A survey of 111 critical care nurses was carried out to determine the frequency with which they perform each of the 336 interventions in the NIC. Forty-nine interventions were used at least daily, indicating a set of core interventions unique to critical care practice. These findings have implications for critical care practice, education, and research.

Although nurses constitute the largest single group of healthcare providers in the United States, confusion exists about what nurses actually do. This article provides an overview of the Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC), which is the first comprehensive classification of nursing treatments. Quality management professionals will find the NIC useful in designing quality management programs, meeting Joint Commission standards, and planning redesign initiatives.

A research team at the University of Iowa has been working for 5 years to develop a classification of nursing interventions. Conceptual work to clarify the nature of a nursing intervention was needed. An inductive approach was taken to group discrete nursing activities and attach a conceptual label. Fehring's methodology was adapted for soliciting input from nurse experts for the 134 labels described in this issue. These labels are a part of the standardized language in the Iowa classification.

The interaction of autonomy (control over work activities) and social integration (relationships with co-workers) was investigated in a sample of newly employed nurses in the 6th and 12th month of work. Those nurses with low autonomy and low social integration reported low job satisfaction and work motivation, poor commitment to the organization and less intent to stay on the job. They were older, with more experience and more education and tended to work on medical units. This study supports th...

Thirty-three items originally developed to measure three dimensions of nurses' job satisfaction were subjected to a series of checks designed to determine the number of dimensions being measured and the reliability and validity of the measures of these dimensions. Although the hypothesis of only three dimensions was not supported, the eight interpretable factors that did emerge could meaningfully be placed within these three dimensions. The eight factors were satisfaction with extrinsic rewards,...
