing performance" within nursing practice, nursing research, and the health care world as a whole. Because differences in use of this term across professions could have a broad impact on the practical delivery of nursing care, it is important to define the term clearly in both conceptual and practical terms. Methodology/Apoach: The analysis includes 33 papers from the fields of nursing, medicine, health economics, and business and finance. Dimensional analysis was applied to an integrative review of the nursing and medical research literature; a secondary review of cited sources within those articles identified by the primary search was also completed. Caron and Bowers' adaptation of Schatzman's dimensional analysis is the method used to study this concept. Findings: Four dimensions of nursing performance are identified: avoidance of adverse patient outcomes, core competence, contextual competence, and provision of a product. The perspective of the researcher vastly affects the assumptions and definitions assigned to this term. Practice Implications: Many implications for future research are identified and explored in the discussion. This analysis contributes to the interdisciplinary understanding of the concept of nursing performance by defining the use of the term in current research.
