The Nursing Outcomes Classification (NOC) is a comprehensive, standardized classification of patient outcomes developed to evaluate the effects of nursing interventions. An outcome is stated as a variable concept representing an individual, family, or community condition that is measurable along a continuum and responsive to nursing interventions. Each outcome has a definition, a list of indicators that can be used to evaluate patient status in relation to the outcome, and a five-point Likert scale to measure patient status. The 190 patient outcomes in the first edition of NOC are currently being tested in 13 settings in Iowa, Illinois, Michigan and Minnesota. The settings represent the continuum of care from acute care to home care. This paper describes the current research focused on evaluating the reliability and validity of the outcomes in practice. The methods used to test inter-rater reliability and criterion validity are described. The issues and benefits identified from the analysis of data collected to date are identified and discussed in relation to the use of standardized outcome measurement in nursing practice. This paper will provide the overview for the following papers focused on detailed findings for specific populations and settings.
