In this assignment you will review the material at the Center for Nursing Classification and Clinical Effectiveness website on Nursing Interventions Classification (NIC) and Nursing Outcomes Classifications (NOC).
After reviewing both sites you will then answer a few questions. When answering the questions, you are to write a “several” page response. The paper should be in APA 6th Edition format – double spaced, standard margins, Times New Roman 12 point font, and spelling and grammar are important. A Title Page is required as is a reference page if you are citing any materials paraphrased or quoted… but no abstract is required.
