Measuring the impact of nursing care on patient outcomes is a complex task. Nurses make up a large proportion of the healthcare workforce and interact with patients in almost every aspect of a person’s healthcare experience. Despite the large volume of research that examines nursing care and patient outcomes, there has been no agreement on what should be measured and no consensus on how the broad actions of nurses should be evaluated.
