Abstract

Measuring nursing contribution to health services' outcomes represents a primary issue for nursing research internationally. The aim of this literature review was to outline main research lines studying the effect of nursing practice on health. A search of the literature was performed asking health and nursing-specific major database and consulting websites of authoritative nursing associations and scientific societies. Four main nursing research lines were found in literature and they concerned, nurse staffing and patient and staff-related outcomes; level of nursing care needed to achieve attended outcomes in hospitals; practice environments and patient and staff-related outcomes; the use of nursing terminologies and classifications to describe nursing-specific and nursing sensitive outcomes. Although researchers report the need to strengthen available evidences, recommendations suggest to empower nurses and nursing in clinical, educational, organizational and policy-making settings in order to draw toward the best health outcomes for communities.
