Abstract

International Classification for Nursing Practice (ICNP®) was developed as the standardized terminology by the International Council of Nursing (ICN) since 1999. It is important to evaluate the applicability of using ICNP® as the electronic nursing data exchange standardization when adopting in Taiwan. A total of 87% clinical nursing problems could be cross-mapped to DC axis of ICNP® version 2 in traditional Chinese language (Kappa =.96). Only five nursing problems (following care problem; blood transfusion; potential risk for unstable blood sugar level; hyperbilirubinemia; and caregiver anxiety) couldn't be matched. ICNP® could mostly support the electronic nursing data exchange standardization. Developing Taiwan-ICNP® as the local terminology was seemed to be the strategy to create a more adoptive standardization across the country for Taiwan health care data exchange in the future.
