Taxonomy of Nursing Practice

    The Taxonomy of Nursing Practice ( Dochterman & Jones, 2003) consists of four domains and 28 classes. The structure resulted from an invitational conference effort in 2001 to provide an organizing structure useful for all nursing classifications to promote linkages among diagnoses, interventions, and outcomes

    It is a structure that is different from the existing structures of NANDA, NIC, and NOC, yet is not a radical departure from any. It is also placed in the public domain, available for use by any group or individual. 

    The 2004 editions of NIC and NOC include placements of interventions and outcomes in this structure as well as their own structures. The NNN Alliance Conference in March 2004 includes sessions to further the ongoing effort to refine and use this common taxonomy.

Benefits of Taxonomy 

    A taxonomy that classifies nursing knowledge is useful to assist the clinician in identifying related concepts, and assists in the designing of nursing information systems and in organizing nursing curricula. 

    The organization of nursing knowledge helps to identify what is known and can be used to support clinical decision making, and what is not known and needs more research. Multiple other benefits of taxonomy are also mentioned in the literature.
