Efforts to implement and use standardized nursing language in this community hospital have been ongoing for several decades. Implementation of the Nursing Outcomes Classification (NOC) is the final step in reaching the goal of using standardized language to describe the diagnoses, interventions, and outcomes used by nurses at this facility in their clinical practice. The obstetrics department was selected as the initial unit to implement a computerized patient record because of its ability to provide testing of the many challenges provided by technology and the demands for capturing data from monitors. The new system uses NOC to measure the outcomes of care provided to mothers in labor. A total of 42 outcomes were identified for testing as a part of the research on this unit. This paper will report the validity and reliability of the NOC outcome measurement scales, issues identified in the use of NOC outcomes with this population, and the core nursing diagnoses, interventions, and outcomes used by this specialty for the mothers in this study.
