Correct Answer: The Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC)
Rationale : The Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC) is standardized classification of interventions that
describes the activities that nurses perform. NIC is used in all care settings. An intervention is described as “any
treatment, based upon clinical judgment and knowledge, that a nurse performs to enhance patient/client
outcomes“ (The University of Iowa, 2010a). The current NIC edition (2008) has 542 interventions (Bulechek,
Butcher, & Dochterman, 2008). The interventions are grouped together by 30 classes and seven domains. Each
intervention includes a label name, a definition, a unique code, and associated nursing activities.

Cognitive Level: Understanding
Client Need: Safe Effective Care Environment
