Purpose: The purpose of the study is to test reliability, content validity and nursing-sensitivity of 6 community-level outcomes expected to be useful for community/public health nursing. The outcomes, selected from the Nursing Outcomes Classification (NOC)(2000), are among the first efforts of nursing to name and describe phenomena at the community or population level. Valid community-level outcomes will enable study of the efficacy and effectiveness of community/public health nursing interventions with population aggregates and communities. Framework: Community-level outcomes are included in the Community domain of the NOC taxonomy. Six other individual- and family-level categories are included at this most abstract level of the taxonomy, which was developed using hierarchical clustering techniques. The NOC is a comprehensive taxonomy of 260 outcomes developed using both inductive and deductive approaches. Outcomes are individual, family and community states, behaviors and perceptions influenced by nursing interventions across specialties and settings. Each NOC outcome includes a label, a definition, a list of specific indicators and a measurement scale. Sample: One hundred community/public health nursing experts randomly selected from membership lists obtained from the Association of Community Health Nursing Educators (ACHNE) and the Public Health Nursing Section of the American Public Health Association (APHA) were invited to participate in the study. Method: A survey research design is being used, with each expert asked to provide ratings on a mailed questionnaire. The questionnaire, adapted from similar instruments used in previous NOC research, requests ratings of 10-20 indicators for each of the 6 outcomes for: 1) importance for measuring the outcome and 2) nursing contribution. Data will be analyzed to estimate content validity and nursing-sensitivity of the outcomes. Quantitative analysis will be modeled after the methods used by Fehring (1986, 1987); qualitative analyses of expert comments and suggestions will also be performed.
