Norwegian ICNP Research & Development Centre

The mission of the ICN Accredited Norwegian ICNP Research & Development Centre is to establish a national network to advance the integration and use of the International Classification for Nursing Practice (ICNP) in nursing practice. The Centre will disseminate and translate ICNP into Norwegian and contribute to ICNP development through research projects, dissemination of ICNP into education of nursing students and nurses, and involvement of clinical practice in the use of ICNP in close collaboration with national and international partners. The centre will also coordinate and quality ensure standard care plans, which will be the basis for national use. The Centre is in continuous collaboration with the Norwegian Nurses Organisation (NNO) and other stakeholders.
