Evaluation of NOC standardized outcome of "health seeking behavior" in nurse-managed clinics



Evaluation of NOC standardized outcome of "health seeking behavior" in nurse-managed clinics



Journal of Nursing Care Quality 21(3): 242-247



This study evaluated the accomplishment of the Nursing Outcomes Classification (NOC) outcome "Health Seeking Behavior" in 5 nurse-managed clinics. Nurse practitioners and registered nurses rated patients on 11 indicators of health seeking behaviors, and recorded their level of knowledge of the patient. A total of 556 evaluations were collected. Health seeking behavior scores were lowest in a rural county school-based clinic and highest in a federally qualified health center. Ratings increased with nurses' knowledge of patients and for older patients.
